Another Win for Famous Seamus – 2013 Prime Minister’s Cup Results

Sydney gelding Famous Seamus has stolen another race off the Queenslanders with a strong win in the Listed 2013 Prime Minister’s Cup (1300m) at the Gold Coast today.

After solid results in the early autumn, trainer Noel Mayfield-Smith decided to take the four-year-old to Queensland and he immediately struck to win the Hinkler Handicap last month.

He showed no signs of slowing down today as he claimed victory in an open betting race from consistent Brisbane gallopers River Lad and Fire Up Fifi.

Fellow southerner Mahisara led and ensured the race would be run at a genuine tempo which allowed every horse their chance in the Queensland feature race.

But it was Famous Seamus who peaked at the right time in the run before showing toughness to hold off the fast-finishing River Lad.

The son of Elusive City now has seven wins and four minor placings from 17 career starts.

Famous Seamus is expected to go on to better races at the Brisbane winter carnival and is nominated for the 2013 Stradbroke Handicap.

He was one of 140 horses entered for the Stradbroke on Wednesday which is set to attract a stronger field than usual courtesy of an increased $1 million winner’s cheque.

Among the key horses nominated for Queensland’s most prestigious race are Group 1 winners Epaulette and Sea Siren and Queensland’s number on horse Buffering.
