Who is 2013 Melbourne Cup Betting Fancy Sea Moon?

At $11 in 2013 Melbourne Cup betting, Sea Moon is undeniably one of the early favourites for Australia’s biggest race.

In the Melbourne Cup market, Sea Moon shares the second line of betting with Mount Athos and Fiorente while Puissance De Lune is a $9 favourite.

The other three have all raced on Australian soil, Mount Athos and Fiorente both ran in last year’s cup, but Sea Moon is still yet to step out here.

So just who is this stayer who is considered a key Melbourne Cup chance?

Background

Sea Moon is a British import who is a recent addition to prominent owner Lloyd Williams’ strong team. Formerly trained by Sir Michael Stoute in the UK, the five-year-old was bred by Khalid Abdullah from Juddmonte Farms. He is by Beat Hollow out of Eva Luna.

Key Stats/Info

  • Trainer: Robert Hickmott
  • Age: 5YO
  • Sex: Horse
  • Breeding: By Beat Hollow out of Eva Luna
  • Career Record: 10-5:2:1

Career Highlights

  • Winning 2012 Group 2 Hardwicke Stakes at Royal Ascot
  • Second 2011 Group 1 Breeders’ Cup at Churchill Downs
  • Third 2011 Group 1 English St Leger at Doncaster

Melbourne Cup Chances

Lloyd Williams devotes his life to winning the Melbourne Cup and he has done so four times, including last year with Green Moon. This certainly looks the best of his chances this year. There is a school of thought that he would be a lot shorter in the market if he had raced in Australia already.

His win in the Hardwicke Stakes last year was a 3 1/2 length romp ahead of 2011 Melbourne Cup quinella Dunaden and Red Cadeaux. His Breeders’ Cup second came behind the brilliant St Nicholas Abbey so there is no denying his star quality.
