Trelawney Stud's 2012 NZB Premier graduate War Affair (O'Reilly x Kristique) was crowned Champion 4yo and Champion Miler at Thursday night's 2015 Singapore Racing awards.
The previous Singapore Horse of the Year War showed he was still a major force to reckon with when he won two legs of the Singapore Four-Year-Old Challenge, the Group 2 Stewards’ Cup (1400m) and the Group 1 Patron’s Bowl (1600m).
This was his second year running as Champion Miler.
Te Akau Racing’s David Ellis purchased the son of O'Reilly for $70,000, and he is now a winner of 11 stakes races in Singapore, and has earned his owners of the Warplan Racing Stable S$2,718,625 in prize money.
War Affair has had two recent trials, running third over 1000m on January 14, following a spell after injuring himself prior to the S$200,000 Jumbo Jet Trophy. He has also had a change of stable, and is now trained by kiwi ex-pat Bruce Marsh.
