Bennetta wins G2 Light Fingers Stakes
Feb 16, 2013
The Grahame Begg-trained fill Bennetta today won the Group 2 Light Fingers Stakes at Rosehill, wearing the Triabit, and is now headed for the G1 Coolmore Stud Stakes.
Ridden beautifully by James McDonald to her third straight win, Benetta relaxed well in the race and was too powerful for her rivals over the 1200m trip. Dear Demi (the winner of the G1 VRC Oaks in the Triabit) was unlucky to not run second to complete a Triabit 1-2, a feat already achieved earlier in the day at Rosehill by Frozen Rope and Carry Me Bluey.

Feb 02, 2013
Wearing the Triabit, Castlzeberg today won the Group 2 Waikato Guineas. Trained by former champion jockey, Bob Vance, Castlzeberg won the Guineas by a convincing three and three-quarter length margin.
Having just his sixth start in a race, Castlzeberg was challenged on the home turn but had too much for his rivals in the closing stages of the 2,000 metre race.
