Mr Moet Joins Waller for Sydney Autumn Carnival 2014

Group 1 winning WA galloper Mr Moet will be prepared in Sydney for a stint next year by New South Wales’ top horseman Chris Waller for a shot at the 2014 Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival riches.

The gelding’s current Lark Hill-based trainer Adam Durrant announced on Radio Sports National this week his plans to send Mr Moet to Waller’s care early next year in the hopes they can win some top interstate races next prep.

A six-year-old son of Mosayter, Mr Moet has to date won 12 of their 36 career starts over $1.6 million in prize money.

They haven’t won a race in 12 months however with their latest turf triumph being the Group 2 CB Cox Stakes (2100m) at Ascot last December, a race they are nominated for again this Perth Summer Racing Carnival.

After their title defense there they will then join Waller, Durrant not tempted to stay on for a shot at the Perth Cup on New Year’s Day over the mile and a half, in a decision made by the trainer and the horse’s connections.

Of course Mr Moet’s biggest success came first-up last summer when they held off the likes of Luckygray (2nd) and Rosie Rocket (3rd) to take out the $1 million Group 1 Railway Stakes (1600m).

They were also second in last year’s $500,000 Group 1 Kingston Town Classic (1800m) one run later when Luckygray turned the tables, the duo to face off in the race again this Saturday.

Mr Moet is current third favourite in the Kingston Town Classic odds on the 11-horse field.

Markets are led by the now Trevor Andrews-trained Luckygray after they won their third Group 1 race on November 23 in the Railway Stakes over the mile.

They are followed by the young Ihtsahymn who steps up in class and distance after their win in the Group 2 WA Guineas (1600m) at Ascot on Railway Stakes Day.

Whatever happens in the remainder of their Perth runs this season, Mr Moet will leave home for the autumn and join the stables of Waller who broke the record with 167 ½ city winners last season.

This year Mr Moet had three runs during the Melbourne Festival of Racing, including their Group 1 CF Orr Stakes (1400m) third.

Sydney however will be the focus in 2014 for the staying type with something like the $400,000 Group 1 Ranvet Stakes (2000m) at Rosehill on March 22 looking a nice option.
