Manighar to Take Different Route at 2013 Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival

He was one of the stars of last autumn but trainer Peter Moody will not be looking to repeat last year’s BMW heroics with Manighar who will only be introduced late into the action at the 2013 Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival.


Manighar will not defend his title in the BMW

The import announced himself as one of the best gallopers in the nation in 2012 when he recorded a Group 1 treble in the Australian Cup, Ranvet Stakes and BMW.

But it is unlikely he will defend any of those titles, with Moody opting to remain cautious with the grey gelding who had a disappointing spring campaign cut short due to injury.

“It will be late in the autumn before we see Manighar back at the races,” Moody said.

The leading Victoria trainer outlined races such as the 2013 George Ryder Stakes (1500m) and 2013 Queen Elizabeth Stakes (2000m) as potential targets.

Also on the cards is a trip to Brisbane to chase 2013 Doomben Cup (200m) honours after he finished third to Mawingo last year.

Manighar’s spring campaign was restricted to just two starts, running second in the Makybe Diva Stakes and sixth in the Underwood Stakes.

Formerly trained by Luca Cumani, Manighar has won four of nine starts since joining Moody’s Caulfield base.

Another former Cumani-trained galloper Moody has acquired is My Quest For Peace who will race under Moody for the first time in the autumn.

The son of Galileo is likely to be aimed at a similar journey to that of Manighar last year.

My Quest For Peace arrived in Australia in the spring on the back of consecutive victories in the UK and finished fifth in the Caulfield Cup and 10th in the Melbourne Cup.
