Anacheeva Back in Work

Anacheeva Back in Work

The Peter Moody trained Anacheeva is back in work and will be looking to recapture the form that saw him go through the spring of 2010 undefeated.


Anacheeva will be hoping for another undefeated spring campaign

The son of Anabaa had an amazing spring carnival last year which culminated in his victory in the Group One Caulfield Guineas.

Last spring Anacheeva won a Stakes race at Moonee Valley before going on to win the Caulfield Guineas Prelude and the Caulfield Guineas, where he beat well performed horses such as Toorak Toff, Ilovethiscity and Masquerader.

However the wheels fell off when Anacheeva was bought back to contest races in the Sydney Autumn festival.

Anacheeva was being aimed at the AJC Derby, and while he ended up running third in that race, his lead in form was terrible.

Anacheeva failed to fire in four consecutive races, which had many people questioning the strength of the Caulfield Guineas victory. However the horse did manage to regain some respect with a fighting third in the AJC Derby behind Shamrocker.

Anacheeva is owned by Rockmount, a Victorian spelling and pre-training operation.

Rockmount general manager Damian Murphy confirmed that the horse would be aimed at the Group One Cox Plate.

“It’s up to Peter Moody of course, but we’d like to think he’s a Cox Plate type of horse. He’s a Caulfield Guineas winner and has shown he can stay 2400m so somewhere in between will suit nicely,” said Murphy.

Murphy also said that Anacheeva had taken great benefit from his spell and would come back in the spring as a much improved horse.

“He showed in the Derby he is still one of the best, if not the best three year colt in Australia so it was decided to give him a proper break to prepare for the spring.

“He looks fantastic. He has put on 60 kilos and is a happy horse.” Murphy said.
