Aust-Bred Mr Big Wins Singapore Golden Horseshoe
Former shuttler Elusive Quality (Gone West-Touch Of Greatness, by Hero's Honor) added a juvenile stakes-success when unbeaten Australian-bred gelding Mr Big (Elusive Quality-Basmaat, by Danehill) scored a 0.3-lengths victory in the S$325,000 (A$260,000) Gr2 Aushorse Golden Horseshoe (1200m) for 2YOs at Kranji. Mr Big (ridden by Australian jockey Danny Beasley for Australian trainer Michael Freedman) defeated favoured Australian-bred colt Dark Matter (Stratum-Loving New, by Choctaw Ridge) & fellow Australian-bred gelding Awakened (Barely A Moment-Princess Delight, by Agnes World). Mr Big (a $21,000 yearling consigned by Yarraman Park as agent at the 2010 Magic Millions Summer Sale) took his record to 2 wins from 2 starts for S$264,807 (A$212,000) earnings.
