Godolphin Australia has posted a late win on 2015 Queensland Oaks Day at Doomben this afternoon as Mohave mustered a strong turn of foot to take out the Listed Queensland Day Plate (1200m).

Jumping from the gates well jockey James McDonald immediately led the Exceed And Excel gelding forward and settled in prime position on the heels of early leader Mywayorthehighway who set a fast pace towards the bend.

Remaining one wide with cover rounding onto the final straight, Mohave quickly upped the tempo and pulled clear of his rivals; producing a strong enough sprint to hold off a fast-finishing She’s Miss Devine; Durendal running on for third.

McDonald was thrilled with the feel offered up by Mohave in the 2015 Queensland Day Plate and is confident the firm track at Doomben this afternoon played a big part in the three-year-old’s impressive performance.

“It’s been a long day so good to finish on a high,” McDonald said.

“Full credit to the team – they took the blinkers off and it paid dividends.

“He’s a real honest sort of horse and tries hard so a pleasure to ride.

“He likes firm tracks which he hasn’t got in Sydney so his form’s not great but he’s got here in good condition and performed well.

“He was probably entitled to get a little bit tired, they made us work a bit early but he fought on.”

Talented filly She’s Miss Devine received an ideal run in transit on the rails and looked a sure thing upon rounding the final straight alongside Mohave, but was unable to produce enough of a turn of foot to post a maiden black type win.

Durendal was aiming for a third-consecutive race win in the Queensland Day Plate but was unlucky to be blocked for a run late; recovering well-enough for third.

Next weekend’s Group 2 Queensland Guineas (1600m) at Doomben will figure as the major season target for many of the 2015 Queensland Day Plate’s field.

    Hello there, I do believe your website could possibly be having internet browser compatibility issues.
    When I look at your blog in Safari, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer,
    it’s got some overlapping issues. I merely wanted to provide
    you with a quick heads up! Besides that, fantastic blog!

    I believe what you said made a great deal of sense. But, consider this, what if you added a little
    information? I mean, I don’t want to tell you how to
    run your website, but what if you added something
    to possibly get folk’s attention? I mean Mohave Takes
    Out Queensland Day Plate – HorseRacing.com.au is a little vanilla.

    You might peek at Yahoo’s home page and see how they create news headlines to grab viewers to click.
    You might add a video or a related pic or two to get people excited about what you’ve got to say.
    Just my opinion, it could bring your blog a little livelier.

    Unquestionably believe that which you stated.
    Your favorite justification seemed to be on the internet the easiest
    thing to be aware of. I say to you, I certainly get
    annoyed while people think about worries that they plainly
    do not know about. You managed to hit the
    nail upon the top as well as defined out the whole thing without
    having side effect , people can take a signal. Will probably be back to get more.

    I’m looking to start my own blog soon but I’m having a tough time making a decision between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
    The reason I ask is because your design and style seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something
    unique. P.S Apologies for being off-topic but I had to ask!
