Craig Williams Secures Anders Ride in 2020 Moir Stakes

Mon 14th September 2020

Champion rider Craig Williams has added another gun ride to his spring book, securing Anders for the Group 1 2020 Moir Stakes (1000m) at Moonee Valley on Friday 25th September.

The talented three-year-old is currently the $2.50 favourite for the 2020 Moir Stakes, after his dominant win in the 2020 San Domenico Stakes last start.

Watch: Anders tear apart a hot field in the 2020 San Domenico Stakes.

Ciaron Maher and David Eustace brought the colt down to Melbourne late last week ahead of his next task.

“He’s travelled down really well and he’ll have a couple of nice gallops heading into next week,” said Eustace.

“He’ll be carrying 52kg in the Moir and Craig will be riding.

“Obviously we have a really big opinion of him and back to the 1000m at The Valley he’ll be able to jump and run and keep that sustained speed and be hard to catch, I’m sure he’ll get some of those other horses out of their comfort zones.”

Anders is currently the $2.50 favourite for the 2020 Moir Stakes, with Fabergino ($6), Bella Vella ($8),  Hanseatic ($8), and Pippie ($9) the next in line.

From Muswellbrook to the Melbourne Cup, Will is mad about all things racing and sport. Spent countless hours in the backyard as a child pretending to be Glenn McGrath, and has been known to get deadly late swing with a taped tennis ball.
