Mazu gets new trainer
It is understood that via an online vote earlier this month the decision has been made to move from the Snowden’s to Joseph Pride.
The Snowden’s have enjoyed solid success with Mazu, recording 5 wins at stakes level as well as recording Group One success in the Doomben 10,000 last season.
Mazu has been locked in to two starts in the mega rich turf race, The Everest where he finished third in 2022 before only beating one runner home this year in the race won by Think About It trained by Pride.
The Spring overall wasn’t great for Mazu who failed to add to his 7 wins and 6 places from his 23 starts. He now leaves the Snowden stable looking to bounce back into the winners enclosure and add to his $7.7m in prize money.
He arrives in Pride's yard with plenty of good racing in front of him as a five-year-old gelding.
The arrival of Mazu further bolsters Pride’s sprinting ranks with the likes of Think About It and Private high competing at the highest level.
The New South Wales trainer has had his best year to date as a trainer with his stable starts after winning his first The Everest with Think About It while stablemate Private Eye has finished among the placings the past two years.
Mazu is rated a $51 TAB chance to win next year's The Everest.
