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 most significant win came as one of several longshots in the Kelt Capital Stakes in October 2009, and followed up with wins in the Zabeel Classic on Boxing Day and New Zealand Stakes in March 2010. The achievement was most notable as the three events were for the most competitive races in New Zealand that season; the distinction was the basis of being named the New Zealand Horse Of The Year for the 2009/10 season.
