After settling near the rear of the field, Eamon Maguire (Art Major) made a mid race move to sit in the breeze.
Going down the back the final time he forged to the front and simply cruised to a four and a half length win over Mongolian Storm (Courage Under Fire), with Whittaker (Sportswriter) finishing a nice third after being dragged back through the field.
For Eamon Maguire this was his first start since finishing third in the Group One New Zealand Derby.
He has been a model of consistency throughout his career recording eight wins and four placings from twelve starts for $75,005 in earnings.
Bred by Ray and Diana Kennedy, Eamon Maguire is the second foal of the In The Pocket mare Kim Maguire - she a grand daughter of the famous broodmare Chaangerr.
