MOSZUR’s four-length demolition at Ipswich had David dreaming of another Queensland Oaks triumph this winter. 

Whilst there is plenty of water to go under the bridge between now and June 8th, MOSZUR turned Wednesday’s 3YO Maiden Plate (1690m) into a one-act affair and did enough to suggest she has the class and capabilities of seeing out the 2400m trip of the Oaks. 

For now, the team at Kirks Bridge Farm were able to savour a maiden victory in which Ryan Maloney played an integral part. 

Unhappy with the pace of the race at the midway point, Maloney took off on MOSZUR and it proved the winning move as the Churchill filly bounced clear in the closing stages to win eased down. 

“That was pretty special,” said David. 

“She’s bred to get into the Oaks, and Ryan said to me beforehand that he didn’t want to turn the race into a sit and sprint. She’s a stayer and as soon as he took off, I was pretty confident turning for home. 

“She’s light and fit and she’ll get over ground because she’s so economical. The owners have been wonderfully patient, so we’ll work backwards from the Oaks with her now. 

“We’ll probably space out her runs and give her a month until her next start. She doesn’t love the heat, so we’ll nurse her through the next few weeks and we’ll see the best of her when the weather cools down a bit.” 

Many congratulations to the team at Kirks Bridge Farm.
