6 Wins From 4 Starters For Moon Rocket
Meanwhile ill-fated Craiglea Stud sire Moon Rocket (Zabeel-Skyrocket, by Danehill) continued his winning streak when 2YO filly Yongpung (an $18,500 purchase at September's Magic Millions Horses-In-Training Sale on the Gold Coast) followed up her February debut victory over 1200m in Korea, with a 2nd Korean success last Friday (again over 1200m & again in a race for foreign-bred horses) to take her record to 2-wins-from-2-starts. As a result, Moon Rocket (who has had just 4 runners from his 1st crop so far) now boasts 6 wins from 4 starters, following the performances of his 3 Australian runners: Miss Watagan (3 wins & dual stakes-winner); Flash Bang (QTIS 2YO race winner on debut); & Moonlight Zephyr (placed in her 1st 3 starts).
