Wet Gold Coast to Help Wall Street – Hollindale Stakes 2012

Experienced gelding Wall Street is expected to benefit from a predicted wet Gold Coast track in Saturday’s Group 2 $300,000 2012 Hollindale Stakes (1800m).

A wet Gold Coast track will help Wall Street in Saturday's Hollindale Stakes

The track was this morning rated a heavy 8 and with more showers forecasted for this afternoon, it is unlikely the track will have time to dry out too much before tomorrow’s bumper Gold Coast meeting.

A four-time Group 1 winning horse, the conditions should suit the son of Montjeu who has won three times and placed on another two occasions from seven starts on slow or heavy tracks.

He will have the blinkers he wore in his disappointing 15th in Saturday’s Doncaster removed, something his trainer Michael Moroney now admits was a mistake.

“I made a blue by putting blinkers on him for the Doncaster but he pulled his head off,” Moroney said.

“They’re coming off for the Hollindale and I’m expecting him to go a lot better.”

For the winner 11 of 32 to starts to claim the Gold Coast feature this Saturday he will have to break his right-handed track hoodoo, something Moroney believes should not be a problem.

“Oly [Damien Oliver] has been riding him lately and he can’t find a reason why he doesn’t seem to race at his best right-handed,” Moroney said.

“He doesn’t get on the wrong leg or anything like that. It’s just one of those things.”

Wall Street is currently paying $8.50 to win on Saturday with German import Mawingo the $3.40 bookmaker.com.au favourite.

The Anthony Freedman-trained Mawingo has drawn the inside barrier and was very impressive in his Australian debut on April 14 when winning the Muscular Dystrophy Australia Plate by two lengths.

Also set to run are Auckland Cup winner Shez Sinsational, former Doncaster winner Triple Honour and British import Foreteller.
