Tuesday, 6th April 2010

Gr1-winning & 4-time Gr1-placed Vinery Stud stallion Mossman (Success Express-Lichen Lady, by Twig Moss) added a black-type success (& 7th individual stakes-winner) when favoured gelding Neeson (Mossman-Favorite Actress, by Don't Forget Me) notched his 3rd successive win with victory by a neck in the $150,000 Listed Darby Munro Stakes (1200m) for 3YOs at Rosehill. Neeson (ridden by Blake Shinn for trainer Joseph Pride) defeated the filly Kanzan (Commands-Cherry Lodge, by Grand Lodge) & top-weighted fellow gelding Rarefied (Commands-Subtle, by Night Shift). Neeson (passed-in for $65,000 as a yearling at the 2009 Inglis Easter Sale in Sydney) took his record to 5 wins & 4 placings from 11 starts for $313,900 earnings.
