MISSY LONGSTOCKING HEADING FOR HISTORY
Missy Longstocking (pictured Dan Costello Racing) could be in for the biggest pay day in Queensland racing history after extending her unbeaten run in the Group Three $150,000 BJ McLachlan Stakes (1200m) at Doomben on Saturday.
The Sequalo filly, now the winner of four races from four starts, heads to the $2 million Jeep Magic Millions 2YO Classic and as well as the $1.14 million for the first placegetter she is eligible for a rich world first bonus.
Solely owned by Judith Clairs, the Liam Birchey trained Missy Longstocking is eligible for the $500,000 Magic Millions Racing Women initiative where the first 100% female owned or leased two-year-old over the line in the Classic will pocket a cool $325,000. Full story here…
It was yet another lucrative week for Lyndhurst Stud.
They had a taste of Group 2 success in Sydney thanks to All Legal saluting in the Group 2 Inglis Villiers Stakes.
The tough six-year-old gelding finished a nose ahead of Alma’s Fury to grab Saturday’s feature event for trainer Kevin Moses.
As a jockey Kevin Moses won the 1979 Villiers Stakes aboard King’s Ideal and now joins a select group to have also trained a winner of the race.
Moses purchased All Legal for $25,000 from Lyndhurst Stud as agent for TBQA member Doug Newberry (Access Bloodstock) at the 2008 Inglis Sydney Classic Yearling Sale.
