Mongolian Wolf Howls In Packer Plate

By Brad Gray

Mongolian Wolf had only been with Darren Weir for two weeks but the results were instant for his new owners with the ex-Kiwi claiming the Group Three Mostyn Cooper Frank Packer Plate (2000m).

In a further boost to the staying New Zealand three-year-old form, Mongolian Wolf had previously run third to Gingernuts in the Avondale Guineas before failing in the NZ Derby.

Brenton Avdulla was travelling sweetly son of Pluck and although he made hard work of it in the end, he proved too strong for Veladero.

“He is a lovely horse and I was always confident I was on the right horse and I had a perfect run in transit,” Avdulla said.

“I got out to the middle (of the track) and didn’t really want to be there but he is a nice horse and I am sure he is on for a big prep in Queensland.

“You are full of confidence when riding a Darren Weir-trained horse and I am very close with Australian Bloodstock, they have taken me all over the world.”

Mongolian Wolf travelled sweetly throughout

Weir deflected the credit to former co-trainers Murray Baker and Andrew Forsman for sending the Queensland Derby-bound three-year-old across ditch is such terrific order.

“I can’t take all the credit there. Murray Baker had him before me so big thanks to Murray for the order that the horse came over to me in,” Weir said.

“The last 300m the horse was coming under a bit pressure and wanting to lay out but I’m sure with that run under his belt that problem will come right. He was a beautiful sound horse when he turned up so I hope he stays that way.”
