Late entry for Melody Belle


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
