The Offer Wins Listed Hawkesbury Rowley Mile
At Hawkesbury in Sydney, deceased dual-Derby winning stallion & former shuttler Montjeu (Sadler's Wells-Floripedes, by Top Ville) added a black-type success when 7YO Irish-bred gelding The Offer (Montjeu-Valdara, by Darshaan) scored by 1-length for trainer Gai Waterhouse in the $100,000 Listed Hawkesbury Rowley Mile (1600m) for 3YO+, over 6YO gelding Dragon Flyer (Pendragon-Ersilia, by Youthful Legs) & 6YO mare Campania (Dubai Destination-Pricey, by Flying Spur). This was a promising return to racing by The Offer who took his record to 7 wins (including the Gr1 Sydney Cup) and 5 placings from 23 starts for $1,250,692 earnings. Trainer Gai Waterhouse tweeted: "Sydney Cup winner The Offer returns to form with a devastating win. A superb start to his spring prep." The Offer is currently a $26 chance with the TAB for this year's Melbourne Cup.
