7th Aust Winner For Freshman Sire Al Maher
Emirates Park Stud's Gr1-winning 1st-crop sire Al Maher (Danehill-Show Dancing, by Don't Say Halo) recorded his 7th winner yesterday when 2YO colt Cosmocrat (Al Maher-Cosmic Beam, by Geiger Counter) was 2nd across-the-line on debut over 1300m at Cranbourne in Victoria for trainer Mick Price, but then stewards awarded him victory following interference in the straight. Cosmocrat was a $300,000 yearling consigned from Swettenham Stud at the 2008 Inglis Premier Sale in Melbourne. His sire Al Maher (a 3/4-brother to flagship Arrowfield Stud stallion & former Australian Champion Sire Redoute's Choice) will stand the 2009 season at Emirates Park for $24,200.
