Goodwood graduate honoured
07 Jun 2017The Ellerslie deeds of the outstanding three-year-old Gingernuts were acknowledged at the Ellerslie Awards ceremony held during their Queen’s Birthday meeting.
“He won the Outstanding Performance of the Year for his win in the Avondale Guineas and also won Ellerslie Horse of the Year, which is voted on by club officials and selected media,” Auckland Racing Club executive general manager Craig Baker said.
“The Outstanding Performance award was a club members and public vote, via social media, and it’s fair to say that he won pretty easily.”
In the Gr.2 Avondale Guineas, the Stephen Autridge and Jamie Richards-trained Gingernuts came from last after missing the start by five lengths.
A Goodwood Stud graduate, the gelding is by Iffraaj out of the winning Generous mare Double Elle.
