At Royal Randwick in Sydney, Gr1-winning & 4-time Gr1-placed Vinery Stud stallion Mossman (Success Express-Lichen Lady, by Twig Moss) added a Group race success when 4YO grey mare White Moss (Mossman-Pay My Bail, by Justice Prevails) showed a sparkling turn of foot to claim her maiden stakes win in the $150,000 Gr3 Nivison (1200m) for 4YO+ mares, defeating Zestful & Kinshachi. A homebred for the Esplin family, White Moss is out of the Gr2 Thoroughbred Breeders' Stakes & Gr3 Lion Red Plate winning New Zealand mare Pay My Bail and is a half-sister to Listed ATC Festival Stakes winner White Sage. Her impressive record now reads 5 wins and 1 placing from 8 starts for $213,120 in earnings. Trainer Jason Coyle said he will now sit down and find a suitable race over the Melbourne spring carnival for White Moss but admitted the best of her will not be seen until next year. "We cuddled her early in her career because she's not an overly big mare and now she's really rewarding our patience," Coyle told Sky Racing. "Through the line she's always been strong so I'm hopeful she will run a mile but you never really know until you ask them to try." Coyle added: "In the autumn there's races like the Coolmore [Gr1] but we'll see how we go. Ultimately the long-term goal is to take her to Queensland to try to get that elusive Group 1 - the Tatts Tiara."
