3y/o Shalaa Gelding, Moorestown (in some familiar colours!) took out his maiden win at Kembla Grange on 10 December 2022 in the 1200 metre race, under the guidance of Jeff Penza.
Moorestown showed great speed after pinging from the barriers. He was encouraged by Jeff to keep his position and was eventually able to cross and put himself in a leading position.
Moorestown didnt get an easy lead in front. Good Once crept up on his outside and the two drew away from the trailers leading up to the turn into the home straight.
Down the straight, Jeff stuck tight to the inside rail and it was a ding dong battle down the straight between Moorestown and Good Once. It surely was a nail biting finish to watch, but Moorestown kept finding and lifted to draw clear of Good Once and secured his Maiden win from just his third race start.
Big congratulations to his owners. We think you have a lovely racehorse and are looking forward to what his racing career has in store for him.
Thanks always to my staff and also to Jeff for another brilliant ride.
