Koundouris and his team train Nostradamus, a four-year-old, in the race, which covered a distance of 1300 meters and carried a purse of $200,000.
The Theo Marks Stakes, which is run yearly, is named for Theo John Marks, the architect and chairman of the Rosehill Racing Club. According to Michael Koundouris, “Our jockey, Tim Clark, did an incredible job in training Nostradamus, and during the race. Although we did not win, the day was exciting and filled with suspense. The winning horse, Winx, ran a superb race, coming from last to first. We have learned a great deal by participating in this race.”
Jockey Tim Clark was born in Leeton in the Reverina area of NSW and rode his first winner, Tactica, at Gundagai in 2003. He shot to prominence as the champion apprentice during the 2005-2006 season in Sydney and has formed a strong partnership with former top race mare Hot Danish. Clark has won 14 races, including 12 Stakes events. He also rode in Hong Kong, with victories including the Group 1-Hong Kong Classic Cup, riding It Has To Be You.
Nostradamus has been running the circuit for two years since his entry as a two-year-old in 2013. The race features Group 2 status horses which are considered the best in the racing field.
