City win for Elmantosh

Sep 23, 2013

Elmantosh recorded his first city win on Saturday by taking out the Mount Franklin No Metro Wins Handicap at Eagle Farm.

The outside barrier proved no issue for the Elmantosh after jockey Ric McMahon managed to slot in him into a perfect position midfield.  He pulled out into clear running in the straight and was too good for the rest of the field, scoring easily by just under two lengths. 

It was only the ninth start for the Mossman gelding who has now recorded four wins and three placings and picked up over $63,000 in prizemoney.  Trainer Bruce Hill was thrilled with the win but will wait and see how he comes on in the coming days before deciding where he goes next.
