Mission Phoenix (Reset/Oh Susannah) was on the canvas, only to rise yet again, claiming the Elite Turf Projects Handicap over 1800m at Rosehill Saturday 26th November 2022.
He jumped well from barrier 4 to find the fence and take up the lead. Apprentice Jockey Tyler Schiller kept Mission Phoenix comfortable, his large gait allowing him to maintain the lead at a high cruising speed without pressure. Beautifully rated by Tyler he was still in the lead when they turned for home. When challenged by Worthily (USA) at the 200m mark he dug deep to hold him off, drawing away on the line to win by nearly half a length.
Congratulations to Mr Paul Cheng and Mr Lam, this gutsy win showcasing Mission Phoenix’s grit and determination to win.
