Total Gallery hands Moore his second Trophy in a row; REDCAR.
STAN MOORE, who owned a leg in the Richard Hannon-trained Osario, one of the early winners of Redcar's 2-Y-O Trophy - now in its 20th year - yesterday hit the jackpot in the Totescoop6- sponsored showpiece for the second consecutive year as a trainer.
Twelve months on from Dubai Destination, Moore was on the mark again with Total Gallery, who, under Liam Keniry, bagged a first prize of pounds 113,540 by a nose from Favourite Girl, with Wave Aside and Khor Dubai only heads away in third and fourth.
"Five furlongs is his trip, not six, but his class has carried him through today. I've said it before but he's a proper, proper horse, and he'll be awesome next year. Robert Winston, who felt he should have won at Ayr last time, feels he's a Group horse," said Moore, who trains the winner for Coleman Bloodstock.
The trainer added: "This win is great for the yard and everyone connected with it. This has been a tough year, both professionally and personally - my wife Sara lost both her parents in March - and we've moved yards three times, which has been quite unsettling. But we've now bought Berkeley House in Lambourn from Noel Chance and I'd like to thank everyone who has supported us."
Keniry was guilty of two cases of careless riding on Total Gallery and was suspended for four days (October 19-22).
Tim Easterby, nail-bitingly frustrated with narrowly beaten Favourite Girl in the feature race, took the lion's share of the pounds 30,000 in the Boddington's Straight-Mile Championship Final by sending out the winner Charlie Tipple and also third-placed Medici Pearl.
After seeing Charlie Tipple, under a power-packed Paul Mulrennan, prevail by a nose from Osteopathic Remedy, Easterby said: "He's best in a strongly run race, which is what he got there. I'm particularly pleased he won for the girl in charge of him, Josie Pestry, because he swung his head around when the jockey was mounting him and he put her shoulder out."
Ted Durcan, riding in the Godolphin colours, clinched the 7f Listed race on Il Warrd in a blanket finish.
Henry Cecil's Cloudy Start was an impressive winner under Tom Queally in the first division of the 7f maiden, Barry Hills and Neil Callan joined forces to land the second leg with Hail Promenader, and Packers Hill, carrying the colours of Bryan Valentine, won the 1m2f seller for Alan Swinbank and PJ McDonald.

Wave Aside should have more to come after winning the 2-Y-O Trophy. If turned out again at a realistic level, he can score again Results and analysis start page 85
