Bonnie Mac Returns in 2012 Christmas Stakes – Boxing Day Races

Michael Moroney’s lightly-raced mare Bonnie Mac delighted punters in the autumn and she returns to the track on Boxing Day in the Listed 2012 Christmas Stakes (1200m) at Caulfield.

After arriving in Australian on the back of two wins from three starts in New Zealand, the daughter of Thorn Park won her first three Australian starts including the Listed Proud Miss Stakes by 1 1/2 lengths at Morphetville.

She could not take her success to the next level at the Brisbane Winter Carnival, failing in two starts in Group 2 and Group 1 grade, but still boasts an impressive early career record of five wins from eight starts.

The promising mare has since undergone surgery to recitfy breathing problems which Moroney believes was one of the reasons for her lack of success in Brisbane.

But the former New Zealand trainer is confident she has made a strong recovery from the surgery and is excited about testing her on race day next week.

”Her jumpouts have been good and she is certainly breathing better than she ever has” Moroney told Racing Victoria.

“I’m confident that if it holds up under race conditions she should run very well.”

Given her breathing problems, Moroney has been reluctant to commit to a future program but outlined the Group 1 2013 Robert Sangster Stakes (1200m) at Morphetville, most recently won by Black Caviar, as a possible autumn goal.

Also nominated to contest the Christmas Stakes are multiple stakes winner Zedi Knight, Stephen Briown-trained gelding Sea Lord and Tony Vasil’s Veewap.
