He Kin Fly (NZ) Takes Timaru StakesSaturday, Jan 26, 2019
Karaka weanling purchase He Kin Fly (NZ) (Darci Brahma) scored his first stakes win in Saturday’s $50,000 Listed Speight’s Timaru Stakes (1400m) at Riccarton.
Given a ground-saving ride by Terry Moseley, the six-year-old pounced at the 300-metre mark, kicking away impressively to win by a length and a quarter.
Bought for $62,500 at the 2013 National Weanling, Broodmare & Mixed Bloodstock Sale, He Kin Fly has now had 22 starts for five wins and five placings. He has earned $236,488 in prizemoney – almost four times his purchase price. He won a race in Hong Kong under the name Big Flash.
“I’ve always thought he was good enough to win a big race, so he deserved this one,” trainer Neill Ridley told NZ Racing Desk.
“Things set up nicely for him as they went pretty hard in front and he likes it with the pace on. It was also a lovely ride by Terry.”
He Kin Fly is now owned by E & K J Corby, D Eyles, B J & Mrs M A Harvey and S W Ridley.
