2012 New Zealand Derby – Silent Achiever Wins

Silent Achiever has scored a magnificent victory in the 2012 New Zealand Derby, providing prolific trainer Roger James with his fifth success in the $750,000 event.

James described the three-year-old as “pure class” after the race and that class was evident for all to see in a superb run over 2400 metres.

One of three fillies in the field, jockey James McDonald held the bookmaker.com.au $2.20 favourite back nicely in the middle of the field, before exploding down the final straight.

The best three-year-old in the country now has five wins from seven starts and trainer James suggested  a trip across the Tasman could soon be on the cards.

Shuka led for most of the race but with 600 metres to go, Silent Achiever and Rock ‘n’ Pop began to move and the favourite showed she was a class above, holding off nicely and then turning it on at the business end of the race.

Rock ‘n’ Pop (second) and Carrick (third) pushed hard down the final straight but the favourite was far too good, eventually winning by a length.

The feature New Zealand race may be over but there is still plenty of action at all the tracks around Australia today.
