THE CLARK BARRON-trained Southern Pursuit furthered the fine start Panspacificflight has made as a sire in New Zealand when he qualified at the Invercargill trials on 08 April 2015.
The three-year-old gelding became Panspacificflight’s 19th qualifier from a first crop of just 23 live foals — a startling 82 per cent. It’s understood that at least two of the four horses not qualified have died.
Clark went on to win on debut with Southern Pursuit at Gore on 27 April.
