Boom Time for Moody in 2015 Queensland Derby

Queensland born, Melbourne based horseman Peter Moody will take over the preparation of Trevor Andrews’ WA galloper Boom Time for a shot at the Queensland Derby 2015 in Brisbane this winter.

A winner of just one of his 14 career starts to date when breaking his maiden status at start number 13 in the Listed Melvista Stakes (2200m) on March 28, Flying Spur colt Boom Time raced in his first Group race last Saturday.

Jumping from barrier four of 12 with his Melvista Stakes winning jockey Shaun McGruddy in the saddle again, Boom Time finished a brave third to the Bob Peters-owned daughter of Al Maher Delicacy in the Group 2 WATC Derby (2400m) at Ascot.

While on paper Boom Time was beaten two and a quarter lengths, his owner Kim Loxton said it was better than it looked with improvement expected later this season.

“It was 5-½ lengths to the fourth horse,” Loxton told the West Australian.

“He was fired up early and it was a great run under the circumstances.”

Based on the brave run behind the WA Oaks – WATC Derby double winning filly then, connections will send the up-and-comer to Moody’s care with an eye on the $600,000 Group 1 Queensland Derby (2200m) at Doomben Racecourse on Stradbroke Handicap Day, June 6.

“He will go down to the farm for a week on the grass and then fly across to Melbourne next week,” Loxton said.

“Peter (Moody) looked at the replay yesterday and he was very impressed by the run.”

The Brisbane Winter Racing Carnival feature is a race Moody boasts two previous wins in with Riva San (2008) and Brambles (2012) both saluting in the classic when it was held at Eagle Farm, a course currently undergoing a lengthy upgrade.

The traditional lead-up to the Queensland Derby, producing four winners in the past 10 years, is the $150,000 Group 3 Grand Prix Stakes (2000m) run on Doomben 10,000 Day this year on May 23.

That’s an almost certain target then for Boom Time before the Group 1, the Grand Prix Stakes – Queensland Derby double last achieved by Hawkspur (2013) who was the second in as many years to do the double following on from Moody’s aforementioned Brambles in 2012.
