Mosheen Scares Away 2012 Vinery Stud Stakes Nominations

Robert Smerdon’s brilliant filly Mosheen seems to have scared away the competition in Saturday’s Vinery Stud Stakes 2012 at Rosehill Gardens with just six other three-year-old fillies nominating for the Golden Slipper Day showdown.


Overseas-bound Mosheen will shoot for Group 1 win number four in the 2012 Vinery Stud Stakes

Formerly known as the Storm Queen Stakes, this year’s edition of the $400,000 Group 1 Vinery Stud Stakes (2000m) looks to be easy pickings for Fastnet Rock filly Mosheen to post her fourth thoroughbred major.

Winner of the Crown Oaks during last year’s Melbourne Cup Carnival, at her last two appearances Mosheen has defeated big open-sex fields firstly by a minimum three lengths in the Group 1 Australian Guineas (1600m) and then by a more conservative quarter of a length in the Group 1 Randwick Guineas (1600m) which was her first start in Sydney.

With a run and elite level win the other way of going now under her belt, Mosheen should relish stepping up to the 2000-metres in the Vinery Stud Stakes on Saturday.

Smerdon is keeping the autumn options open with Mosheen at this stage and is likely to decide on whether it will be the $1.5 million Group 1 ATC Australian Derby (2400m) at Royal Randwick Saturday week or the $550,000 Group 1 ATC Australian Oaks (2400m) the following weekend for Mosheen next race after the Vinery.

In the Australian Derby odds at Mosheen has dropped down to $11 fourth favourite behind Laser Hawk ($4), Silent Achiever 9$4.40) and Ambidexter ($10) who ran first, third and fourth respectively in the Rosehill Guineas (2000m) last Saturday.

For the 2012 Australian Oaks she is the clear $2.60 favourite followed by NZ Derby winner Silent Achiever ($3.60)

There is a chance, however, that Saturday will turn out to be Mosheen’s swansong Aussie start before she heads overseas to race.

The biggest dangers to Mosheen in the Vinery Stud Stakes are then the Guy Walter-trained Flight Stakes  Streama coming off a fifth in the Coolmore Classic and Anthony Cummings’ recent Canberra Guineas winner She Goes To Rio who was last seen finishing a devastatingly close second in the Group 3 Keith F Nolan Classic (1600m) at Kembla Grange last week.

Rounding out the nominees are then Keith F Nolan third placegetter Aliyana Tilde, John Thompson’s improving Captain Rio filly Another Superior, the Grahame Begg-trained Plumm and Thy from the Caulfield stables of Peter Moody.

Golden Slipper Day race fields are due for released on Wednesday, except for the day’s two headline events with the Golden Slipper and The BMW field out tomorrow.
