Money Magnet wins Eileen Cligott Memorial

Trainer Richard Azan's MONEY MAGNET on Saturday outclassed stablemate PEKING CRUZ to win the Eileen Cligott Memorial at six and a half furlongs.

MONEY MAGNET chased Anthony Nunes' EXHILARATE down the backstretch before PEKING CRUZ took over from the early leader.

PEKING CRUZ entered the straight a clear leader but 1-2 favourite MONEY MAGNET closed strongly along the rail and ran on with Barbadian Simon Husbands a half-furlong out to win by a length and a half in a smart 1:17.4.

Two-time former champion jockey Dane Nelson and apprentice Reyan Lewis each rode two winners on the 11-race card.

Nelson landed back-to-back winners, 3-2 chance GOLDEN DESTINY and UNCLE FREDDIE at 5-2 in the ninth and 10th races, respectively, joining apprentice Christopher Mamdeen atop the jockeys' standings on 11 winners.

Lewis opened his tally aboard 4-5 favourite JAMALJAMES in the third and closed the card with five-straight specialist ADONIS at even-money.

Racing continues on Saturday.
