Mosheen Next Race – Vinery Stud Stakes 2012

Caulfield-based trainer Robert Smerdon has confirmed the 2012 Vinery Stud Stakes as the next-up assignment for his brilliant filly Mosheen after her historical win in the Randwick Guineas over the weekend.


Randwick Guineas winner Mosheen will next contest the 2012 Vinery Stud Stakes on Golden Slipper Day

The daughter of Fastnet Rock fought hard for her third elite level win on Saturday when a never-say-die ride from jockey Danny Nikolic saw Mosheen become the first filly in history to win the Group 1 Randwick Guineas.

Making the feat even more impressive was that it was her second Group 1 win in open company on the trot following her three length romp in the Group 1 Australian Guineas at Flemington the start before.

The options the remarkable Mosheen, who Smerdon declared the best horse he’d ever trained, are plentiful.

One path could be to take her onto the Sydney Autumn Carnival Triple Crown and chase the $500,000 Group 1 Rosehill Guineas (2000m) on March 31 followed by the $1.5 million Group 1 Australian Derby (2400m) at Royal Randwick on April 14.

Following the advice of Nikolic, however, Smerdon has indicated that they were more likely to take her to the $400,000 Group 1 Vinery Stud Stakes (2000m) against a field of fellow three-year-old fillies at Rosehill Gardens on Golden Slipper Day, Easter Saturday, April 7.

“Danny (Nikolic) thinks she should go to the Vinery so that’s probably what we will do,” Smerdon said.

“Everything is an option and we’ll look at it run by run.”

The 2012 Vinery Stud Stakes, also known as the Storm Queen Stakes, would see Mosheen step up to 2000-metres, a distance she has never raced over.

She has, however, run and won over 2500-metres when she scored her maiden Group 1 title with a blistering nine length victory in last spring’s Crown Oaks at Flemington.

Following the Vinery Mosheen will either go to the 2012 Australian Derby or the $550,000 Group 1 ATC Australian Oaks (2400m) a week later on April 21.

“The preference is to keep her to her own age group and ideally her own gender so the Vinery and the Oaks would be the plan,” Smerdon explained.

Smerdon said there looked to be little Mosheen wasn’t capable of and looking even further into the future he said the $3 million Group 1 Cox Plate (2040m) and the $2.5 million Group 1 Caulfield Cup (2400m) during the Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival were on the cards followed by an international campaign in Japan for new part-owner Katsumi Yoshida.

Eventually the valuable filly, who has currently won $2,393,700 in prize money, would be retired and served by Japanese Triple Crown winner Deep Impact.

“She can do anything,” Smerdon said.

“She goes left handed, right handed, wet or dry and eats up everything she can.

“And she has been sound all along which is half the battle.”
