The eyecatching grey son of Danasinga and Principation (pictured right) had six starts for six wins – on debut however he was relegated to fourth for running greenly and causing interference. Hamlet’s Ghost is the first horse to be on Te Akau’s Roll of Honour who hasn’t won a stakes’ race however the manner in which he scored each of his victories was scintillating and he quickly became a public talking point, especially after his breathtaking win at Matamata.

When his racing career concludes he will return to New Zealand to retire with his former part owners Aussie and Leslie Browne of Christchurch.
