Investing in an Oaks victory

Having produced an excellent run when finish fourth, just over a length from the winner at her last start in the G3 Auraria Stakesover 1800m, the Newhaven Park Stud-owned three-year-old filly Invest was too good on April 28, recording a long neck victory in the G1 Schweppes Oaks at Morphettville.

Ridden to perfection by Peter Mertens, the Clarry Conners-trained filly settled back in the field before making a searching runbefore the home turn. Setting out after outsider Essence, who had leadthroughout, Invest dived between runners to snatch victory and deny the latecharge of the Cranbourne-trained Our Miss Jones, with Essence holding on forthird.

By Dehere, out of the G1-winning Zabeel mare Unearthly, Investis the second stakes winner in the space of seven days that is bred on theexact same cross; the other being two-year-old filly Dear Demi, also trained byClarry Conners.

Having enjoyed tremendous success in the racing and breeding of top class horses, Newhaven Park have bred or raced five Golden Slipper winners, with the honour role also including G1 winners Wenona Girl, John’s Hope, Burst, Absolute Champion, Prowl, Research, Encounter, Grand Armee and Arborea, to name but a few.

With stallion fees for the forthcoming season seemingly being announced daily, Newhaven Park offer breeders the opportunity to agist their mares, as well as spell racehorses and guide young stock through the arduous yearling preparation. All aspects of the breeding regime are dealt with by Newhaven Park Stud, and when you become a client of the farm, you raise your expectations on the outcome you would normally expect.
