Sydney accountant Malcolm Moss had more than 200,000 reasons to smile after consistent mare Royal Reign scored a narrow win in the Listed Tails Stakes at Eagle Farm.

Royal Reign travelled in the box seat for leading jockey Chris Munce before scoring her ninth career win when she downed Little Stranger by a short neck in Saturday’s feature over 2136 metres.

Winmara was a further neck away third.

Moss originally owned only 10 per cent of Royal Reign when she was raced in a syndicate after being bought in New Zealand by Victorian trainer Colin Little.

“I was in a syndicate and had 10 per cent of her but she wasn’t going well down there so the syndicate members sold her for $7000,” Moss said.

“She was then moved to Bill Pholi at Ballina and he rang me up one day when I was in New York asking if I wanted to buy her so I did.”

The phone call has proven most profitable for Moss who made his first trip to Brisbane to watch the six-year-old’s victory.

“I think after this win she’s won more than $200,000 since I bought in,” Moss said.

Pholi wasn’t in attendance at the meeting preferring to stay home at Ballina to watch the race on television.

Moss is unsure of the daughter of Viscount’s future and will leave all decisions up to her trainer.

“Bill makes all those decisions but I think she’ll probably run at Doomben in a fortnight,” Moss said.

Munce, who earlier won the Becks Handicap (1200m) on Lucky Morna, believes Moss is in for an exciting time with the mare before she eventually heads to stud.

“She’s very tough and you’re going to have a lot of fun with her,” Munce told Moss.

“She’s got a heart as big as herself. She had them beaten a long way from home.”

Trainer Brian Smith was pleased with the performance of runner-up Little Stranger who refused to give in down the straight.

“I was quite happy with that run,” Smith said.

“He’s an eight-year-old but has been racing mostly in class six sprints.

“I think he’s going well enough to progress to 2200 metres.”
