Rac­ing: Star mare Melody Belle, named New Zealand Horse of the Year for the sec­ond year in suc­ces­sion on Sun­day night, will be out to land her 12th group 1 victory when she con­tests the Li­va­mol Clas­sic over 2040m at Hast­ings on Satur­day.

Con­nec­tions have paid a late en­try for the Jamie Richards­trained mare for the third leg of the Hawke’s Bay triple crown, in which she will once again do bat­tle with sta­ble­mate Avan­tage.

There was just a nose sep­a­rat­ing the pair last start when Melody Belle pre­vailed in the Wind­sor Park Plate to make an in­stant im­pact upon her re­turn from an Aus­tralian cam­paign. — NZ Rac­ing Desk
