Mazu out to reclaim his title

Triple Crown’s Group 1 winning sprinter, Mazu, first ventured north to Queensland soil in 2022 off the back of five consecutive wins. His assignment was the Group 1 Doomben 10000 and he extended his winning streak to six on the bounce. In 2023, Mazu returned to defend his crown and ran a very gallant third behind Giga Kick. Now in 2024, he returns in a bid to reclaim his title by winning Queensland’s premier sprint race after winning the Group 3 Hall Mark Stakes at Royal Randwick in his previous start – the same feat achieved by Triple Crown with Redzel in 2017.

The now Joe Pride trained galloper has found a small but typically very strong field in this year’s Doomben 10000. Joe has been very happy with Mazu since his last start win and feels the horse is ready to run a very bold race. In form jockey Tyler Schiller takes the reigns in his first race start aboard the Group 1 winner.
