Sir Moments Wins Listed Tails Stakes Handicap
At Doomben in Brisbane, Coolmore shuttler Choisir added a black-type success when, despite hanging in the straight, 5YO gelding Sir Moments (Choisir-Colourful Moments, by Zabeel) scored by 1.3-lengths for trainer Steven O'Dea in the $100,000 Listed Tails Stakes Handicap (1630m), from fellow 4YO geldings Hopfgarten (Mossman-Black Tourmaline, by O'Reilly) & Best of the Rest (Northern Meteor-Matras, by Zabeel). Sir Moments, a $44,000 yearling consigned by Widden Stud at the 2012 Magic Millions Gold Coast Sale, took his record to 7 wins (also including the Gr2 Queensland Guineas, Listed The Daybreak Lover, Listed The Phoenix Stakes & Listed Dalrello Stakes) & 2 placings (including the Listed Phelan Ready Stakes) from 17 starts for $604,450 earnings.
