Wall Street Back in Melbourne for 2012 Memsie Stakes

Trainer Mike Moroney is hoping veteran gelding Wall Street still has plenty left to offer and he will begin his spring campaign at Caulfield on Saturday in the Group 2 2012 Memsie Stakes (1400m).

Wall Street

Wall Street returns to the left-handed Melbourne tracks this weekend

After a solid spring campaign last year where he finished fourth in both the Toorak Handicap and Cox Plate, Wall Street competed at both the Sydney Autumn Carnival and the Brisbane Winter Carnival for disappointing results.

The New Zealand-bred eight-year-old ran third in the Blamey Stakes but that was the only highlight in a four-start Sydney campaign before going to Queensland to finish six lengths off the winner in the Hollindale Stakes and last in the Doomben Cup.

Moroney is hoping a return to the left-handed turning tracks Melbourne will reignite the son of Montjeu.

“It may be that he doesn’t fire right-handed,” Moroney said.

“I’d be disappointed if he didn’t do something on Saturday.”

Boasting a career record of 11 wins from 34 starts and $900,000 in prizemoney, Wall Street has won three Group 1 races in New Zealand as well as once at the top tier in Australia.

In fact, the last time the veteran crossed the line in front was in the 2010 Emirates Stakes at Flemington.

Wall Street will be ridden from barrier two in his spring kickoff race in a quality 15-horse field.

Among the favourites are Perth star Luckygray, 2011 Stradbroke Handicap winner Sincero, Cox Plate placegetter Rekindled Interest and Caulfield Cup runner-up Green Moon.

The Memsie Stakes takes place as the feature race on an exciting Caulfield Card that also includes the Group 3 McNeil Stakes.
