Group 1-winning Champion 2YO

Vespa’s impressive juvenile season, where he never finished outside of the top three in his seven starts, saw him triumph in the Karaka Million 2YO and back up with another victory in the Group 1 Diamond Stakes, also earning him Champion 2YO of his year.

Group 1 placed at 3 and 4

Vespa followed up as a three-year-old with wins in the Group 2 Wellington Guineas, Listed Manawatu Flying Handicap and Whangarei RC Challenge Stakes, as well as running second against the older horses in the Group 1 Easter Handicap.

As a four-year-old he was runner-up in the Group 1 NRM Sprint before retiring to stud at Wellfield Lodge.
