Mahsoob Wins Listed Wolferton Handicap

Monday, 22nd June 2015

At Royal Ascot in the UK, exciting 4YO entire Mahsoob (Dansili-Mooakada, by Montjeu) has some lofty targets in his sights after scoring by 0.5-length for trainer John Gosden in the Listed Wolferton Handicap (10 furlongs) for 3YO+, over 5YO gelding Sennockian Star (Rock of Gibraltar-Chorist, by Pivotal) & 4YO gelding Fire Fighting (Soldier of Fortune-Savoie, by Anabaa). Mahsoob maintained his unbeaten record taking his record to 4 wins from 4 starts for £67,713 earnings. The Sheikh Hamdan Al Maktoum-owned Mahsoon will now be aimed at races such as the Gr1 Coral-Eclipse and Gr1 King George VI And Queen Elizabeth Diamond Stakes. "It is a short straight here and he's still inexperienced, it wasn't long ago he was winning his maiden at Wolverhampton as he was a late three-year-old," said Gosden. "This was a Listed Handicap so we'll have to step up into Group company now."
