At Te Rapa in New Zealand, 4-time Gr1-winning Windsor Park Stud shuttler & former European Champion 2YO Mastercraftsman (Danehill Dancer-Starlight Dreams, by Black Tie Affair) added a Group success when 3YO filly Mime (Mastercraftsman-Maidjeu, by Montjeu) scored by 1-length for trainers Murray Baker & Andrew Forsman in the NZ$100,000 Gr2 Sir Tristram Fillies Classic (2000m) for 3YO fillies, over fellow fillies Promise To Reign (Manhattan Rain-Certain Promise, by El Prado) & Capella (Rip Van Winkle-Limerick, by Grosvenor). This was the first stakes victory for Mime who took her record to 3 wins and 5 placings from 9 starts for NZ$108,525 earnings. Mime was passed in for NZ$13,000 at the 2014 NZB Select Yearling Sale from the draft of Mapperley Stud.
