Joao Moreira to ride Mountain View in Derby - The daily Telegraph

JOAO Moreira will really need to live up to his nickname “The Magic Man’’ if Slow Pace is to overcome a shocking outside gate and win Saturday’s $3 million Doncaster Mile.

Moreira is widely regarded as the best jockey on the planet, but any hopes of making an immediate impression during his The Championships cameo were dealt a blow after Slow Pace drew barrier 22.

To make matters worse, Moreira’s ATC Australian Derby pick-up ride, Mountain View, also came up with the miserable gate 18.

Moreira, the baby-faced Brazilian who has rocketed up the Hong Kong premiership ladder to challenge Aussie Zac Purton, didn’t need reminding about Slow Pace’s tough task.

“We will need a bit of luck and the barrier makes it difficult, but that’s what we’ve been given,’’ Moreira said last night.

“I’m going into the race with as much hope as I can.”

Slow Pace’s trainer Kris Lees added: “It gives you confidence with a bloke like him, and the one thing about Joao is he’s proven himself all over the world. There is no better ­opposition he meets on Saturday, our riders here are the best in the world, but it’s a pleasure to have him.

“He’s a thorough gentleman and a true professional.’’

Moreira is no stranger to Aussie punters after he teamed up with Nathan Tinkler’s Trusting to win the Chelmsford Stakes and Hill Stakes in 2011.

The 29-year-old Moreira would love to pinch a big race during his hit-and-run trip to Randwick, but said he was just as focused on a maiden Hong Kong title. Moreira dominated Singapore before he was lured over to the rich Asian racing mecca last spring.

“I think it will be very interesting for Hong Kong racing, just who wins,’’ Moreira told The Daily Telegraph. “I know I have my chance, Zac has his chance, but you never know what is around the corner.

“I suppose this is what the Hong Kong Jockey Club wanted, to bring in new jockeys and try to make a premiership even more competitive, and not have one jockey always winning. There are a few jockeys who have a chance, and they’re all pushing hard to make the races even more competitive.’’

If Moreira isn’t the best hoop in the world, we asked him who was. He said his favourite was Frenchman Olivier Peslier, while he had huge ­respect for several jockeys, including Kiwi James McDonald and Craig Williams, who will ride Dear Demi and Ninth Legion respectively in ­Saturday’s Doncaster.

Slow Pace is a former French stayer who made his Aussie debut in the Newcastle Newmarket when third last month.

Lees said of Slow Pace’s hopes in Doncaster, for which he is $17 with TAB Fixed Odds: “When he ran well in the Newmarket first-up, we thought the Doncaster was the way to go.

“If we had given him another tun in between he would have been looking for further because he is a genuine 2000m to 2400m horse.

“I think he’ll acquit himself well, and he needs a wet track to come into it.’’

Trainer John Sargent said of ­Moreira’s appointment on Mountain View in the Derby: “Joao is about the best you can get. The horse has barrier 18, but I’ve seen Joao sit three wide on horses, and they still run for him.’’

Queen Of Kariba one to watch – Wyong - By: Tara Madgwick
04 Apr 2014
What's going on? For two days running we've seen $10,000 yearlings by champion sires come out and win like gazelles!.

These horses are supposed to be camels, not gazelles!

Lonhro
Lonhro
Yesterday it was Forbidden Jewel (Click here for her story) and today we saw Lonhro filly Queen of Kariba start favourite and thrash a big field of 14 at Wyong in a 1200 metre juvenile maiden to win by four lengths.

If you thought his might be a field of easy beats, think again!

Down the track in second place was Group I ATC Rosehill Guineas winner Criterion's half-brother Outroar, while even further back in the field was Snow White, the Darley home bred full sister to Champion 2YO Pierro, not to mention a bit further back  the Group I winner Perfectly Ready's brother Duccio.

The John Sargent trained two year-old could not have been more impressive and Queen of Kariba will be winning her share of much better races than this.

She was secured by her trainer for just $10,000 out of the Patinack Farm draft at the Magic Millions National Yearling Sale and is a half-sister to stakes-placed Intencion.

Queen of Kariba is the fifth winner from five foals to race from Group II placed Acupuncture, a half-sister by Pins to stakes-winner Anatina, who missed narrowly in the Group I ATC The Galaxy last Saturday at Rosehill.

In the lead up to the Inglis Australian Easter Yearling Sale where horses will be making millions, it's reassuring for those with a lesser budget to see 'el cheapo' yearlings by the good sires can still be winners!

Oaks Winner Not Far Away - www.racingandsports.com.au
27 Mar 2014

VRC Oaks winner Kirramosa is only three weeks away from returning to work after having a bone chip removed late last year.

The John Sargent-trained runner was outstanding throughout the spring also taking out the Group 2 Wakeful Stakes prior to her Oaks success.

Kirramosa Horseform proved too good for Zanbagh Horseform on that occasion who has since come out and won the Group 3 Keith Nolan Classic and remains the $3.50 favourite for the ATC Australian Oaks next month.

Sargent said the three-year-old filly has put on 65kg whilst in the paddock and will not return until the spring with the Caulfield Cup being the main aim.

Sargent Mounting Strong Challenge For Sydney Classics

NZ Oaks winner Miss Mossman will head to Sydney in a bid to complete a rare classic treble for her tran-Tasman trainer John Sargent.

Sargent is on a classic roll and says he isn’t finished yet with confirmation that Miss Mossman will join his sydney stable after her classic win at Trentha,m last Saturday in the G1 NZ Oaks.

Sargent, now well established in Sydney, won his first G1 race in Australia last spring when he prepared Kirramosa Horseform to win the G1 VRC Oaks at Flemingtonin the spring.

Miss Mossfun has been trained out of his Matamata stable in NZ run by Hayden Allen and she will now be sent to Sydney for the $1 million ATC Oaks at Randwick on April 19, taking the place of Kirramosa who was ruld out of th autumn by an injury in December.

“We’ll fly her over this week and get her into the system,” Sargent said. “She’ll go to the Vinery Stakes and then on to the Oaks.

Sargent said Miss Mossfun will have a new rider in Sydney to replace her Oak rider Jonathon Parkes.

“We’re working on an Australian rider as Jonathon hasn’t ridden in Sydney before, but there’s no doubt he’ll be up to it in time – he’s a very good jockey," Sargent said.

The Sargent stable is set to play a big hand in the classic racs at The Championships are a pair of his recent three-year-old winners who hold nominations for the $2 million Australian Derby on April 12 performed well in trials at Randwick on MOnday monring.

Mr One Eleven Horseform and the well-related Mountain View Horseform showed they were on track to the derby when they were successful in their respective 1200m heats.

“They’re both Derby-bound and Mr One Eleven goes to the Rosehill Guineas in two weeks’ time and Mountain View will run next at Randwick in a three-year-old staying race,” Sargent said.

“He’s got the pedigree, but I’m just not quite sure about the trip and sometimes he can race a bit fiercely.”

The winner of two races, the New Zealand-bred son of High Chaparral was a $200,000 Karaka purchase.

He is a half-brother to the former champion sprinter Gee I Jane and to the dam of the Group One winners Katie Lee and the Sargent-trained Banchee.

John Sargent is on twin missions. The more pressing yesterday was fixing up a hangover.

A much more profitable second mission is to win the Australian Oaks with Miss Mossman.

Sargent travelled from his Sydney base to be at Trentham on Saturday to see the stable win the $300,000 Wellfield New Zealand Oaks with Miss Mossman.

But it wasn't all beer and skittles - well, certainly not skittles. Sargent made a bad blue.

"I booked a flight from Wellington back to Sydney that required me to be at the airport at 4.30 this morning. Boy, was that a mistake, we were still celebrating at 3.30.

"I'm in my office here in Sydney working out the programmes for the next week and I swear I'm doing them with my eyes closed," he said yesterday.

When he was able to put his hangover to one side, Sargent became excited about the prospect of winning the Oaks in Sydney with Miss Mossman.

A couple of years ago, Sargent won the Queensland Oaks with Quintessential and last November won the Victoria Oaks at the Melbourne Cup meeting with the Alamosa filly Kirramosa.

"Now with the Oaks in New Zealand in the bag if I can win the Oaks here in Sydney that would be something of a record. It's certainly never been done before."

Given timing is one of the all important elements of the racing game, there is the sense of the moment about Miss Mossman.

Even if it relies in part on hindsight, there was a lot to admire about the final 100m of Miss Mossman's second to Oaks favourite Miss Selby at Hastings in her final lead-up. It showed clear staying ability and Saturday's 2500m was ideal.

"She is peaking at exactly the right time," says Sargent.

"The owners have yet to make the final decision about the trip, but I'm confident she'll be coming here and I'd look at running her in the Arrowfield as an Oaks lead-up.

"Obviously Donna's [Logan] filly [Rising Romance] is going to be tough to topple, but our filly has earned a crack at Randwick."

Miss Mossman is owned by veteran racing identity Bruce Clothier, whose blue, yellow and black colours have graced the New Zealand turf for more than half a century, many of the horses carrying them prepared by Jim Gibbs. Clothier races the filly with his seven sons.

"Bruce used to breed a few of them then realised that has become tough and now buys one every year to have them coming through," said Sargent.

"I bought this filly for Bruce for $26,000 out of the Westbury draft."

The last time Clothier's colours were successful at Trentham was when he won the Anniversary Handicap in 1959.

Sargent says he is steadily perfecting his Australian operation to best tackle what he says is Australia's toughest racing opposition in Sydney.

"I've got 26 horses, because that's the number of boxes I've got at the moment and I'm waiting for more to come up, which is always the issue here. To be competitive at the top level you have to have a team of 50 horses - that's my aim.

"At the moment, a lot of my horses are provincial grade and you need good-quality stock here. I'm gradually evolving my team and like everyone before me has found, that takes time."

Sargent was keen to place a decent slice of the credit for the group one victory with his New Zealand training partner Hayden Allen.

"I don't get back to New Zealand too often so Hayden has done a lot of the work."

Winning rider Johnathon Parkes had his thrill moderated somewhat when stewards relieved him of $1000 for excessive use of the whip on Miss Mossman.

Miss Mossman (NZ) Stays Strong in NZ Oaks - www.nzb.co.nz
17 Mar 2014An upset was caused by Miss Mossman (NZ) (Mossman) in the Group 1 $300,000 Wellfield New Zealand Oaks (2400m) at Trentham with punters letting the filly start at $24.50 with the TAB.

Trainer John Sargent, in partnership with Hayden Allen in New Zealand, picked up his second Oaks victory of the season following the Group 1 VRC Oaks win by fellow Karaka graduate Kirramosa (NZ) (Alamosa).

The daughter of Mossman carried solid form entering the race having finished second behind race-favourite Miss Selby (NZ) (O’Reilly) in the Group 3 Lowland Stakes at her previous start and had competed against the best fillies throughout the season.

Jockey Johnathon Parkes positioned Miss Mossman perfectly early in the running over the 2400m staying distance, placing her fifth on the rail with Miss Selby on her outside. Parkes was able to get a jump on Miss Selby around the corner and sprinted to the lead halfway down the straight.

There was no catching the Karaka Select Sale graduate as she ran out the full 2400m strongly to win by 3.5 lengths at the line ahead of Miss Selby in second and Rock Diva (NZ) (Lucky Unicorn) in third.

“It was a fantastic win,” stated Sargent. “Her last run in the Lowland Stakes showed that she was hitting the line hard over the last 200m so I wasn’t too worried about the distance, I was more worried about getting a good run in the race, which she did and hit the line very strongly.

“Earlier on we thought she was bred to go over shorter distances but as we stepped her up over a mile and further in her work she showed the further she goes the better she gets.

“We are just having a talk with the owners now about whether she goes over to Australia for the Group 1 AJC Oaks in a month’s time.

“That maiden race at Matamata last year was phenomenal, the winner was Kirramosa, the second horse was Puccini and she was third at her first start. It does show you how they can keep going up.

“She wasn’t an expensive buy from Westbury Stud but the Mossman’s are doing well in Australia, he is a very promising sire. His progeny either sprint of stay and she has gone the staying way being out of a Danehill mare, a very good broodmare sire.”

Saturday’s Group 1 victory was the third success in Miss Mossman’s career from 19 starts for owners RBC Racing, earning them $221,740 in prizemoney. Sargent purchased the filly at the 2012 Karaka Select Sale for just $25,000 from Westbury Stud.

Bred by Gerry Harvey, Miss Mossman is by Vinery Stud sire Mossman, the sire of three Group 1 winners now. She is out of Dane Promise (Danehill) and is the fourth winner from the mare who is from the family of Group 1 Australian Derby winner Ivory’s Best (Best Western).

Miss Mossman earned 12 points in the final leg of the New Zealand Bloodstock Filly of the Year Series, taking her total to 15 points. Miss Selby collected 7 points for finishing second and Rock Diva earned her first points in the Series as she collected 3.5 points for third.

Miss Selby was the only horse that had a chance to overtake Series leader Costa Viva (Encosta de Lago), who did not compete in the Group 1 Oaks, but her brave second was not enough to catch the Te Akau Racing gallop who won the Series on 20.5 points, 1.5 points clear of Miss Selby on 19 points.

Double Oaks delight for Sargent - By Racing Desk
16 Mar 2014

John Sargent’s faith in Miss Mossman and jockey Johnathon Parkes earned the ultimate reward at Trentham where the trans-Tasman trainer collected his second Oaks victory of the season.Miss Mossman

The Randwick-based trainer celebrated a spring carnival success with Kirramosa in the Gr.1 VRC Oaks at Flemington and he was trackside at Wellington on Saturday to cheer home Miss Mossman in the Gr.1 Wellfield New Zealand Oaks.

“It was a fantastic ride by Johnathon and I made the call to the owners to put him on – he rides on a long rein and that suits the stayers,” Sargent said.

His Matamata operation is run under the guiding hand of Hayden Allen, whose input was duly acknowledged by Sargent.

“A great job’s been done by Hayden and all the staff and it’s a big thrill to get a Group One result. We won one in Victoria and now this one is out of this world.

“We were always confident this filly would stay and she’s finished off her races well and she got carted out wide in the Lowland Stakes.”

Miss Mossman closed well to finish runner-up to the Oaks favourite Miss Selby at Hastings and she comprehensively reversed that result on Saturday.

She settled three back on the inner and had no hesitation in attacking a rails run in the straight to kick clear and romp home by three and a-half lengths. Rock Diva ran on from the back without threatening for a distant third.

“I was able to get to the fence and she pulled a bit down the back and then came back to me,” Parkes said. “We got a nice break in the straight and it was all over.”

The 25-year-old is enjoying his best-ever season with 75 winners and last October he combined with Ransomed for the first Group One success of his career in the Spring Classic at Hastings.

Miss Mossman was purchased at Karaka in 2012 by Sargent for $25,000 from the Select Sale draft of Westbury Stud, who also bred and sold Saturday’s two-year-old winner Passing Shot.

Oaks double too good to Miss - Sunday Star Times
16 Mar 2014Oaks double too good to Miss

Photo: Cameron Burnell/Fairfax NZ
Saluting Sarge: Johnathon Parkes celebrates his Oaks win on Miss Mossman yesterday. The Wanganui rider gave the John Sargent-trained filly a perfect run for one of his biggest wins as a jockey.JOHN SARGENT is your Oaks man.
The trans-Tasman trainer completed a trans- Tasman Oaks double at Trentham yesterday.
Sargent produced Miss Mossman to win the $300,000 New Zealand Oaks (2400m) at Trentham, four months after Kirramosa won the Victoria Oaks at Flemington.
Sargent has stables at both Matamata and Randwick in Sydney, with 25 horses in each stable.
The Matamata operation is run by Sargent’s training partner, Hayden Allen, with Sargent based in Sydney.
‘‘ Hayden and the team have done a great job with this filly [ Miss Mossman],’’ Sargent, who made the trip from Sydney to watch the race.
‘‘She has just got stronger and stronger and has peaked at the right time.’’
Miss Mossman, who was having her 19th start, was the most seasoned runner in the Oaks field.
The Mossman filly, who paid $21 yesterday, won once from eight starts as a juvenile and had recorded one win from 10 earlier attempts this term.
However, her three previous runs had probably been the best of her career.
She won a rating 65 1560m at Rotorua, before finishing fifth in the Group II Sir Tristram Classic (2000m) and second to Miss Selby in the Group III Lowland Stakes (2100m) at Hastings.
She hit the line well at Hastings, though few punters expected her to turn the tables on Lowland winner Miss Selby, who started favourite yesterday.
However, Miss Mossman left no excuses for her Oaks rivals, clearly outstaying the opposition.
She was given a soft run on the inner by Johnathon Parkes, led early in the straight and was never seriously threatened, winning by more than three lengths.
The minor placegetters came in at intervals, with Miss Selby comfortably holding second ahead of second favourite Rock Diva, with Chop Chop and Moozoon next.
Rock Diva was six lengths from the winner and Moozoon was 10 lengths away.
The Oaks was the second major victory for Parkes this term, after the Waverley rider recorded his first Group I win in the Spring Classic on Ransomed at Hastings in October.
‘‘ We were keen to Johnathon,’’ Sargent said.

‘‘He rides with a long rein and suits stayers.’’ Miss Mossman settled well as Include, who would not settle, set a strong pace in front. ‘‘She got a bit keen when the tempo slowed but came back to me pretty quickly,’’ Parkes said.
‘‘She was still travelling on the turn and I thought that if I got a bit of a break on them, that she would be hard to run down.’’
Miss Selby battled well ond.
Miss Mossman is raced by Matamata owner Bruce Clothier and five of his sons. Clothier has raced horses for decades and won an Easter Handicap with Oregon Power.

Allen celebrates first Group One success in Oaks - By Wally O'Hearn (The informant)
16 Mar 2014
Miss Mossman (Johnathon Parkes) in total control at the end of today's Wellfield NZ Oaks at Trentham.

Allen is in his first season of training and runs the Matamata arm of the stable while Sargent is busy building up the Sydney base, which last November produced the Gr. 1 VRC Oaks winner Kirramosa.

“To win one Oaks in Australia and now to win one in New Zealand is out of this world,” said Sargent, who made a special trip back for the Trentham feature.

“It was a fantastic ride by Johnathon Parkes and a fantastic job by Hayden (Allen) and Lou (Matamata office manager Lou Weatherley) and all the staff back at Matamata. It’s been a team effort.”

While Sargent was at Trentham, Allen was at his home in Matamata watching the televised coverage of his greatest moment in racing.

“I had to be here to ride work,” said Allen. “I think the neighbours might have heard me shouting at the TV.

“It’s a great thrill to win a Group One. My other wins in partnership have been minor races. Most of the good ones go on to Sarge’s stable in Sydney or get sold.

“I’m lucky I’ve been able to hold on to this one.”

A $25,000 from the National Yearling Sales, Miss Mossman is raced by Matamata’s Bruce Clothier, under the RBC Racing banner, and was a late entry into the Oaks after her second behind Miss Selby in the Gr. 3 Little Avondale Lowland Stakes at Hastings on March 1.

“I ride her every day in her work and she’s a filly with a high cruising speed that can kick off that,” said Allen. “She looked like she was going to stay when she ran at Te Rapa in the Sir Tristram Fillies Classic. She ran fifth that day and it was a good run.”

Once the decision was made to make the late payment for the NZ Oaks, a rider had to be confirmed for Miss Mossman and that’s when Sargent suggested Parkes, even though he hadn’t ridden the filly before.

“I made the call to the owners to put Johnathon on,” said Sargent. ”He rides on a long rein and that suits the stayers.”

Parkes bounced Miss Mossman out from her handy draw and had her fifth as the southern filly Include raced to the front and refused to settle in the early stages, despite the efforts of rider Chris Johnson.

Include was clear with 1800 metres to run then started to come back for Johnson down the back straight at which point Far Fetched, who had been trapped three wide, moved into second ahead of Moozoon, Miss Selby and Miss Mossman.

Parkes started to push Miss Mossman forward coming to the home turn and had her challenging for the lead on straightening. Miss Mossman then claimed the lead with 400 metres to go and as Parkes put the pedal to the floor she slipped clear.

Halfway down the home straight it was obvious Miss Mossman had the situation under control and she went to the line three and a half lengths clear of Miss Selby, who tried hard, while Rock Diva, after being well back early and running on solidly at the 200 metres, wound up third, two and a half lengths further afield.

Chop Chop looked a chance of paying a dividend when making her bid on the inner with 300 metres to run but she came to the end of her run to finish fourth ahead of Moozoon, Hot Rod, Sports Illustrated and Include.

The win was the second Group One triumph for Parkes, who celebrated his first major win last October when taking the Turks Spring Classic on Ransomed.
