Neeson Wins Premiere Stakes

Tuesday, 4th October 2011

Gr1-winning & 4-time Gr1-placed Vinery Stud stallion Mossman (Success Express-Lichen Lady, by Twig Moss) added a group success when 5YO gelding Neeson (Mossman-Favorite Actress, by Don't Forget Me) scored a 2.5-lengths victory in the $200,000 weight-for-age Gr2 Premiere Stakes (1200m) at Randwick. Neeson (ridden by Michael Rodd for trainer Joe Pride) defeated 5YO mare Hurtle Myrtle (Dane Shadow-Ravenswood, by Woodman) & favoured 5YO entire Love Conquers All (Mossman-She's A Meanie, by Prince Salieri). Neeson (passed-in for $65,000 on a $70,000 reserve when consigned by Monmarc Stud as a yearling at the 2008 Inglis Easter Sale in Sydney) took his record to 8 wins (also including 2010’s Gr3 Tattersalls Club Tramway Handicap over 1400m at Randwick, Listed Hawkesbury Guineas over 1400m & Listed Darby Munro Stakes over 1200m at Rosehill) & 6 placings (including August’s Listed Show County Quality over 1200m at Warwick Farm, plus 2010’s Gr3 South Pacific Classic over 1400m at Randwick) from 22 starts for $634,100 earnings.
