Ladies’ Man of Kingston Town Classic 2015 Field

Man Booker represents 23 female part-owners in the 2015 Kingston Town Classic at Ascot Racecourse on Saturday and is a livewire chance in the weight-for-age classic at good odds.

A three-year-old son of Discorsi, the in-form gelding took his record to four wins and a second last start on November 21 at the track with his long neck win over Spirit Bird in the Group 2 W.A. Guineas (1600m) with Jerry Noske aboard.

Twenty-year-old Noske was also the first female hoop to win the Kalgoorlie Cup when she partnered Woodsville, prepared by her father Jeff, to victory in the $160,000 feature in September this year.

Man Booker now steps up in class and distance for the $1 million Group 1 Kingston Town Classic (1800m) on the weekend as one of 16 hopefuls in the field for the final elite level race of 2015.

Three-year-olds have won the Kingston Town Classic three times in the past decade with Megatic (2007), Playing God (2010) for his first and Ihtsahymn (2013).

One of three in the Kingston Town Classic field for Daniel Morton, who shoots for his first win in the race, Man Booker currently pays $19 in the early markets at

The Kingston Town Classic odds pre-this afternoon’s barrier draw, conducted from 4:00pm (WA time), are led by German raider Magic Artist ($4.20) who ran fourth in both the Mackinnon and Emirates Stakes during the Melbourne Cup Carnival and the undefeated Grant Williams-trained Perfect Reflection ($4.40) who is out to become the first ever filly to win in the race’s history.

Morton’s other two runners are recent Group 3 R.J. Peters Stakes (1500m) winning Zabeel five-year-old Hazzabeel ($21) and Fairetha Stakes winning Blackfriars gelding London Line ($34)  who comes off a fourth to his stablemate in the WA Guineas.

One of Man Booker’s owners, the Kalgoorlie-Boulder based Danielle Pratt said the horse had caught her eye right from the get go.

“I went to track work one morning to see one of my other horses and I saw him, and he just flew around the track and he went around the corner like he was a Ferrari,” she told The Western Australia.

She is one of 23 female part-owners, 19 of which were there on race day to cheer Man Booker home in the Guineas, and described being part of the horse’s connections as a dream.

“For some of the ladies, it’s the first horse they’ve ever been involved with,” Pratt said.

“Perhaps their boyfriends or partners might have been involved in other horses and bought them a share as a present, which is the case for a few of them.

“So it’s just a dream start to their ownership.”

Pratt only has a small share in Man Booker but could still enjoy a nice little pay day should the up-and-comer score an upset in the Kingston Town Classic that offers $612,500 in prize money to the winner.

“That feeling of winning, although it’s not really about the money or the size of the share you own,” she added.

“I own a small share that costs me about $100 a month, so for a lot of girls that’s the cost of a lotto ticket or a few cups of coffee a week.”
