A nice win at Gosford on Tuesday 9th November 2021 saw The Maxinator, by Dream Ahead out of the Sebring mare My Last Fling, take out Race 3, A Night to Remember @ TEG 4th December Maiden Handicap over 1200m.
The Maxinator with Jockey Josh Parr aboard, jumped well enough from barrier 4 to take up the lead on the fence. From there he stayed in front, holding off a late challenge in the straight by Just Strolling (Exceed and Excel/Famina Fashion). It was a hard-fought win in the end showing just how much he has matured, displaying grit and determination to secure the win.
Congratulations to all of the owners and connections. It was a special thrill to win for the McDonnells, with the whole family, both young and old being involved with this horse (I have it on good authority that The Maxinator is even named after one of the grandchildren).
