MOHAATHER LANDS GREENHAM

MOHAATHER LANDS GREENHAM

Mohaather booked his place in the line up for the 2,000 Guineas with a fluent triumph in the Group 3 Greenham Stakes at Newbury on Saturday.


A neat, classy colt by Showcasing he carries the colours of Sheikh Hamdan Al Maktoum who has shared so many important successes with Marcus Tregoning down the years.
Mohaather ended his juvenile campaign with victory in the Group 3 Horris Hill Stakes at Newbury in October.
His trainer has been upbeat about his progress this spring at Whitsbury and his exciting colt justified the confidence on Saturday with a dashing run that took him into a clear lead over a furlong out.
Mohaather then showed signs of inexperience by drifting right and then left before buckling down to readily see off the late challenge of Great Scot by three quarters of a length with Urban Icon two and a quarter lengths away third. 
Tregoning revealed that the colt is one of the fastest horses he has ever trained which perhaps raises slight doubts about his ability to get a mile at Newmarket.
“But the beauty is that he settles so well in his races”, he said.
Mohaather didn’t make his racecourse debut until September as a two year old because he was a little immature and spent a month out of training in the summer back at his owner’s stud.
He has been making up for lost time ever since and though his two most recent wins have come on easy ground Tregoning says that he has such a beautiful action he has no concerns about running him on quicker going.
