Gun little horse Moss N Dale created history for Peter Gelagotis becoming his first Metropolitan Sydney winner (Dead Heat) at Royal Randwick which is something the stable has been trying to achieve for some time. With the lucrative prize money on offer and of course the opportunity to get onto a wet track the stable never hesitated to give the lightly raced son of Castledale his chance to build on what is a very nice strike rate and gave Gelagotis and apprentice Jack Martin both there maiden wins in NSW.
"This has been a dream come true to win up here in amungst the best trainers in there back yard and I am very proud of this horse , he just gives you everything and even though it was a dead heat it felt like a win and I really enjoyed sharing the victory with the Snowdens who have been not only great competitors over the years but good friends. The prize money on offer in Sydney will definately lure us back again and I will be bringing plenty more horses to Sydney to compete if Racing Victoria doesnt fix and create better opportunities into the future in relation to city prize money across the board" said Peter Gelagotis
Moss N Dale could head to Warrnambool for the 1400m Handicap however he looks like he will have a great winter and could develop into a Winter Championship contender all going well or he can keep coming to Sydney as a back up option.
