Overshare triumphs by a length in McKenzie Stakes

August 28, 2017

Spendthrift Farm’s Overshare earned his first black-type win on Aug. 26 with a handy one-length victory in the $120,000 McKenzie Stakes at Moonee Valley.

The 3-year-old colt was keen from the get-go, leading the entire 1200 meters under jockey Dwayne Dunn to record his second win in five career starts, while earning $123,700.

“The difference between this time and the last time he was here was he wanted to get a bit keen,” co-trainer Wayne Hawkes said.

“It’s great for Spendthrift Farm because he’s now a Group winner.

“He’s another colt that will go off to stud and that’s what it’s all about for them.”
