At Ellerslie in New Zealand, Cambridge Stud's dual Gr1-winning stallion Tavistock (Montjeu-Upstage, by Quest For Fame) celebrated an elite success when 4YO gelding Volkstok'n'Barrell (Tavistock-Volkster, by Volksraad) scored by a nose for trainer Donna Logan in the NZ$200,000 Gr1 New Zealand Stakes (2000m) for 3YO+, over 5YO mare Girl Of My Dreams (Gold Centre-O'Noyoudont, by O'Reilly) & 4YO mare Consensus (Postponed-Kate Cross, by Cape Cross). Volkstok'n'Barrel took his record to 8 wins (including the Gr1 WFA Classic, Gr1 Rosehill Guineas, Gr2 Great Northern Guineas & Gr3 Bonecrusher Stakes) and 4 placings (including the Gr1 Australian Derby) from 18 starts for NZ$1,043,840 earnings. Volstok'n'Barrel was a NZ$50,000 purchase by Logan at the 2013 NZB National Yearling Sale. Logan confirmed that Volkstok'n'Barrell was now likely to head to Sydney where he holds entries in the Gr1 Doncaster Mile and Gr1 Queen Elizabeth Stakes.
