Moody’s 2013 Brisbane Winter Racing Carnival Quest

Melbourne’s head horseman Peter Moody is looking at another strong Brisbane Winter Racing Carnival raid this year with the news the OTI Racing-owned duo My Quest For Peace and Ibicenco are both on track for the Queensland riches.

Originating from the sunshine state, Moody won Queensland’s richest race last year with Mid Summer Music taking out the Group 1 AAMI Stradbroke Handicap (1400m).

That same race, the 2013 Stradbroke Handicap worth a record $1.36 million this year, is again in Moody’s sights with his imported Galileo stallion My Quest For Peace.

The five-year-old debuted down under with a good fifth beaten only one and a half lengths by Dunaden in last year’s Group 1 Caulfield Cup (2400m) before their 10th to Green Moon when stepped up to the two miles for the iconic Group 1 Melbourne Cup at Flemington.

They haven’t raced since but are confirmed to be heading north where their first major assignment will be the $650,000 Group 1 Doomben 10,000 (1350m) on May 25.

“We did originally have the Australian Cup in mind with him but we had a little setback with a throat infection which took the wind out of his sails and we had to give him a month off,” OTI director Terry Henderson said.

Following that lead-up race connections hope My Quest For Peace can back-up and provide Moody with back-to-back Stradbroke wins at Eagle Farm on June 8, the galloper currently rated a $41 chance in the  Stradbroke Handicap Odds which are led by local champ Buffering ($6.50).

“If everything was to go well then he could maybe push on to Eagle Farm for the Group 1 Stradbroke Handicap,” Henderson said.

“The stable are delighted with him.”

The other OTI winter prospect is then Shirocco stallion Ibicenco who had three runs in Australia during their maiden prep here during the spring.

Their last start produced a stakes win over the Melbourne Cup distance (3200m) when defeating a decent field in the Listed Sandown Cup in November.

Henderson named the $115,000 Group 3 Lord Mayors Cup (1615m) at Doomben on May 18, Doomben Cup Day, as the resuming run for Ibicenco who has come through their spell well.

“Ibicenco is working really well, he’s headed to Brisbane today and he’ll start in a 1600 metre race there on May 18,” he said.
