2013 Dato’ Tan Chin Nam Stakes Results – Fiorente Wins

Fiorente has produced an eye catching run to win the Group 2 Dato’ Tan Chin Nam Stakes at Moonee Valley Racecourse today September 14, 2013.

The five-year-old stormed home over his rivals to win the race ahead of Spacecraft, who finished second, and Lidari,who placed in third.

Drama surrounded the 2013 Dato’ Tan Chin Nam Stakes well before the barriers opened, when Happy Trails was suspected of being treated prior to the race.

Stewards ordered a late scratching of Happy Trails after he was found to have a suspicious lump and trickle of blood on the left side of the jugular.

Trainer Paul Beshara has remained adamant that the horse was not treated prior to the race and believes that the stewards had “no proof”.

A trial will be scheduled in the near future, where Beshara will be given the opportunity to plead his case.

Fiorente has now won three of his 13 race starts and has earned more than $1.25 million in prize money during his career.

The Monsun entire finished second in the Melbourne Cup last year, in what was his first Australian race start.

He went on to perform admirably in his two race starts of 2013 before winning today’s 2013 Dato’ Tan Chin Nam Stakes.

Trainer Gai Waterhouse was watching the race from Sydney and was over the moon with Fiorente’s performance.

“Honestly when was he going to win the race?” she said.

“And then he just absolutely grew nostrils.

“It was just devastating.

“I knew that once he got over a mile he’d get into his rhythm.

“He certainly can handle the valley.”

Jockey Nash Rawiller revealed he was never concerned that Fiorente was too far back to claim the 2013 Dato’ Tan Chin Nam Stakes.

“I was comfortable a long way from home,” he said.

“He’s a pretty adaptable horse.

“He’s something pretty special.”
