1st - $70,000 GROUP 3 Hawkes' Bay Breeders' Gold Trail Stakes 3YOF 1200m

Bred and raced by Tony Rider, and entrusted to Te Akau, Miss Aotearoa showed her talent very early to trainer Jamie Richards.

Finishing a close up 5th on debut behind a stablemate quinella of Need I Say More (two time Group 3 winner) and exciting Savabeel filly Cornflower Blue, her 2YO campaign was interrupted by the COVID-19 lockdown.

As a strengthened three year old, Miss Aotearoa won her second start at Taupo in August 2020.  Under a month later, she announced ‘her arrival’ with a scintillating win in the $70,000 Hawkes’ Bay Breeders’ Gold Trail Stakes for three year old fillies in the hands of Danielle Johnson, earning valuable early points for the NZB Filly of the Year Series.   A race won two years prior by Te Akau glamour mare Avantage.

Te Akau has trained five winners of this prestigious series – Princess Coup, Shikoba, King’s Rose, Costa Viva and Insouciant.  No other stable has won more that two titles.

Miss Aotearoa has raced three times for two wins and $52,050 in prize money.
