Classy Win for Couturiere (NZ) at Tauranga
28 Nov 2019

Less than 24 hours after a brilliant debut win by Aloft (NZ) (Atlante) at Rotorua, another exciting three-year-old filly has carried the Pencarrow colours to victory.

The Peter and Dawn Williams-trained Couturiere (NZ) (Pins) cleared maiden grade in the second start of her career on Thursday, winning the $10,000 Chemwash 1200 at Tauranga with a quality performance.

An unlucky sixth on debut at Pukekohe earlier this month, Couturierie settled in sixth place in a strung-out field in Thursday’s maiden sprint.

Jockey Michael Coleman got her into the clear in the straight and she quickened stylishly, reeling in the leaders and scoring by three-quarters of a length in a fast time of 1:10.41.

Couturiere was bred by Pencarrow Thoroughbreds Ltd and is owned by Sir Peter Vela.

Her dam is Velvet and Satin (NZ) (Carnegie), a half-sister to the champion staying mare Ethereal (NZ) (Rhythm), whose four Group 1 wins included the Caulfield and Melbourne Cups.

Velvet and Satin herself placed in four stakes races including the Group 1 New Zealand 1000 Guineas (1600m), and she is now the dam of six winners from eight foals to race. That group includes Couturiere’s full-brother Bespoke (NZ) (Pins), who won the Listed Welcome Stakes (1000m).

Velvet and Satin’s dam is the top-class Romanee Conti (NZ) (Sir Tristram), who is a three-quarter sister to the Group 1 winner and star broodmare Grand Echezeaux (NZ) (Zabeel), along with stakes winner and producer Our Echezeaux (NZ) (Zabeel).
