2012 Sandown Stakes Winner Is Mahisara – Race Results

November 19th, 2012

Mahisara has won the Group 3 Sandown Stakes, which took place at Sandown Racecourse last Saturday November 17, 2012.

The four-year-old won the race in front of Morant, who placed in second, and Raspberries, who finished third.

He has now won six of his 15 race starts and has earned more than $385,000 in prize money during his horse racing career.

Mahisara has won three of his four race starts this preparation, with his only defeat coming in the Listed Weekend Hussler Stakes on October 13, 2012.

Trainer Paul Messara was thrilled with Mahisara’s impressive race win in the 2012 Sandown Stakes.

“He’s a bull and you’ve got to let him do things his own way,” Messara said.

“(But) he quickened far better than I expected him to.”

Messara is yet to make any plans for Mahisara’s future.

“It’s one race at a time, we’ll have a chat to the owners,” he said.

“Today was the goal for the immediate prep.”

Jockey Craig Williams said Mahisara gave him a great feel as he sped away to claim the 2012 Sandown Stakes.

“For a jockey he’s actually a beautiful ride,” Williams said.

“I’ve been pretty happy with the last two rides on him.

“Well done to Paul Messara and all his staff.

“He’s now got a Group race beside his name.

“I think he can find another Group race for him in the autumn.”
