Valachi On Fire

Hot on the heels of the Valachi Downs Stud bred War Legend's convincing win in the 1400m Mitavite Challenge Heat 5 at Ladbrokes Park Lakeside, Australia on Wednesday, we now turn our attention to Saturday where all eyes will be on Savile Row (Makfi x Fleece) in the Group 1 $1 Million Vodafone New Zealand Derby at 5.21pm (NZ time).

We see a strong field lining up for the race, though all signs point towards Savile Row if he can put it together on the day.

Valachi is on fire; with Kevin Hickman one of the great contributors to New Zealand racing well and truly making his mark as an extraordinarily successful breeder. Connections can only hope that tomorrow will see Hickman’s impressive form continue on with Savile Row.

Hickman, no stranger to the pressures and task ahead, will be looking for his second Derby success whilst Mike Moroney will be looking for his fourth.

Michael Coleman will be aboard, bringing a wealth of Derby experience to the table having ridden two of Moroney’s previous winners.

The stage is set for a thrilling New Zealand Derby Day!
