Mosh tunes in at Gee­long

The Weekly Advertiser Horsham - - Sport -

Wim­mera-owned and Archie Alexan­der-trained filly Mosh Mu­sic broke her maiden at Gee­long in fine style re­cently.

The three-year-old lined up for her sec­ond ca­reer start in a 1525-me­tre maiden plate.

Mosh Mu­sic, $26, with Dean Hol­land in the sad­dle, eased back to the tail of the field, and got a nice run.

The daugh­ter of Moshe con­tin­ued to travel sweetly, gath­er­ing in the lead­ers and record­ing a soft win on the post by more than a length. Mosh Mu­sic is out of Greg Baker’s handy mare Dirt Mu­sic, and is raced by him and for­mer River­side Rac­ing clients.

Mosh Mu­sic also brought up 100 winners for the Bal­larat­based Alexan­der yard, since open­ing their doors in 2014.

Tay­lor sees stars

Stawell trainer Deanne Tay­lor con­tin­ued her good run of re­cent form, when her last-start Sandown win­ner Silence The Stars con­tested a 1733-me­tre bench­mark-64 hand­i­cap race at Gee­long.

Un­der-rated jockey Billy Egan was back in the sad­dle, re­plac­ing Craig Wil­liams.

The Val­ixir five-year-old jumped well, us­ing his in­side bar­rier to find an un­con­tested lead. Silence The Stars dug in for a fight when headed by Joie De Dream, and found an­other gear to score a nar­row but gutsy win.

Me­mo­rial day

Hor­sham and Dis­trict Rac­ing Club will run its an­nual May Lad­brokes race day on Satur­day, with the fea­ture event the Dal­las Rin­toule Me­mo­rial over 1400-me­tres.

The race honours for­mer Wim­mera on-course pho­tog­ra­pher Rin­toule, who trag­i­cally passed away in March 2010. Rin­toule was highly re­garded by train­ers, jock­eys and all other rac­ing par­tic­i­pants.
