Wanted Wins 2010 Newmarket Handicap

Moments before a freak storm hit Melbourne and blanketed the famous Flemington racecourse in hailstones the size of lemons, the Peter Moody-trained Wanted put an end to his frustrating succession of minor Group 1 placings and finally scored the big one, taking out the $1million Newmarket Handicap (1200m).

In a powerful all-the way win, three-year-old Wanted ($13) got to the lead early after jumping well from gate seven and held on to beat home the fast-finishing Eagle Falls ($10) by a length with Starspangledbanner ($8.50) just a neck back in third.

It was a disappointing finish for the $6.50 favourite All Silent who crossed the line a distant 11th after finding the wet track too difficult.

The victory was a further triumph for Moody and Wanted following the Fastnet Rock colt?s recent string of runs that saw him place fourth to Starspangledbanner in the Oakleigh Plate last start and finishing as runner-up in three consecutive Group 1 features before that.

Wanted has now won three of his 14 career starts for $1, 191, 000 in prizemoney. Moody will next run his champion colt, destined for a lucrative career at stud, in the Group 1 T J Smith Stakes at Randwick on April 10.

Only six of the scheduled races were run at the meeting, the Newmarket Guineas the last of the day, with intense rainfall and damaging storms hitting the course mere minutes after Wanted ran the race of his life.

The other two major Group 1 races scheduled on the Super Saturday of Racing were cancelled due to the torrential rain and dangerous track conditions. The $1million Group 1 Australian Cup and the $750, 000 Group 1 Australian Guineas have been rescheduled for next Saturday, March 13, where they will be added to the exciting Blamey Stakes card.
