New Zealand import Wrote To Arataki has set the standard high for the stable in 2023 by taking out the 1400m fillies and mares BM 70 at Flemington on new years day in convincing style.
Known to be a back marker, Matthew had given jockey Jamie Kah a more open script as to where she settled during the run depending on race tempo. Having jumped fast from the slightly sticky gate in barrier nine she went straight to the lead and controlled the race. On straightening she was one length clear and kicked away proving too strong to the line.
Congratulations to her connections, Wrote To Arataki will now have a well deserved crack at some black type.
