Wairere Falls (NZ) (Savabeel) is loving life in Sydney and added to his record in fine style on the Kensington track at Randwick on Wednesday.
The well-related Savabeel four-year-old picked up a maiden success and three placings during his time at the Victorian arm of Chris Waller’s operation and since his move to Rosehill has really blossomed.
Wairere Falls came from last to win at Hawkesbury before producing an identical performance on Wednesday with jockey Tommy Berry giving the gelding plenty of time to find his feet before powering to an emphatic victory.
“He’s a lovely horse and got a beautiful style about him. Since we’ve ridden him quietly he’s showed a good turn of foot and it was pretty soft in the end,” Berry said.
“He’s definitely up to Saturday company and more comfortable on top of the ground.”
Wairere Falls was bought out of Waikato Stud’s draft at New Zealand Bloodstock’s National Yearling Sale by successful syndicators Go Racing for $280,000.
He is a half-brother to the four-time Group One winner and late sire Sacred Falls with their dam Iguazu’s Girl a half-sister to the Gr.3 Thoroughbred Club Stakes winner Splashing Out.
