Lightly raced NZ bred Moss N Dale scored in impressive fashion at only his second start at Mornington over 1200m to score for some elated owners led by Leonard Russo of Bluegrass Bloodstock who is having a dream run with his business with plenty of winners.

"This horse has done a great job from the first day he came to Moe and has grown in confidance with every gallop and trial so he is a horse of the future with his breeding and we think he has a promising career ahead of him with the manner in which he won at Mornington" said Peter Gelagotis

Moss N Dale has been turned out for the late autumn winter campaign where he should be going through his grades based on his potential and Vlad Duric has endorsed those sentiments.
