800 Happy Owners cheer Mossbeat home.
May 02, 2014
Hancox Racing No.6.Ltd’s first runner MOSSBEAT stormed home from near last to win the 1000m 2YO race on the first day of the Warrnambool carnival.
It was a great pay day for the Mossman filly who earned over $58,000 in prizemoney and Super Vobis bonus money for her effort on the heavy track.
Hancox Bloodstock bought Mossbeat for $26,000 at the Inglis Premier II Sale in 2013 and packaged her up with five other youngsters for their sixth 800 share Racing Club, Hancox Racing No.6.Ltd.
She is the first runner for this group and was placed at Sandown and Caulfield at her previous two outings. Robbie Griffiths has done a great job with the filly and veteran jockey Ivan Culliver has ridden her well at all her starts.
The group are looking forward to plenty of racing action with Mossbeat and their other 2YO’s which include a good style of Show A Heart colt called Heart Of Thunder in Brisbane with Barry Baldwin, a smart looking half brother to Villa Verde named Free On Saturday trained by Greg Eurell at Cranbourne, a staying type by Blevic, called Full Swing who is in Adelaide with David Jolly, a Magic Albert filly named Albezzera trained by the Joseph/Jones team at Canberra and Canny Henry (by Canny Lad) trained by Bjorn Baker at Warwick Farm.
This is our sixth fully subscribed 800 share Racing Club and we will probably do our next one in 2015. To do them properly and keep the communication at a really good level is very time consuming so it is basically an every other year assignment.
Hancox syndicated horses have had more than their share of success lately with BALAYEUR impressively winning at Caulfield on Easter Monday. He has a terrific first up record and again showed a great turn of foot whilst fresh to come from last on the turn and score a narrow victory. He is the highest earning son of Econsul and interestingly his full sister, Divertire, is Econsul's best performed daughter. Balayeur has now won 5 races and over $100,000 from his 30 career starts.
DIVINE REIGN is another horse to have saluted during the month of April. After testing her owners patience over the past twelve months she is now racing consistently well and Friday's win on the synthetic track at Geelong was her 2nd for the campaign. The 4yo Flying Spur mare was strong at the end of the 2000m race and her connections should continue to reap the rewards of their patience over the coming months.
HEART OF MANY at the Gold Coast Saturday.
ESTADA at Benalla on Saturday
ZERZURA and AL BADIA at the Sapphire Coast on Sunday
MISS DEL TORO at Moe on Monday.
