Vosne Romanee

Vosne Romanee is a three time Group 1 winning New Zealand Horse. While being a competitive Group 1 horse earlier in his career, he rose to prominence as a seven year-old in 2009/10. His biggest win came as one of the longshots in the Kelt Capital Stakes in October 2009[1], while he followed it up with wins in the Zabeel Classic[2] on Boxing Day and New Zealand Stakes[3] in March 2010. The achievement was most notable as they were arguably the three strongest New Zealand races held that season, and makes him a strong contender for Horse of the Year honours.

Vosne Romanee is named after a wine region in France. While Buddy Lammas was successful abord him in the Kelt Capital Stakes, Opie Bosson has now become the regular rider.

Vosne Romanee is owned by Ian and Alana Smart Trust.
