Silent Sedition scores Maiden G1 win in William Reid Stakes

Talented mare Silent Sedition scored a maiden Group 1 win for trainer Andrew Noblet and jockey Katelyn Mallyon when she recorded a brave win in the Group 1 $500,000 Keogh Homes William Reid Stakes (1200m) at Moonee Valley on Friday night.

The drop back to 1200m after Silent Sedition ran second to Heavens Above over 1500m in the Group 1 $600,000 Coolmore Classic at Rosehill on March 11 didn’t worry the four year old mare as Mallyon rounded up the leaders on the home turn before holding off the strong finish of the Darren Weir trained Hellbent.

Silent Sedition not only recorded her first Group 1 win but also provide Mallyon and Noblet with their first taste of Group 1 success.

“I just can’t believe it. I’m just so thrilled and there are so many people to thank,” Mallyon said.

“I’m so, so happy that I can win a Group One for the Mallyon name because it’s so rich in racing history.”

Noblet is planing to head back to Sydney with War Chant mare for the Group 1 $1m Coolmore Legacy Queen Of The Turf Stakes (1600m) at Randwick on April 8, day two of ‘The Championships’,  and while he knew that Silent Sedition would run well, he didn’t think that she would be winning over the 1200m.

“I didn’t expect much here tonight, to be honest. Coming back from a mile, coming back from Sydney and to do that was just unbelievable,” Noblet said.

“She got back so well that I said to the owners during the week, ‘we have to give this horse a run’ and I didn’t want to run her in the mile (Sunline Stakes) so this was the only logical choice.

“Whatever happened, happened tonight.

“She’s just an unbelievable talent this mare.”

Silent Sedition saluted at the good odds of $7.50 and had a nose to spare over $8 chance Hellbent with the $4 favourite Star Turn running another honest race to fill third spot.

Silent Sedition is now the $6 equal favourite with Winx for the Queen Of The Turf Stakes with Ladbrokes.com.au.
