Anniversary to Pins’ gallant son

The WS-bred and sold Seize The Moment completed a grand day at Trentham for the nursery when he won the Gr 3 Anniversary this afternoon. His victory followed the earlier successes of the Savabeel three-year-old Hall Of Fame in the Gr 1 Levin Classic.
Trained by Stephen Marsh, Pins’ son Seize The Moment posted the seventh win of his career when he beat his stablemate Thee Auld Floozie. “It’s good to see the big boy back and Stephen was very confident,” Mildon said. “Thee Auld Floozie gave him a good fight, but he got there in the end. She tried hard, but it was his day today.”
Successful rider Matt Cameron also paid tribute to Seize The Moment’s fighting qualities after they had been left in front at the top of the straight. “He did it tough outside the leader and when the second horse came up he fought really well. He’s a horse that loves a dog fight and he’s as tough as they come.”
The six-year-old was purchased for $50,000 at Karaka by Albert Bosma’s Go Racing syndication company. He is out of the Masterclass mare Dancing Mistress, also the dam of the stakes winner Savour The Moment (Savabeel).
