Malmoosa On Road To Grafton Country Championships

By Geoff Newling

Malmoosa returned from a freshen-up to swamp her rivals at Ipswich on Wednesday and set up a Country Championships Qualifier tilt at Grafton on Sunday week.

The four-year-old mare, a daughter of Foxwedge, surged home for a brilliant win over 1400m at Ipswich to continue her run into the Northern Rivers Racing Association’s $150,000 Country Championships Qualifier (1400m) on Sunday 11 March.

Daniel Bowen prepares her at Lismore and is delighted with his mare’s form and slashing win: “She’s come back well,” he said. “That was a very good win. She hit the line well too and can handle the good or heavy going and it looks like there could be rain around for Grafton.”

He said she has now won four for his stable after buying her at a tried sale for $14,000.

“She was a $240,000 yearling and had won a maiden in country South Australia when we bought her,” he said. “She’s just gone from strength to strength for us and I think she’s going to win a lot more races regardless of the Country Championships.”

He said the first plan of his Country Championships plan with her had “gone to perfection” when she resumed from her freshen-up with such a fine winning burst on the heavy Ipswich track.

“We’re just hoping for a bit of luck with her,” he said of the upcoming NRRA Country Championships Qualifier. “She’ll go in as one of the underdogs but nothing really stands out up here. She has also shown she will handle any type of track as well making her more adaptable."
