Mohican Heights (Australia) Winning The Listed Stonehege Stakes At Salisbury

Simcock Looking To Heights

David Simcock is awaiting the commencement of the 2020 flat turf season with keenness as he prepares the unbeaten Mohican Heights (Ire) (Australia {GB}) for a potential Derby tilt. Acquired by Qatar Racing and Sun Bloodstock for £520,000 at the Goffs London Sale following his winning debut for the Fozzy Stack stable at Leopardstown, the half-brother to the Group 3- winning stayer Eye of the Storm (Ire) (Galileo {Ire}) was successful for his new yard in Salisbury's Listed Stonehenge Stakes (pictured) over a mile in August.

"He is the one I'm looking forward to the most of our 3-year-olds," he said. "He's a talented horse and one who will stay very well. He has a great attitude and will go on most ground, but doesn't want extremes. I probably felt it was all happening a bit too soon for him last year and we were conscious that he is bred to get a mile and a half very well, so we decided to wait. My own personal favourite race for him would be the [Listed] Cocked Hat [S. at Goodwood]. It's been a good race for us in the past."
