Hosier Qualifies for Big Dance at Coffs Harbor Cup

Leviathan owner Lloyd Williams will get a chance to claim another feature on the first Tuesday of November after Hosier, who won Thursday’s Coffs Harbor Cup (1600m), booked to join the Big Dance .

Star jockey Hugh Bowman put the Chris Reese-trained Hozier in perfect steering to victory and into Randwick’s $2 million Big Dance Field.

Bowman found the perfect spot just behind Speed ​​and produced Hosier ($2.10 fav) at the top of the straight.

The import trailed the Michael Morrison-trained The Ritz ($6) by three-quarters of a length, with Chris Waller’s Waihere Falls ($9.50) in third.

“He was impressive,” Reese told Sky Thoroughbred Central.

“After putting a little pressure on him, he had a great run.

“The angle at the top of the straight is a little deceptive. There were a lot of chances and maybe he got on better ground, but as Hugh said earlier, he probably didn’t want to go that wide.

“He was in good shape towards the end. Just seeing how he raced, I think he will improve from his run.

“I haven’t seen him pull up yet, but today he’s tidying up a bit, so up front.”

Williams, the seven-time Melbourne Cup winner as owner, only gave Leeds Hosier at the start of this preparation after training with Robert Hickmot at Victoria.

Connections saw immediate results in the midweek $150,000 feature.

“Mr. Williams clearly sent him here with a purpose. Chris polished off and that’s the result,” Bowman said.

“He has a lot more to offer.”

Hosier is a second favorite along with TAB for $11 Big Dance at the Mile Feature event in Randwick on November 1st.

Ritz can also race in 2nd place for $26.
