FEATURE RACE COMMENT
1968 NZ OAKS
Local Lie, a pronounced favourite in the NZ Oaks, had a close call, but her performance was a first rate one. She was near the tail of a close running field for part of the way and she had to be used up to some extent to reach the front. Local Lie was shortening stride near the post but she just lasted to hold off the fast finishing Sheer Delight.
A close second to Leroy in the NZ Derby Stakes, Local Lie deserved her success, and starting from the second line made her task a more difficult one.
She completed a notable siring double for her sire, Local Light, who also sired the NZ Derby Stakes winner, Leroy.
