Motspur Wins Prydes Easifeed Quality Handicap

Monday, 21st May 2012

Arrowfield Stud stallion & former Australian Champion Sire Flying Spur (Danehill-Rolls, by Mr Prospector) added a black-type success when evergreen 9YO gelding Motspur (Flying Spur-Crusading Lil, by Crusader Sword) returned from a 13-weeks spell to gain the judge's decision in a 3-way photo-finish to the $120,000 Listed Prydes Easifeed Quality Handicap (1100m) at Scone. Motspur (ridden by Blake Shinn for trainer Kris Lees) scored by a long-head from favoured 4YO gelding Stratana (Stratum-Evana, by Entrepreneur) with a further short-halfhead to 4YO mare Sutton Queen (Beautiful Crown-Sutton Miss, by Youthful Legs). Motspur took his record to 12 wins (also including 2010's Listed Falvelon Quality over 1200m at Eagle Farm) & 16 placings (including February's Listed Thetote.com.au Stakes over 1200m at Launceston, plus 2011's Listed Ramornie Handicap over 1200mat Grafton & Listed Takeover Target Stakes over 1200m at Gosford, plus 2010's Listed Starlight Stakes over 1100m at Rosehill) from 50 starts for $609,760 earnings.
