Top effort by our Dane..
Contesting the Group One Moir Stakes on Friday night, there was clearly a lot against our Group One winner Rebel Dane – 1200m, an extremely small field, and once they jumped away from the gates and he found himself back in the field, it was always going to be hard.
But once again, he knuckled down late and flew along the inside for jockey Craig Williams to be beaten into third, a short head behind the World’s Top Rated Sprinter Lankan Rupee who was second, beaten a short head being Buffering in first.
All in all it was a very sound run considering he was coming off a seven week let up and we are looking forward to the rest of his campaign!
Congrats to trainer Gary Portelli and all involved with Rebel Dane.
