Neeson Wins Hawkesbury Guineas

Monday, 3rd May 2010

Gr1-winning & 4-time Gr1-placed Vinery Stud stallion Mossman (Success Express-Lichen Lady, by Twig Moss) added a black-type success when favoured gelding Neeson (Mossman-Favorite Actress, by Don't Forget Me) notched his 4th win from his last 5 starts with a 4.5-lengths victory in the $100,000 Listed Hawkesbury Guineas (1400m) for 3YOs at Hawkesbury in NSW. Neeson (ridden by Peter Robl for trainer Joseph Pride) defeated fellow colt Khas Kura (Lonhro-Nepal, by Quest For Fame) & the gelding All Legal (Al Maher-Azardi, by Desert Prince). Neeson (passed-in for $65,000 as a yearling at the 2009 Inglis Easter Sale in Sydney) took his record to 6 wins (also including the Listed Darby Munro Stakes over 1200m at Rosehill on April 3) & 5 placings (including last start's Gr3 South Pacific Classic over 1400m at Randwick on April 17) from 13 starts for $405,400 earnings.
