What the Horse Racing Nation is saying about Habibi...

Champion stayer and NZ star filly, Habibi has been privately acquired by George Strawbridge from her majority owner/breeders Peter and Heather Crofskey. The amount was said to be "life-changing" for the Crofskeys, and they only let her go knowing they owned her female family. Habibi set NZ a buzz by her authorative win over males in the 12F New Zealand Derby. Having never finished out of the money, she further endeared her fans with what was to be her final start in the NZ Oaks (also 12F). Despite sustaining a hindquarter muscle injury early in the race, her sheer grit and determination carried her to a strong 4th finish. Strawbridge bought her with the specific goal of Breeder's Cup. She leaves for the US on Saturday, where she will be under Graham Motion's care and training according to reports. Strawbridge can certainly sport emerging Kiwi stars having previously bought Black Mamba, Crossing The Line and Kessem Power from New Zealand. I will be personally following her US career with anticipation!

  • Buckpasser · Zxswordxz. I am not quite sure of the translation of the above for the non computer people like myself, but I thank you very much for your help. I have a feeling that the issues people experienced when the new site openned had to do with the browsers used. Thanks again. · 360 days ago ·
