Kiwis Flying at Kranji

Flying Fulton (NZ) continued his love affair with the polytrack surface when adding a sixth black-type victory in the G3 Marsiling Classic Stakes (1800m) at Kranji on Sunday.

Flying Fulton (7g Flying Spur – Fulton by Zabeel) has proven a highly consistent galloper winning stakes races at two in New Zealand and as a five, six and seven-year-old in Singapore.

The Mark Walker trained gelding dictated terms in front on Sunday to score by three-quarters of a length.  “I think we will head to the Singapore Cup in May,” said Walker.  “They pay good prizemoney all the way down to sixth and we’ve already got people from New Zealand interested in coming up.

“We will run him in the G3 Moonbeam Vase (1800m) on April 7 and the G2 QEII Cup (2000m) on April 26 as he’s a bit of a gross horse.  He’s racing well and deserves his chance at the better horses.”

Raced by the Te Akau Racing Stable, Flying Fulton was sold by Mana Park for $210,000 at the 2008 NZB Ready to Run Sale.  The Marsiling Classic continued a big season for NZB Ready to Run Sale graduates following Sangster (G1 NZ Stakes & G1 Auckland Cup) and Nashville (G1 Haunui Farm WFA Classic).

New Zealand bred horses and Karaka graduates won 5 of the 12 races in Singapore on Sunday night with Mulan (Savabeel), Yourstokeep (Keeper) and Super Junior (Darci Brahma) also successful.
