First Classic winner for Pour Moi
02 Jun 2016 | By

Windsor Park Stud's shuttle stallion Pour Moi not only had his first Pattern winner on Sunday in the shape of Naas Gr.3 winner Only Mine, but also his first Classic winner. 

His well-bred son Nemqueteba made all to run out the impressive winner of the Gran Premio Villapadierna, the Spanish Derby, at La Zarzuela in Madrid.

Relishing faster conditions than he had experienced when beaten three weeks ago, the colt was allowed an uncontested lead this time and had his rivals beaten by the home turn, eventually passing the post nearly three lengths clear of his nearest pursuer Again Charlie (Medecis).

The 2011 English Derby winner Pour Moi, shuttled to New Zealand for two seasons and has 105 foals on the ground f, including exciting juvenile Sacred Elixir, who is favourite for the Gr.1 JJ Atkins and returns to Windsor Park this spring.
