Mourayan Wins 2012 Craven Plate – Randwick Race Results

October 8th, 2012

Mourayan has won the Group 2 Craven Plate at Royal Randwick racecourse last Saturday October 6, 2012.

The seven-year-old has won four of his 32 race starts and has earned more than $1 million in prize money during his horse racing career.

Mourayan won the 2012 Craven Plate by a head in front of Western Symbol, who placed second, and Dare To Dream, who passed the post in third.

The Alhaarth entire was third-up in the 2012 Craven Plate, finishing fourth and second in his previous two spring starts, respectively.

His most recent result came when narrowly defeated by Lamasery in the Group 2 Hill Stakes at Royal Randwick racecourse on September 22, 2012.

Jockey Hugh Bowman was aboard Mourayan for his 2012 Craven Plate win.

Bowman is considering riding Mourayan in the 2012 Melbourne Cup on November 6, 2012.

”He is getting to the top of the list,” Bowman said.

“I know him well and it’s great to win on him,” Bowman said.

“He could be my Melbourne Cup ride. My options are thin on the ground.”

”He just fights so hard.

“It’s onwards and upwards from here.”
