Reigning To Win Takes Gr1 T.J.Smith
Former Coolmore shuttler King Of Kings (Sadler's Wells-Zummerudd, by Habitat) added a juvenile Gr1 triumph (& his 15th stakes-winner) when favoured gelding Reigning To Win (King Of Kings-Secret Liaisons, by TV Heart Throb) made it 3 successive wins with victory by a neck in yesterday's $500,000 Gr1 T.J.Smith Quality (1600m) for 2YOs at Eagle Farm. Despite being slowly away from barrier 12, Reigning To Win (ridden by Chris Munce for trainer John O'Shea) finished powerfully from the tail of the field to defeat fellow geldings Danleigh (Mujahid-Graceful Lily- by Dr Grace) & Carry To Glory (Carry The Flag-Anora Fair, by Appleby Fair). Reigning To Win now has 3 wins from 4 starts overall for $378,050 earnings.
