Peter Moody To Retain Daniel Stackhouse

Daniel Stackhouse looks as if he will be retained by leading Victorian trainer Peter Moody after the young Kiwi apprentice kicked home another winner for Moody on Wednesday.

Stackhouse produced an impressive ride aboard There’s Only One for Moody, who won easily at Sandown, going home ahead of odds on favourite Bouggie Dancer.

“I am not 100 per cent sure if it has been ticked  off yet but Daniel looks like being given a six month extension which carries him through to the end of January,” Moody said.

“I think it will be great for the stable, and great for him. It’s an added bonus that we have got a claimer here that’s in great form, and it gives him an opportunity to outride his claim.”

Stackhouse was instrumental in helping Moody achieve a century of metropolitan winners in Melbourne. Stackhouse managed to ride 12 of Moody’s last 23 winners on his way to a century.

Coming into the final week of the racing season, Stackhouse had managed to ride 15 winners from a total of 58 rides for a winning rate of 25.86 per cent.

That winning percentage is actually the best of any jockey in the country, although it must be said, Stackhouse is coming off a smaller base of rides, however the fact that he has a better winning percentage than Nash Rawiller (23.45 per cent), Corey Brown (16.04) and Chris Munce (15.02) is testament to how well the young Kiwi hoop is riding. In fact he even has a better winning percentage at the moment than Moody’s stable jockey Luke Nolen (16.9).

“I can’t believe how well things have gone since I have been here,” Stackhouse said.

“The support I have had from Peter and the other trainers around here has been fantastic.

“Peter has been great with his advice on my style. He has helped me become a more vigorous rider and stronger in the finish.

Stackhouse said he was aware that Victorian apprentices suffered during the spring carnival because of the influx of interstate riders, however the New Zealander is prepared to ‘keep working hard’ to establish himself in the state.

“It does get tough for apprentices but if I have to more riding in the country, then that’s what has to be done. I’ll just keep working hard and riding winners, hopefully I will get a chance.”
