Mohaather makes amends in Sussex Stakes

Showcasing colt Mohaather demonstrated a devastating turn of foot to win the Gr.1 Sussex Stakes (1600m), the feature event on day two at Goodwood.

Trained by Marcus Tregoning and ridden by Jim Crowley, the four-year-old endured a luckless run in the Gr.1 Queen Anne Stakes (1600m) at Royal Ascot – but righted the record as an impressive victor on the Downs.

Crowley had to switch out to make his challenge, but once he did Mohaather flew in the final furlong to collar pace-setter Circus Maximus and score a first Group One win.

The previously unbeaten Siskin was third, with Kameko fourth having been tight for room in the closing stages.

“He’s an absolute aeroplane,” Crowley told ITV Racing.

“This is serious – that race there, you’re talking about the best milers in Europe. I wouldn’t say he’s made them look ordinary, but he won very well.”

Showcasing shuttled to Haunui Farm in New Zealand for seven seasons and has sired Group Two winners Play That Song, Xpression, and Show Boy.
