Group 1 for Majordan
The Benstud bred and raised Majordan notched her first win at Group 1 level and an unprecedented sixth success inside 1:50 when he captured the $100,000 Len Smith Mile at Menangle on Sunday afternoon (June 30).
Starting from the pole, the six-year-old gelding pinged straight to the front and reeled off fractions of 26.6, 30, 26.4 and 26.6 to win by a head.
He stopped the teletimer at 1:49.6 – easily the fastest time of the day.
It was Majordan’s 27th lifetime win and lifted his stake tally to $393,028.
Majordan is one of eight winners thrown by supermum Benelise.
Congrats to Marc Hanover, Gordon Banks, Kevin Pizzuto and Todd McCarthy.
