Moody Eyeing Group 1 Victory with Glenfiddich

It’s been nearly five years between drinks for a Group 1 winner for trainer Peter Moody, who thinks his talented three-year-old Glenfiddich might be the right horse to break the drought.

The son of Fastnet Rock impressed in the Group 1 Memsie Stakes (1400m) first up, before taking out the Group 2 Stutt Stakes (1600m) in dominant fashion, which prompted Moody to declare that he’d ‘win the Guineas and then come back here (Moonee Valley) for a Cox Plate’.

However, a throat complaint derailed the campaign, and Moody is confident that the colt will measure up in the autumn.

“I’ll get him ready to go in Melbourne because we get dry tracks, which I think is essential to him in the autumn,” Moody said.

“He’s tracking along alright, and he’ll be ready to trial sort of middle of January there somewhere.”

“He’ll be aimed at one of those weight-for-age races (The C.F. Orr, or the Futurity Stakes) to kick off and then go into the Australian Guineas second-up at the mile,” Moody said.

“I haven’t got to that stage to see if he’s improved since the last campaign, but I would certainly hope so because he was going alright in the spring,” Moody said.

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.
