Dissident Brilliant in the Gr.1 NZB Memsie Stakes

Dissident Brilliant in the Gr.1 NZB Memsie Stakes


The Group 1 A$400,000 New Zealand Bloodstock Memsie Stakes uncovered a rising star when Dissident (Sebring) produced an outstanding turn of foot to claim the second Group 1 victory of his career.

.
Having won the Group 1 Randwick Guineas last season as a three-year-old, the Peter Moody trained colt stepped out for the first time as a four-year-old and blew away his older rivals.

“He has trained on very well from his three-year-old year to a four-year-old,” commented Moody. “He has shown us good improvement at home but it is always good to see them take it to the races.

“He was very dominant in his second run against the older horses, it shows how much he has trained on and what a terrific turn of foot he has.”

Kiwi Wins First International Race in South Korea

Karaka graduate El Padrino (NZ) (Mr Nancho) was the dominant winner of the S$300,000 Asia Challenge Cup on Sunday in South Korea, the first international invitation race in the country.

Travelling to South Korea from trainer Alwin Tan’s Singapore base, El Padrino became the first Singapore-based horse to win at Seoul Racecourse.

Entering the race in stellar form, the son of Mr Nancho was a decisive come-from-behind winner in the Sgp-3 Woodlands Handicap at his last start on the Polytrack at Kranji. The racing surface at Seoul was a similar sand-based track that suited the Polytrack specialist.

Stepping up to 1400m for rider David Flores, who is unbeaten on El Padrino, the six-year-old was suited to the fast early pace and cleared away from the field in the straight to win by two-lengths in a time of 1.23.8 with his trademark turn of foot on show once again.
