Import Taraashoq GER (Maxios GB/Tassina GER), was purchased at the Tattersalls Autumn Horses in Training Sale held at Newmarket in November 2021, guided by the expertise of Hubie De Burgh.
First up this preparation saw him travel to Gosford for their meeting held Tuesday 8th November 2022 to compete in the Pluim Group Class 1 Handicap over 1600m. Bouncing out of the gates from Barrier 8 saw him stay wide until he settled in second position just off the leader. Ridden superbly by Jockey Tom Sherry he took the lead at the turn, kicking away to win by over 2 lengths.
This 5-year-old gelding races in the Grimish Family colours with Geoff and Mary sharing the ownership with long-time stable supporter, Peter Johnston. Congratulations to the Owners and connections, with some exciting times ahead to look forward to.
