Caulfield Guineas Winner Anacheeva Retires

Premier Victorian horseman Peter Moody announced yesterday that his reigning Caulfield Guineas winner Anacheeva would be retired immediately, ruling them out of contention for this Saturday’s Dato Tan Chin Nam Stakes at Moonee Valley.


Caulfield Guineas winner Anacheeva has been retired from racing

Four-year-old Anabaa stallion Anacheeva failed to impress when they resumed at Caulfield on August 27, the once very promising galloper finishing a distant 11th behind new stablemate King’s Rose in the Group 2 Memsie Stakes (1400m).

Anacheeva was originally going to be given the chance to bounce back in the $300,000 Group 2 Dato’ Tan Chin Nam Stakes (1600m) this weekend, but connections have since decided to abort plans to race on with the Group 1 hero.

The decision was made by Moody after Anacheeva worked at Caulfield on Tuesday and came after the galloper had already been paid up for at first acceptance stage for the 2011 Caulfield Cup and Cox Plate 2011 which closed yesterday.

Moody had Anacheeva nominated for all the Melbourne Spring Carnival majors including the $2.5 million Group 1 Caulfield Cup (2400m), $3 million Group 1 Cox Plate (2040m) and the showcase race of the year – the $6.2 million Group 1 Emirates Melbourne Cup (3200m).

Futures betting on the features didn’t fancy Anacheeva, who was a double or triple figure roughie in all the markets at Luxbet.

At the end of their racing career, Anacheeva’s record stands at 12 starts for four wins earning $969,275 in prize money.

After winning a two-year-old maiden on debut at Sale in March of 2010, Anacheeva would go on to record three successive victories during their three-year-old season with wins in the Listed McKenzie Stakes (1200m), Group 3 Caulfield Guineas Prelude (1400m) and the Group 1 Caulfield Guineas (1600m).

In their six subsequent runs after winning the Caulfield Guineas, Anacheeva failed to return to form with their best finish being third behind 2011 Melbourne Cup betting favourite Shamrocker in the Group 1 Australian Derby (2400m) at Randwick on April 9.

While Anacheeva has been withdrawn from the Moonee Valley race line-up this Saturday, Moody is still set to have a strong representation at the meeting.

Moody’s most notable runners in Melbourne this weekend will be 2011 Manikato Stakes-bound Kulgrinda in the $150,000 Group 3 Mitty’s McEwen Stakes (1000m) and his Group 1 winning Kiwi import King’s Rose in the $200,000 Group 2 WH Stocks Stakes (1600m).

Final fields for the Moonee Valley races are due for release this afternoon and will be published here at along with all the latest news, betting and field updates.
