Reigning To Win Takes Queensland Day Plate
Former Coolmore shuttler King Of Kings (Sadler's Wells-Zummerudd, by Habitat) added a black-type success when exciting gelding Reigning To Win (King Of Kings-Secret Liaisons, by TV Heart Throb) grabbed victory by a neck in the $100,000 Listed Queensland Day Plate (1400m) for 3YOs at Eagle Farm. Favourite Reigning To Win (ridden by Glen Boss for trainer John O'Shea) defeated the colt Raheeb (Royal Academy-Gatana, by Marauding) & fellow gelding Snort (Happy Giggle-Piglet's Gold, by Gold Carat). Ultra-consistent Reigning To Win now has 6 wins (also including 2006's Gr1 T.J.Smith Quality over 1600m, Gr2 Roman Consul Stakes over 1200m & Listed Brian Crowley Stakes over 1200m) & a runner-up (last start in the Gr3 South Pacific Classic over 1400m at Randwick on April 9) from 8 starts for $591,600 earnings.
