Champion honours for Ruud Awakening


Ruud Awakening has been named Champion Two-year-old of the Year at the black tie New Zealand Thoroughbred awards held in Hamilton last night.

Ruud Awakening beat rivals Recite and Bounding for the top award.

Trainer Stephen Marsh, Racing Manager Albert Bosma and several syndicate members, including Sir Colin and Lady Meads, were on hand to accept the award.

Says Albert, “We are absolutely thrilled. She deserves this – no question. Last year she took her owners on the ride of their lives. We’re expecting her three-year-old season to be just as exciting.”

Ruud Awakening kicks off her spring campaign in Melbourne on 7 September.
