Doubtful Jack Wins 2010 VRC Winter Championship Earning Spring Carnival Campaign

On Saturday the highly anticipated final of the $200,000 Listed VRC Winter Championship Series (1600m) light up the track at Flemington with premier trainer Peter Moody taking out the event with hot pre-race favourite Doubtful Jack.

Three-year-old Not A Single Doubt gelding Doubtful Jack started the race at the short odds of $1.60 after a series of quality wins and went on to easily defeat a quality field of more experienced rivals, with six-year-old Pinnacles ($26) six and a half lengths away in second and nine-year-old Riceman ($14) finishing third.

Ridden by Luke Nolen, Doubtful Jack sat just off the pace in the early stages of the Winter Championship before bursting through the field and coasting home to victory.

It was a good result for Caulfield-based trainer Peter Moody whose other runner, seven-year-old mare Ghostmilk, was scratched from the Winter Championship final.

The super consistent Doubtful Jack, purchased for $100,000 at the 2008 Magic Millions Premier Yearling Sale, has now won six of his 12 career starts for $362,165 in prizemoney and has Moody now looking towards the spring features for the emerging galloper.

The Group 1 Toorak Handicap (1600m) at Caulfield in October and the Group 1 Emirates Stakes (1600m) at Flemington on the final day of the Melbourne Cup Carnival in November are now Doubtful Jack’s two primary spring targets.

Other race series decided at Flemington on Saturday included the Banjo Patterson (2500m) won by eight-year-old Figure Of Speech, the Silver Bowl (1600m) where Redoute’s Choice gelding Exclusive Choice secured victory, and the Rivette (1600m) won by Tony Vasil’s Elvstroem filly Dorsoduro.
