Choisir & Gibraltar Lead 1st Season Betting

Thursday, 8th March 2007

Coolmore shuttler Rock Of Gibraltar (Danehill-Offshore Boom, by Be My Guest) has moved to 2nd on Sportingbet Australia's market after hitting the lead on the table of 1st Season Sires by individual winners. Rock Of Gibraltar boasts 5 individual winners from 16 runners, resulting in his price shortening to clear 2nd favourite at $4.40 behind fellow Coolmore sire Choisir (Danehill Dancer-Great Selection, by Lunchtime) at $2.80 with 4 winners. Among the longer-priced contenders who also boast 4 winners are: former Arrowfield Stud shuttler Orientate (Mt Livermore-Dream Team, by Cox's Ridge) at $26 whose total comes from only 7 runners; ill-fated Craiglea Stud sire Moon Rocket (Zabeel-Skyrocket, by Danehill) at $51; & European 1st Season sire sensation & Chatswood Stud shuttler Invincible Spirit (Green Desert-Rafha, by Kris) at $41.
