Mental Wins Daybreak Lover

Tuesday, 12th June 2012

Last season's Australian Champion Sire, former Australian Racehorse-Of-The-Year & 11-time Gr1-winning World Champion Miler Lonhro (Octagonal-Shadea, by Straight Strike) added a group success when favoured gelding Mental (Lonhro-Intrigues, by Night Shift) scored a 2.75-lengths victory in the $125,000 Listed Daybreak Lover (1600m) for 3YOs at Eagle Farm. Mental (ridden by Kerrin McEvoy for trainer Peter Snowden) defeated fellow geldings Venture On (Nothing To Lose-Echo Rose, by Prince Echo) & Double Impact (Mossman-Cornish Moss, by Barathea). Mental took his record to 6 wins (also including May's Gr3 Fred Best Classic over 1350m at Doomben) & a placing from 10 starts for $355,060 earnings.
