The Movember Crown – 21st January 2017

The Movember Crown 

“There is always one!”

Season 37 5yo Of the Season nominee Addie Over Captain heads up a small field of milers in this season’s running of the Movember Crown – late last season, he was expected to win The Pegasus Plate but found one better on the day in Blackjack Farms’ Royal Flush.

These two may well fight out the finish again on Saturday with the “joker in the pack” and biggest danger being dual World Cup winner Bozo The Clown.

Born:Fri 1st Jan 2016, bred by St Simon Racing
Lineage:By Blue Tyndareus out of Blue Rhea

Stable comments: – “Awesome run from Addie Over Captain in the heats, set the fastest time by a second with plenty to give. New jock rode perfectly and will be better 2nd up with the horse. Captain was upset in the last cup final by Royal Flush and will be looking to get some revenge here. Will be disappointed with anything but the win from this race.”

Stable comments: – “Bozo wasn’t suppose to join the circus but someone called us and told us that the circus was in town and that they needed a clown, so here we are. It wouldn’t be a great circus without a clown.
