Majestic Shot Goes Four for Four

Tara Madgwick - Thursday April 1

Any horse that can win a maiden, a class 1, a class 2 and now a Benchmark 64, by a combined total of 10 lengths at her first four starts is a horse we are falling a little bit in love with!

Gosford trainer Grant Allard has been going quietly with three year-old Shooting to Win filly Majestic Shot, who was made a ‘One to Watch’ after her last start win at Gouburn and she kept up the good work at Gosford on Thursday.


Ridden in each of her four starts by Mitchell Bell, Majestic Shot keeps raising the bar, and today she sped clear to win by more than three lengths denying champion sire I Am Invincible a rare race trifecta.

Majestic Shot beats the I Am Invincible army!

A modest $11,000 Inglis Classic Yearling Sale purchase from the Ashleigh Thoroughbreds draft for Grand Syndicates / J Price, Majestic Shot has already won over $70,000 thanks to some lucrative BOBS bonuses for her wins at Orange, Port Macquarie, Goulburn and now Gosford.

Bred by Senga Bissett and Ivan Woodford-Smith, Majestic Shot is the fourth winner from five to race from Curtsey, an unraced Viscount daughter of stakes-winner Greeting.

A full brother to Deep Field, Group I Caulfield Guineas winner Shooting to Win covered 73 mares last year at a fee of $16,500.

He is the sire of four stakes-winners, three of them Group III winners headed by quality mare Tailleur, who like Majestic Shot, carries a double cross of blue hen Eight Carat.
