2015 All Aged Stakes Winner Dissident Bows Out a Champ

Peter Moody’s elite racehorse Dissident proved as good a horse as his trainer has always spruiked him as, winning his fifth Group 1 to bow out a winner and head to the breeding barn on the back of his All Aged Stakes 2015 win at Royal Randwick.

It was a star-studded edition of the $400,000 Group 1 Schweppes All Aged Stakes (1400m), the final Group 1 of the Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival, featuring an individual 10 Group 1 winners.

One of those was Moody’s Sebring stallion Dissident, the four-year-old having his swansong race with veteran hoop Jimmy Cassidy jumping on for the final ride.

Last seen in the winner’s stall on February 14 to take his Group 1 tally to four in the CF Orr Stakes at Caulfield, Dissident’s lead-up into the All Aged was in the Futurity Stakes also run over the 1400m at Caulfield where he ran third.

He wasn’t at his best that day and was somewhat disappointing, but in Sydney today his class shone through and he well and truly staked his claims for the upcoming Horse of the Year honours winning his seventh race at start number 21 to boost his winnings up over the $2 million mark.

“He’s never got the accolades this colt,” Moody said.

“He’s raced in Group level from day one.

“Now he’s won five Group 1s, won his first and won his last.

“I was really pleased with him.

“I’ve had the pleasure of retiring three Group 1 winners – Typhoon Tracy, Black Caviar and Dissident – and two of them won Horse of the Year.

“Now this bloke’s put his hand up to be number three.”

It was the Gai Waterhouse-trained Australian Guineas winner Wandjina who won the break away from the barriers moving to the front with Dissident also quick to surge forward launching a two-horse rivalry in the All Aged that would go right to the finishing post.

Race favourite, last start TJ Smith Stakes winner Chautauqua was also handy early from the inside alley punching through on the rails.

It was three-year-old Wandjina though taking the lead from Dissident who went up to sit on the outside of the frontrunner, another youngster Shooting To Win driving through to sit third.

On the turn the in-form Snitzel colt Wandjina, after his third win on the trot, led them round while the Team Hawkes-trained Chautauqua was out wide in fourth and William Reid Stakes winner Lucky Hussler sat widest on the bend for home.

Wandjina ($7.50) and his hoop Damien Oliver raced up and fought it out with Dissident ($10) to the line, the older horse putting his head down to overhaul Waterhouse’s young gun and score a narrow win to retire on, while Chautauqua ($3.10) held for third.

Unable to get a ride on Doncaster Day, 52-year-old Cassidy saved his success to the tail end of the carnival but did a great job to win the Sydney Cup on Chris Waller’s roughie Grand Marshal last Saturday.

He made it two Group 1s in as many weeks then with an emotional victory with Dissident, a fitting finish to the day for Moody who brought three runners to Sydney for three wins including both Group 1s after his filly Pasadena Girl won the Champagne Stakes earlier on the card.

“Clickety-clack the old boy’s back,” Cassidy said.

“I love this horse. He really turned things around as a three-year-old when he come up here.

“Pete’s done a great job with him.

“I think I felt more pressure today to go out on a winning note.

“So it’s a special day.”
