Mossman Adds US Gr3

Monday, 10th October 2011

Gr1-winning & 4-time Gr1-placed Vinery Stud stallion Mossman (Success Express-Lichen Lady, by Twig Moss) added a US graded-stakes success when NZ-bred 4YO entire Hoofit (Mossman-Chuckle, by Danehill) scored by a nose in the US$175,000 Gr3 Phoenix Stakes (6 furlongs on all-weather) at Keeneland. Hoofit (ridden by Edgar Prado for trainer Graham Motion) defeated fellow 4YO entire Aikenite (Yes It's True-Silverlado, by Saint Ballado) & 5YO entire Hamazing Destiny (Salt Lake-Ms Proud Destiny, by Artax). Hoofit (a NZ$60,000 yearling consigned by Shelby Park at the 2009 NZ Bloodstock Premier Sale at Karaka) took his record to 4 wins (also including 2010’s NZ Listed Bonecrusher Stakes over 1400m at Ellerslie) & 4 placings (including 2010’s NZ Listed Great Northern Champagne Stakes over 1600m at Ellerslie) from 18 starts for US$182,721 earnings.
