Great Shot Wins Listed Belmont Guineas

Monday, 27th June 2016

At Belmont in Western Australia, Eliza Park's Gr1 Galaxy-winning stallion Magnus (Flying Spur-Scandinavia, by Snippets) added a black-type success when 3YO gelding Great Shot (Magnus-Satin Covers, by Dr Grace) scored a front-running 4.25-length win for trainer Rhys Radford in the $100,000 Listed Belmont Guineas (1600m) for 3YOs, over 3YO filly Showy Chloe (Alfred Nobel-Special Kiseki, by Special Bond) & fellow 3YO gelding Universal Law (Beneteau-Simply Wicked, by Scenic). Great Shot, who was a $31,000 purchase by Francis Edwards at the 2014 Magic Millions Perth Yearling Sale from the draft of Scenic Lodge, boosted his impressive strike rate to 5 wins and 2 placings from 7 starts for $226,550 earnings. From a daughter of Gr1 Orlando Wines (now known as the Gr1 Coolmore Classic) winner Satin Sand, Great Shot is a three-quarter brother to Melbourne stakes winning mare Gawne. He is also a half brother to the dam of Casino Dancer, a multiple Group winner also sold by Magic Millions.
