Top mare a perfect fit for Munz

A change in the ownership of Perfect Fit hasn’t altered plans for the Group One winner.
Under his GSA Bloodstock banner, Melbourne breeding and racing identity Johnathan Munz has bought into Haunui Farm’s daughter of Elusive City.
“Johnathan has purchased a half share in her,” Munz’s Cambridge-based bloodstock manager Dean Hawthorne said. “She’ll run in the Foxbridge Plate first-up and hopefully the track will be okay for her.
“She doesn’t mind a bit of cut in the ground, but we don’t want it too testing, and if she’s going well then she’ll head to the Tarzino Trophy.”
Perfect Fit’s future programme will be determined by her performance in the opening leg of the Triple Crown series at Hastings.
“She has got a date with Exceed And Excel and we would prefer to get her in foal this year, but that’s not set in stone,” Hawthorne said.
“If she was very strong in the Tarzino we could even look at something in Sydney.”
Perfect Fit has won six of her 16 starts with victory in the 2016 Gr.1 New Zealand Thoroughbred Breeders’ Stakes her career highlight. Earlier this year, she also placed at Group One level in the Railway and the Telegraph.
The Ken and Bev Kelso-trained six-year-old was subsequently spelled and last week she pleased when successful in an open trial at Te Teko.
“She pulled up well and had a good blow out so she’s going to improve,” Ken Kelso said. “She’s in good order and very forward.”
