Sir Monashee Wins Magic Millions Sprint
Queensland-based Racetree Farm's recently purchased former Coolmore-Willowbend Stud shuttler Monashee Mountain (Danzig-Prospectors Delite, by Mr Prospector) added a timely feature success when 5YO gelding Sir Monashee (Monashee Mountain-Tres Rapide, by Paris House) improved on last year's runner-up effort with a 1-length victory in yesterday's $500,000 Magic Millions Sprint (1000m) at the Gold Coast. Sir Monashee (ridden by Jason Holder for trainer Darren Bell) defeated top-weighted & favoured 4YO entire Kaphero (Danzero-Kapchat, by Centaine) & 4YO mare Charmana Star (Skilful Star-Personal Lass, by Personal Hope). Sir Monashee (passed-in as a yearling for $18,000 at the 2005 Magic Millions Gold Coast Sale) now has 6 wins & 12 placings (including runner-up in this race last year) from 28 starts for $421,600 earnings.
