Spirits Dance Wins 2014 Angus Armanasco Stakes – Results

Spirits Dance has held on to win the Group 2 Angus Armanasco Stakes at Caulfield Racecourse today February 22, 2014.

Spirits Dance was paying generous odds of $5.50 to win the race at Ladbrokes.com.au.

The Statue Of Liberty filly has now won five of her 10 race starts and has earned more than $330,00 in prize money during her horse race career.

Trainer Peter Moody was at the track to watch her dominant performance in the 2014 Angus Armanasco Stakes.

Moody admitted to being concerned when he saw that Spirits Dance was not the favourite for the race despite her form.

“You start believing maybe something’s wrong,” he said.

“She’s had a pretty long prep. She’s carried a few little niggles. So Today’s win is) very deserved.

“I just wish I was a punter.”

Spirits Dance has now won all four of her race starts this preparation.

“She’s always shown us very good ability but it just took her a little while to put it together,” Moody said.

“She’s come back and hasn’t looked back.”

The trainer was thrilled with jockey Chad Schofield’s winning ride aboard Spirits Dance in the 2014 Angus Armanasco Stakes.

“Obviously he’s a great young talent,” he said.

“He put her in a position to win the race.

“So I’m sure there’s plenty more ahead of him”

Schofield was equally pleased with Spirits Dance’s efforts in today’s Group 2 event.

“She’s got this terrific trait when you ask her to go she pins her ears back and surges,” Schofield said.

“I pinged her out of the gates today. I was just happy with the way she relaxed.

“She’s a pretty nice filly.”
