Montaigne sold to Hong Kong

Exciting three-year-old Montaigne will not race in the Australian Derby after a deal was struck to sell the horse to Hong Kong interests.

The deal, believed to be a seven figure amount, was completed since the Anthony Cummings-trained gelding finished fourth in last Saturday's Group I The BMW (2400m).


"We've had interest from Hong Kong for the last couple of months and we agreed on a figure after his fourth in the BMW,” stable spokesman Edward Cummings said.

"You never like to see a horse of his ability leave the stable but it's business and despite our desire to keep him at Randwick, we're always mindful of getting a return for our owners.

"Racing Montaigne has been a great experience for those owners.”


The son of Road To Rock burst onto the scene earlier this year with wins at Warwick Farm and Randwick before placings in the Group I Rosehill Guineas (2000m) and Group II Hobartville Stakes (1400m).


Montaigne passed a preliminary examination on Tuesday and will be trained by John Moore in Hong Kong.

Top Of My List Takes Out The Listed Sydney Markets Lord Mayor's Cup 2000m

Top Of My List and Tim Clarke made it two wins in a row in taking out the Sydney Markets Lord Mayor's Cup 2000m at Rosehill yesterday . Tim Clarke had this to say on her run "She was good. She had to rise in weight today and get back on top of the ground. She was able to control the race from outside the speed. The more I ride her the more I get to know her. She likes to flow through her gears. You can't just get her to dash off the mark. I thought she gave a good kick at the top of the straight. She was vulnerable late but she kept sticking her head out ".
