At Ellerslie in New Zealand, Windsor Park Stud's ill-fated Gr1-winning stallion Thorn Park (Spinning World-Joy, by Bluebird) celebrated an elite Gr1 success when 5YO gelding Ryan Mark (Thorn Park-Annalee, by Kingdom Bay) scored by a neck for trainer John Morell in the NZ$200,000 Gr1 Railway Stakes (1200m) for 3YO+, over fellow 5YO gelding Allez Eagle (Guillotine-Alleyrun, by Volksraad) & 7YO gelding Natuzzi (Coats Choice-Monsanto, by Kilimanjaro). This was the first top-flight victory for Ryan Mark who took his record to 8 wins (including the Gr3 Arawa Stakes & Listed Waikato RC Sprint Handicap) and 5 placings (including the Gr1 Makfi Challenge Stakes) from 15 starts for NZ$334,135 earnings.
