Moody Targets Last Adelaide Feature of the Season

Not content with winning the Victorian trainers premiership, Peter Moody will now also target the final listed race of the season in Adelaide.

Moody will take three year old fillies Flokkati and Kulgrinda to Morphettville to run in the listed Reliance Petroleum Stakes over 1050m.

Moody said he thought both fillies had a realistic chance in that race, but it was Kulgrinda who’s prospects he is especially excited about.

“It’s a race we’ve had in mind for both her (Kulgrinda) and Flokkati, but there is a bit of an x factor about Kulgrinda and she could be a genuine spring player, at least in the mares races,” Moody said.

“She has drawn a little awkwardly but there’s a tonne of speed. She’s probably going to be four deep but hopefully with a bit of cover behind the speed.

“She’s going super and she will run very well.”

Kulgrinda finished second at her only start at Morphettville, narrowly going down to the talented Tropic Thunder, while she produced a nice run in a higher grade when she was fourth at Flemington behind Panipique last start.

Flokkati will be having her first start in a race since she finished dead last in the Gold Coast Guineas in May, however Moody is confident that she will improve.

Earlier in her career she won a stakes race at Caulfield over 1000m, beating home the likes of Warm Love and Enjin Numner Nine. If she can reproduce that form in Adelaide she will be in with a winning chance.

With Luke Nolen in Melbourne Moody has entrusted Linda Meech to ride Kulgrinda while Luke Currie will be aboard Flokkati.

Kulgrinda is currently rated a $5.00 chance in the Reliance Petroleum Stakes, while her stablemate Flokkati is being quoted at $15.00. the David Balfour trained Obsidian Dragon is favourite at $4.60.

It is worth noting that Moody has opted to send Meech to Adelaide and keep kiwi apprentice Daniel Stackhouse in Melbourne. Such is Moody’s opinion of the young Kiwi hoop, he has even received the plumb ride aboard Mr Make Believe.
