Wall Street Set for 2013 CF Orr Stakes Challenge

They may be one of the outsiders in the CF Orr Stakes 2012 betting and gone over two years without a win but trainer Michael Moroney remains confident his veteran galloper Wall Street can still compete with the best of them this Melbourne Festival of Racing.

Wall Street

Veteran galloper Wall Street is out to break a lengthy winning drought in the 2013 CF Orr Stakes

Eight-year-old Montjeu gelding Wall Street hasn’t won a race since their Group 1 Spring Classic (2040m) victory at Hastings in New Zealand with previously prepared across the Tasman by Jeff Lynds.

Racing under Moroney’s preparation in Victoria since early last year, Wall Street has had a hit and miss season with their new trainer.

They were last seen finishing two and a half lengths away eighth to Mr Moet in the Group 1 Railway Stakes (1600m) at Ascot in late November and will face that last start conqueror again this Saturday in the $400,000 Group 1 C.F. Orr Stakes (1400m) at Caulfield Racecourse.

This will be their Wall Street’s fourth run at the track, their best result at Caulfield being their fourth to King Mufhasa in the 2011 Toorak Handicap.

Reigning New Zealand Horse of the Year King Mufhasa is also among Wall Street’s CF Orr Stakes rivals on the weekend, the 10-time Group 1 winning warhorse sitting as the $4 second favourite behind crack colt All Too Hard at $2.40.

Wall Street, drawn in gate six with Steven Arnold to ride, meanwhile can be found much further down the CF Orr Stakes betting odds at a quote of $31, a price Moroney hopes they can prove better then.

Following the CF Orr Stakes Moroney has one more run planned for Wall Street before they tackle the $1 million Group 1 Australian Cup (2000m) at Flemington on March 9.

“He didn’t lose a lot of fitness in his time off and he’ll kick off in this on Saturday and probably head towards the Australian Cup with one run in between,” Moroney said.

“He looks well and he didn’t start racing until he was four so hopefully he has still got a season left in him.

In the current futures Australian Cup odds at bookmaker.com.au Wall Street is an $81 roughie, markets led by last spring’s Melbourne Cup hero Green Moon ($4.20) and Saturday’s CF Orr Stakes top fancy All Too Hard ($4.60).

And it is All Too Hard, out to become the first three-year-old CF Orr Stakes winner since Yell in 2003, that Moroney knows will be the benchmark horse in the CF Orr.

“Obviously Hawkes’ horse at weight-for-age is going to be pretty hard to beat,” he admitted.

Moroney also has 2011 Mackinnon Stakes winner Glass Harmonium on track for a 2013 Australian Cup bid this autumn, the imported Verglas grey last seen running a brave second to Caulfield Cup runner-up Alcopop when attempting to defend their Mackinnon title on November 3.

“He might have a jump-out on Friday,” Moroney said of the seven-year-old.

“He seems good and he’ll go first-up into the 1800 metre race (the Peter Young Stakes) and then on to the Australian Cup.”
