At Te Rapa in New Zealand, 4-time Gr1-winning Windsor Park Stud shuttler & former European Champion 2YO Mastercraftsman (Danehill Dancer-Starlight Dreams, by Black Tie Affair) celebrated an elite Gr1 success when 3YO filly Valley Girl (Mastercraftsman-Leigh Valley, by Bianconi) scored by 0.75-length for trainers Donna Logan & Chris Gibbs in the NZ$300,000 Gr1 Herbie Dyke Stakes (2000m) for 3YO+, over 4YO mare Stolen Dance (Alamosa-Songbird, by Black Minnaloushe) & 5YO gelding Kawi (Savabeel-Magic Time, by Volksraad). This was the first stakes victory for Valley Girl who took her record to 3 wins and 1 placing (including the Gr2 Eight Carat Classic) from 6 starts for NZ$236,125 earnings. Valley Girl was passed in for NZ$50,000 at the 2014 NZ Bloodstock Premier Yearling Sale from the draft of Wentwood Grange.
