Lonhmacc scores a fighting maiden win!

Lonhmacc won the $15K Oyster Friday @ Trackside Maiden Plate today at Kilmore over 1200m.

Lonhmacc was ridden perfectly by Andrew Mallyon to score by a short head.

He jumped evenly with the field and from barrier 5, Mallyon was able to position him right behind the leading bunch.

He tracked the leaders until the turn before peeling off the leader's backs, and showed a turn of foot to put a length or two break on the field, before his condition ran out over the last 50m. But he showed tenacity to fight it out to the line and hold on for a narrow victory.

The effort was good considering it was an Open maiden field, and being first up over 1200m. He will take enormous benefit from the run.

And a big group of owners were on hand to celebrate the win.

This is the first win for our new partnership with Bluegrass Bloodstock, and we are sure there are many more to come with an exciting bunch of 3yos about to hit the track for the Spring Carnival.

Lonhmacc was superbly prepared by the Anthony Freedman Racing Stable, he is a son of the mighty Lonhro, and carrying very similar markings he was a standout in the parade ring. 

Special thanks to Will Stewart for his handling of Lonhmacc on raceday, and keeping the excited colt relaxed pre-race.
