Happy 100 for Mark du Plessis

Ballymore congratulates outstanding jockey Mark du Plessis on riding his 100th winner for the season - and we are very pleased that it was one of our's!

Taking an early lead from an inside gate on the in-form mare Madly Bentley, du Plessis did not panic when the horse was joined - and passed - with 800m to go.

As the leader kicked into the straight, du Plessis kept Madly Bentley in a nice rhythm and over the final stages she was able to regain the lead and snare victory - a tough performance!

Successful at three of her last four starts, the Australian bred daughter of Flying Spur is owned by Paul Moroney and Lib Petagna's JMB Bloodstock Ltd who lease the talented mare to Ballymore Stables Australia.

A $A40,000 Sydney Easter yearling purchase for Paul, Madly Bentley is a horse he hopes will progress through the classes.

"She is bred to sprint being by Flying Spur out of Snippets' family," he said, "but she has found her way this seaon over ground - winning three times at 2000m plus."

"It must be the influence of her dam sire Zabeel," he continued, adding that "she might get to stakes class next season."
