Irish Dream Earns Spot on Moody’s Spring Team

Premier Victorian trainer Peter Moody, most famous for being the master horseman behind Australia’s magnificent mare Black Caviar, last Saturday unearthed another potential spring star with his emerging four-year-old Irish Dream winning at Eagle Farm.

Possibly putting recent retirement plans on hold, Falbrav mare Irish Dream posted her second Brisbane win on the trot on Tattersall’s Tiara Day, beating home a quality field in the $50,000 Carlton Mid Class 6 Handicap (1200m).

Having won her last start at Doomben only a fortnight earlier, Irish Dream went out as the clear $3.60 favourite on Saturday and she didn’t disappoint.

Jockey Luke Nolen gave Irish Dream a well-timed ride and she was able to hold off a late challenge from Lifebuoy ($11) to score a solid half-length win while the Troy Hall-trained I’m Ruthless ($13) was a further three and a half lengths back for third.

Recently acquired for $150,000 by Segenhoe Stud at the Magic Millions National Broodmare Sale, sold by Heinrich Bloodstock, Irish Dream will still be sent to the breeding barn at a later date having increased her value as a broodmare with last weekend’s win.

“She was already a valuable mare being stakes placed and now she’s won another couple of city races it adds even more appeal,” Moody said.

Saturday’s victory, her second from three starts in the Segenhoe Stud colours, also set a new class record time with Irish Dream winning in a slick 1.09.63 seconds.

Irish Dream, who has now won four of her 19 career starts to date, is expected to be sent for a short spell before Moody brings her back for a tilt at the later Melbourne Spring Carnival features.

“I’ve seen enough of her to give her a go in the spring or alternatively she might be covered and have one or two starts in Melbourne (after being put in foal),” Moody said.

Segenhoe Stud also enjoyed a Group race placing at Eagle Farm on Saturday with Thorn Park mare Swiss Rose, purchased for $300,000 and also prepared by Moody, running an eye-catching third to Peter Snowden’s Pinwheel in the $175,000 Group 3 WJ Healy Stakes (1200m).
