Moment Of Change 2012 Spring Carnival Over

Peter Moody-trained gelding Moment Of Change has had his 2012 Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival campaign cut short after suffering a leg injury during trackworkon Saturday.

Moment Of Change

Moment Of Change has been ruled out of the spring

The four-year-old was set to continue his spring campaign in Saturday’s 2012 Toorak Handicap but will instead head to the paddock and rest up ahead of the autumn after spraining an ankle.

“We waited until this morning to see how he was, but it wasn’t good enough so we have decided to put him in the paddock for the autumn,’ Moody said.

It comes as disappointing news to connections with the son of Barely A Moment showing he could be a major spring player last month when winning the Group 1 Sir Rupert Clarke Stakes.

Moment Of Change had three spring starts, winning the Show County Quality and finishing third in the Tramway Handicap before claiming his first Group 1 victory when returning home to Caulfield for the Sir Rupert Clarke.

The lightly-raced gelding boasts an excellent strike rate of five wins and three placings from nine career starts.

He is the latest spring casualty to come from the Peter Moody stable with champion sprinter Black Caviar and Queensland Derby winner Brambles already ruled out of the spring.

Manighar is one of Moody’s big guns still in spring contention and the leading trainer will be hoping he can bounce back from his sixth in the Underwood Stakes when he contests the Group 1 Caulfield Stakes on Saturday.

Manighar also struggled second-up in the autumn before going on to win a Group 1 treble in the Australian Cup, Ranvet Stakes and the BMW.
