Group 3 Win for Karaka Graduate Consommateur (NZ)Sunday, Mar 19, 2017
Lightly raced four-year-old Consommateur (NZ) (Roc de Cambes) tackled stakes company for the first time in Saturday’s A$150,000 Group 3 Bradford Black Epona Stakes (1900m) at Rosehill, and she came out a winner.
Bought from The Oaks Stud’s draft at the 2014 Select Sale for $30,000, Consommateur came from off the pace in the fillies and mares’ feature and powered through the wet ground to win by two and three-quarter lengths.
The win was Consommateur’s third from six career starts, and she has placed in all of the other three. Her prize-money earnings now stand at A$128,600.
“Her whole aim this preparation was this race,” trainer Mick Kent said. “She is owned up here by a good client of mine, Geoff Evers. We bought her in New Zealand.
“She is out of a Zabeel mare. She has taken her time and is a very big mare. She will be better next year.”
Consommateur was bred by The Oaks Stud and is a half-sister to the stakes placegetter Single Act (NZ) (Bachelor Duke).
Offered by The Oaks stud at the 2014 Select Sale, Consommateur was bought by NZB as agent for $30,000.
