Massive effort by Karalino for fourth in the NZ Oaks
Following her big run for second to stable-mate Communique (Redwood) in the Sunline Vase (Gr. 3, 2100m), Karalino (3 f Zacinto – Tawny Run, by Runyon) produced a terrific effort for fourth in the $400,000 New Zealand Oaks (Gr. 1, 2400m) last Saturday at Trentham.
Trained by Stephen Autridge and ridden by Johnathan Parkes, she worked in the early stages to take up a handy position on the inner and found again on straightening to finish in a dominant group of four at the line.
