No More Tears in the Soliloquy Stakes

October 30, 2015

Promising three-year-old filly No More Tears (NZ) (Darci Brahma) scored her second stakes victory in the $50,000 Listed Harold Plumley Junior Soliloquy Stakes (1400m) at Ellerslie yesterday.

From the stable of Stephen Marsh, No More Tears made a stakes winning debut late autumn in the Listed Hamilton Vets Equine Stakes as a juvenile. Returning as a three-year-old, her last start saw her flashing home to finish fourth in the Group 3 Windsor Park/Hawke’s Bay Breeders Gold Trail Stakes.

“Not many horses that have had three starts have two wins at black-type level and she will come on again,” commented Marsh. “She’s nearly right in the coat now.”

No More Tears holds a nomination to run in the Group 1 New Zealand Bloodstock 1000 Guineas, held on 14 November at Riccarton Park.

Drawn the widest, jockey Michael Coleman and No More Tears jumped quickly to cross to the front of the field and settle behind the leader, Untamed Diamond (Snitzel). Edging forward as the field entered the straight, the daughter of Darci Brahma drove to the lead, with High Class (NZ) (Shocking) challenging on her the outside.

The uncatchable No More Tears fought off all challengers to win strongly by three-quarters-of-a-length over High Class, who made the Karaka quinella, with Secret Spirit (NZ) (Swiss Ace) in third.

A dual stakes-winner from just three starts, the three-year-old filly has totalled $64,750 in prizemoney to date for connections of the Go Racing Don’t Cry Syndicate, managed by Albert Bosma.

Bosma’s Go Racing purchased No More Tears at New Zealand Bloodstock’s 2014 Select Sale for $75,000 from Ardsley Stud.

Bred by DW Wallace, the daughter of Darci Brahma is out of Ocean of Tears (Minardi), a half-sister to the winner of the Group 2 Reisling Stakes Hips Don’t Lie (Stravinsky) and stakes placegetters Acquired (O’Reilly), Azevedo (Helissio) and Procurement (O’Reilly).
