Jennifer Eccles returns Saturday week
2020 New Zealand Bloodstock 3YO Filly of the Year Jennifer Eccles (Rip Van Winkle) will return to competition in Saturday week's Dunstan Feeds Auckland Thoroughbred Breeders' Stakes-Gr.2 (WFA, F & M, 1400m) at Pukekohe.
Last season's NZ Oaks winner has had two runs this season, resuming with a fourth placing in Callsign Mav's Tarzino Trophy-Gr.1 (1400m) before an out-of-character unplaced effort in Melody Belle's Windsor Park Plate-Gr.1 (1600m). The half-million dollar earner was sent for a two week break with Luke Pertab in South Auckland and has returned to the stable a happy horse.
Jennifer Eccles is owned & raced by the Challenge Ten Syndicate from the Cambridge stable of Shaune Ritchie & Colm Murray.
