Mosh tunes in at Geelong
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.
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.
