Star Shock returns with Pakenham win


Coach Mike Moroney could also be compelled to place Star Shock into open firm after the three-year-old scored a first-up win at Pakenham.Moroney stated the Group Three Standish Handicap (1200m) at Flemington on New Yr’s Day could also be thought-about as there was a scarcity of appropriate three-year-old choices after Star Shock took out the John Duff & Co Handicap (1000m) on Saturday..Another choice may very well be taking the gelding to the Gold Coast for the Magic Million Guineas (1400m) on January 11.Ridden by Michael Poy, Star Shock ($9.50) scored by 1-1/four lengths from $3.40 favorite That Lady with Beautiful Magnificence ($7) a size away third.”He is eligible for the Magic Hundreds of thousands and I might need a little bit of a chat to the house owners,” Moroney stated.”However the issue is, we have had a glance by means of this system and since he is most likely going to be open class there’s not rather a lot round for him.”He might need to race towards the older horses within the Standish which seems like the one race right here for him.”Star Shock was having his first begin since working final behind Bivouac within the Useless Stakes (1100m) at Caulfield in August.It adopted successive wins at Echuca and Caulfield.”We thought his first marketing campaign was terrific and went into the Useless Stakes a little bit on the drained aspect,” Moroney stated.”This was virtually a stakes-class subject as we speak, it is only a pity that it did not have stakes-class cash.”He is a very nice sprinting horse that may do it from the entrance or the again and has been a pure all over.”
