Floria Outstays Boys for 2014 Brisbane Cup Result

A nice drop back in weight gave Peter Moody’s in-form mare Floria the advantage she needed to outstay the boys in her first mile and a half run in today’s Brisbane Cup 2014 at Eagle Farm Racecourse.

The six-year-old Savabeel mare went into the $300,000 Group 2 Croser Brisbane Cup (2400m), the race bringing the Stradbroke Handicap Day action to an end, on the back of a third at the track last weekend.

There she was beaten two and a half lengths by the Chris Waller-trained winner Moriarty in the Group 2 Eagle Farm Cup (2200m) when carrying 57kg.

She dropped right back to 53kg though for the Brisbane Cup where she was able to hold off and run away from the defending champ, her last start conqueror Moriarty, with Kerrin McEvoy replacing Luke Nolen in the saddle.

“It was my first ride on the mare,” McEvoy said.

“And thanks to Pete for putting me on.

“It’s nice to have a winner, she’s been running well.

“It was her first try at the trip and she dropped nicely down in weights today.”

Moriarty had 59kg in the Eagle Farm Cup seven days ago but went up carrying the 59.5kg top weight for their Brisbane Cup title defense.

They went up early and got a lovely run between horses sitting about sixth in a fast edition of the race, good speed on as the leaders Skysoblue and Zennista really put the foot down with 1200m left to go.

It was a well-run race and the speed was another advantage for Floria giving the back runners no real chance.

“It was game on from the thousand and that really played into her hands,” McEvoy said.

“She needs to wind up and that’s how the race panned out for her today.”

Nash Rawiller got Moriarty into the race on the back of Floria and looked like he was going to get to her and go back-to-back in the feature.

Their big weight proved too much of a burden for them in the end however as they were unable to catch the nicely priced Brisbane Cup winner Floria ($8.50) and her hoop McEvoy who ran away to win.

“To her credit she was really strong in the end,” McEvoy added.

“We dug deep and it was nice to get a win.”

Race favourite Zerphyron, the Hawkes-trained five-year-old coming off a Group 3 Premier’s Cup victory over the 2200m at Doomben, was also flat to finish with their 55.5kg not responding when Glen Boss hit the button running a well-beaten third.

Floria has now won five of her 37 career starts, the Brisbane Cup victory her first since the Group 3 Summoned Stakes (1600m) at Caulfield last November.

It was also Moody’s second win in the feature in three years after Lights Of Heaven won back in 2012.

“This is our second Brisbane Cup in three years so this is great,” Brian Hibbard, who looks after Moody’s horses in Queensland, said.

“She’s tough and she’s genuine.

“She’s been to Adelaide, Sydney and up here.

“She’s a lovely mare and she does everything right.”

It’s a record she could get the chance to add to in the $200,000 Listed Caloundra Cup (2400m) on the Sunshine Cost on June 28 now she’s proven she can last the distance.

“We weren’t sure if she stays the mile and a half but she does,” Hibbard said.

“She’s doing well.

“Caloundra Cup (next). It’s Peter’s decision but we might as well giver her one more run she’s doing well.”
