PEDRO XIMENEZ BREAKS HIS MAIDEN

Pedro Ximenez (3yo g High Chaparral x Killarney Heights) gave us a glimpse of what he’s capable of today when stylishly taking out the Growlers Restaurant SV Maiden Plate (2418m) at Geelong with stable rider Patrick Moloney aboard.

Trainer Mike Moroney hoped to secure a handy forward position from a barrier 5 draw, though that didn’t quite go to plan when this progressive galloper missed the beat on the jump and got back in the field.

Keeping a cool head and ensuring he relaxed and got into a nice rhythm, Moloney asked for acceleration in the home straight and Pedro Ximenez responded in fine style to secure a gritty win over his main rival.

Moroney comments of this well related son of High Chaparral whose Mother is a half-sister to Melbourne Cup Winner Viewed “He is still very green but is certainly a very nice stayer in the making. Viewed didn’t really come right until he was a late 3yo and was at his very best as a 4/5yo and likewise, patience is the key with him. He will now head for a spell to help allow him every opportunity to mature both physically and mentally”

Carrying the familiar colours of long-term stable clients Rupert & Cheryl Legh, Pedro Ximenez was selected by the keen eye of Ballymore’s appointed bloodstock agent Paul Moroney from the Three Bridges Thoroughbreds draft at the 2015 Inglis Premier Yearling Sale.

Congratulations to winning connections R & C Legh Racing Pty Ltd, R Smith, Pulitano Thoroughbreds Pty Ltd, B & C Thoroughbreds Pty Ltd, M Rasinac & Ballymore Stables (Aust) Pty Ltd.
