Moccasin Bend Wins Belgravia Stakes

Monday, 20th October 2008

Mungrup Stud stallion Eternity Range (Majestic Light-Northern Eternity, by Northern Dancer) added a black-type success when daughter Moccasin Bend (Eternity Range-True Surrender, by Poliuto) made it 3 wins from her past 4 starts by snatching victory against her male rivals in a 3-way photo-finish to the $75,000 Listed Belgravia Stakes (1200m) for 3YOs at Ascot. Moccasin Bend (ridden by Jason Whiting for trainer Lou Luciani) scored by a head from equal top-weighted gelding Grand Nirvana (Scenic-Paradise Park, by Bletchley Park) with a further short-neck to fellow equal top-weighted gelding Sheenasaidgrey (Verglas-Classic Lady, by Raveneaux). Moccasin Bend (a $45,000 yearling at the 2007 Magic Millions Perth Premier Sale) now has 3 wins & 3 placings from 6 starts for $119,675 earnings.
