Moody Could Saddle Duo in 2015 Australia Stakes

This weekend sees the return of Group Racing in Australia with the Group 2 Australia Stakes (1200m) running at Moonee Valley on Saturday.

Nominations for the sprint race have yet to be released but reigning champion Richie’s Vibe and Smokin’ Joey have already been confirmed as possible starts by their respective trainers.

Joining the pair could be two of Peter Moody’s horses as the trainer is considering running both Dissident and Moment Of Change in the 2015 Australia Stakes.

Moody revealed to TVN on Monday morning that he would nominate both Group One winners for the race before assessing their respective conditions as well as the make-up of the race’s field later in the week before making a final decision.

Both horses pleased Moody in a track gallop at Caulfield this morning.

“I’ll look at the make-up of the race and make a decision then,” Moody said.

“I’m mindful now that Dissident has been sold as a stallion every race performance counts.

“Moment Of Change is coming off a freshen up after Perth, we’ll just see how he is as the week unfolds.”

Four-year-old entire Dissident enjoyed three consecutive wins in the spring after taking out the Group 1 Memsie Stakes (1400m) by two and a half lengths first up as well as the Group 1 Makybe Diva Stakes (1600m) and Group 1 Sir Rupert Clarke Charity Cup (1400m) – both of which were won by a nose.

He bled for the first time in the Group 1 Caulfield Stakes (2000m) on October 11 in which in finished midfield and was subsequently banned for three months.

Dissident is set to possibly return to racing in the $200,000 Australia Stakes on Saturday with the Group 1 CF Orr Stakes (1400m) at Caulfield Racecourse on February 14 his next potential start, kicking off his autumn campaign.

Moment Of Change finished dead last in the Memsie Stakes first up in the spring before finishing outside the placings a further two times in the Group 1 Manikato Stakes (1200m) and Group 1 Darley Classic (1200m).

Moody decided to send the six-year-old gelding to Perth during the summer for the Group 1 Winterbottom Stakes (1200m) yet the local talent proved too good with Moment Of Change finishing sixth.

The gelding could resume in the Listed WJ Adams Stakes (1000m) at Sandown on Monday if the Australia Stakes doesn’t pan out.

Check back at for the 2015 Australia Stakes nominations when they are released later this morning.
