Frozen Asset has big win

Deniliquin Pastoral Times - - LOCAL CLASSIES - with JIM ZEALLEY

A photo-fin­ish de­feat at Ber­ri­gan had a happy se­quel when Frozen Asset won at Wodonga on Mon­day.

The Al­bury mare went down by a nose to Si­do­nia Miss in the Ber­ri­gan Bench­mark 55, al­low­ing her to con­test the Wodonga Maiden Plate (2050m).

Frozen Asset ($5.50) rid­den by Cameron Quilty de­feated Joseph by a length with Ca Plane third.

Trainer Mar­tin Stein de­scribed the win­ner as a good gutsy mare whose record now stands at 14 starts, one win, one sec­ond and three third.

‘‘We were beaten in a $3000 race at Ber­ri­gan and now we were able to win a $22,000 race,’’ the happy trainer said.

The Maiden Three Year-Old (1100m) pro­duced a close fin­ish with the Ciaron Ma­her trained first starter Stylish Mis­sile ($3.40) rid­den by Linda Meech run­ning down Liv­ing Doll ($3 fav) to score by a short half head.

Dar­ren Weir pro­duced third placed Cap­tain Harry and The Gat­ting Ball (fourth).

Well named The Gat­ting Ball (Hard SpunArt Of De­cep­tion) was hav­ing his first start and fin­ished the race off quite well.

Trainer Brent Stan­ley and jock­eys Jamie Mott and Michael Walker landed win­ning dou­bles.

Stan­ley and Walker joined forces to win with two favourites, Mis­sion Vi­sion and Rock Of Ma­hal.

Mis­sion Vi­sion sur­vived a protest from Best Man rid­den by Mott in the Maiden (1590m).

Wagga Gold Cup win­ner Stam­pede is set to build on an al­ready im­pres­sive record fol­low­ing a first-up win at Moonee Val­ley on Sat­ur­day.

Stam­pede was backed from $6 to start $4.20 favourite in the Craig Opie Cup (1600m) and his sup­port­ers had no cause for con­cern at any stage.

‘‘A very classy horse,’’ jockey Beau Mertens said af­ter his mount strolled in by 2 1⁄4 lengths.

Stam­pede won at Wagga in May de­feat­ing Life Less Or­di­nary and was spelled af­ter win­ning Doomben Group 3 (2000m).

Gai Water­house and Adrian Bott train the High Cha­parral five year-old whose 10 starts have yielded six wins, three sec­onds and a fourth.

Bon­neval was an­other im­pres­sive Moonee Val­ley win­ner and clearly top se­lec­tion for the Caulfield Cup at this stage.

Fol­low - Hart­nell: Placed in Cox Plate an Mel­bourne Cup last spring and re­turned with Caulfield win over 1400m.

Com­ing win­ners: Booker was hav­ing only her third start when she re­sumed with sec­ond to un­beaten colt Mer­chant Navy at Caulfield.

Merovee, a colt by Frankel, hit the line strongly for Rand­wick sec­ond.

Foun­da­tion, an im­ported stayer, can im­prove close-up eighth at Moonee Val­ley.
