Well we broke a bit of a drought in here yesterday with MR CHURCHILL winning at Pakenham.  He has been knocking on the door of a win and the step up to 1600m suited him.  Chris Symons overcame the wide draw (collecting a 10 meeting suspension in doing so) and Mr Churchill was too srtrong over the concluding stages to win by .8L.

He is another good advertisement for why one does not have to pay a lot of money to find a competitive racehorse - he cost $5500 as a yearling and many of his owners' took up a share with our unique Free Replacement policy.

MOSSBEAT will run in the GR 3 Mannerism Stakes at Caulfield tomorrow.  R9 at 6pm.  It looks a tough race but she will be as competitive as always.
