St Moritz lands Listed race

18/04/2011

The Newsells bred, St Moritz, landed the Listed Doncaster Mile Stakes on Saturday 16th April at Doncaster.

It was his second win from two runs this season for his new connections, trainer David Nicholls and owner Billy Hughes, having purchased him from the Horses in Training Sale last Autumn for 105,000gns.

Last season St Moritz gamely won the highly competitive 7f Bunbury Cup at Newmarket following a credible third in the Royal Hunt Cup at Royal Ascot.

By Medicean, St Moritz is out of the Newsells' mare Statua and is a half-brother to the consistent winner Annemasse (Anabaa).

His two-year-old half-brother by Dylan Thomas realised £90,000 at the DBS St Leger Yearling Sales when purchased by Demi O'Byrne, and his half-sister by Mount Nelson fetched 50,000gns at last year's Tattersalls December Foal Sale.
