Majestical Wins Cranbourne Cup

Monday, 13th October 2008

Dual-Derby winning Coolmore sire & former NZ Windsor Park shuttler Montjeu (Sadler's Wells-Floripedes, by Top Ville) added a black-type success when favoured 5YO gelding Majestical (Montjeu-Grosvenor's Pride, by Grosvenor) scored by a long-neck in yesterday's $150,000 Listed Cranbourne Cup (2025m) at Cranbourne in Victoria. Majestical (ridden by Craig Williams for trainer Matthew Enright) defeated 4YO gelding Barbaricus (Lion Hunter-Light Of Erin, by Palace Music) & 6YO mare Chantal Sally (Johan Cruyff-Sell The Ark, by Ark Regal). Majestical (a NZ$125,000 yearling at the 2005 NZ Bloodstock Premier Sale at Karaka) now has 6 wins & 6 placings (including last start's Listed JRA Cup over 2040m at Moonee Valley on September 27) from 21 starts for $223,240 earnings.
