At Trentham in New Zealand, Waikato Stud's Cox Plate winning stallion Savabeel (Zabeel-Savannah Success, by Success Express) celebrated an elite race success when 7YO New Zealand-bred gelding Kawi (Savabeel-Magic Time, by Volksraad) scored a gallant win in the $200,000 Gr1 weight-for-age Gr1 Captain Cook Stakes (1600m) for 3YO+, defeating Consensus & Sofia Rosa. Kawi advanced his record to 15 wins (including the Gr1 WFA Classic, Gr1 Windsor Park Plate, Gr1 Makfi Challenge Stakes - twice, Gr1 Thorndon Mile, Gr1 Zabeel Classic, Gr3 Taranaki Cup & Listed Anniversary Handicap) and 11 placings (including the Gr1 Windsor Park Plate, Gr1 Easter Handicap & Gr1 Herbie Dyke Stakes) from 37 starts for NZ$1,217,149 in earnings. "He's a very good horse – he sat four wide and that's not how we saw it, but he was tough enough," trainer Allan Sharrock told NZ Racing Desk. "He was travelling on the corner, it was a terrific effort." The Captain Cook was Kawi's seventh Group 1 victory and saw him draw level with champion mare Seachange. Kawi needs just one more top-flight success to equal the feat of former two-time New Zealand Horse of the Year Mufhasa who holds the record of eight domestic Group 1 wins.
