More Stakes Success for Choisir Gelding
Winner of the Group II BRC Queensland Guineas last year, talented gelding Sir Moments (4g Choisir x Colourful Moments, by Zabeel) looks set for another good campaign after winning the Listed BRC Tails Stakes at Doomben on Saturday. Trained by Steven O’Dea for a big syndicate of Proven Thoroughbreds owners, Sir Moments strode clear to win the 1630 metre feature by more than a length. A $40,000 Magic Millions purchase for Proven Thoroughbreds from the draft of Widden Stud, Sir Moments has won seven of 17 starts earning over $600,000 in prizemoney and was bred by Gooree Stud. He is the first winner for Colourful Moments, a half-sister by Zabeel to stakes-winner Magsaya from the family of Group I winner Princess Talaria. Sir Moments is one of 64 stakes-winners for Coolmore stalwart Choisir, who is the second on the leading Australian Sires List by winners this season.
