Severine recorded a well-deserved NZ Cup Week win when successful in the Teltrac Premier (1400m) on Saturday at the final meeting of the carnival.
The daughter of Pins had been building up to the victory after recording placings at her last two starts.
Under a patient ride from Samantha Wynne, the Go Racing French Cutlet Syndicate-owned Severine travelled midfield and looked like she would strike traffic troubles before the gap opened on the straight and the pair raced past their rivals to win by half a length over the fast finishing Lady Byron.
“It was a good win from Severine,” trainer Andrew Carston said. “She is a filly I have always liked but has just taken a bit of time.
“I believe she will train on now and we will probably take her to Cromwell for her next run.”
The Go Racing stable is enjoying a strong run of form with Severine becoming the sixth winner this month.
