Welcome to OneSelection2Win Friday’s night mail for Group 1 Moir Stakes at Moonee Valley where we get to see the cash between Chautauqua and the Queensland marvel Buffering.
We have come up with our best bets for tonight’s meeting.
MOONEE VALLEY (NSW)
TRACK – (GOOD 4)
RACE 4 No: 8 AUNTY MO – Kept on giving to score over this course before spelling. Sure to be forward enough for her return to racing and the jockey knows her like the back of his hand. Loves this track. Winning chance.
RACE 5 No: 8 KACHING – Pulled out a big run to be placed at Caulfield last start where he was along way back in the field. He did sustain along run only to peak inside the last furlong. Does look to be a horse with plenty of upside. Will be closing late.
RACE 7 No: 1 BUFFERING – Warhorse sprinter that has won this race three times. Working well for his return to racing. Distance suits. Hard to catch.
RACE 8 No: 8 FAST CASH – Dropped out after a torrid trip four wide last start. Plenty to like about his efforts prior where he hit the line late to just miss, has options from a middle barrier. Go well.
THE ULTIMATE RACING EXPERIENCE
AL MAHER x HELL IT’S HOT 2YO COLT
‘Stellar colt, size, strength – Impossible to fault’
To be trained by: Gai Waterhouse (Randwick)
By the GROUP 1 AUSTRALIAN GUINEAS WINNER – AL MAHER – SIRE OF GROUP 1 WINNERS – DELICACY, ALMALAD, FAT AL & DIAMOND DRILLE
Out of HELL IT’S HOT – WINNER and PRODUCER of 4 FOALS to RACE FOR 4 WINNERS
GAI WATERHOUSE COMMENTS:
‘MAGNIFICENT, BIG, STRONG – SO TYPICAL OF THE AL MAHER BREED’
GAI LOVES this COLT and has TRAINED some of the BEST HORSES by AL MAHER including – DIAMOND DRILLE, FAT AL & ALMALAD all to GROUP 1 WINS!
When the name ‘Al Maher’ is mentioned to Gai, three words that feature prominently in her response are ‘toughness’, ‘honesty’ and ‘brilliance’. We talk about the value of a stallion ‘stamping their stock’ or passing on many of their own traits and I can think of no greater example of this than Al Maher. Winning over $1.1 million in prize money, which included a win in the Group 1 Australian Guineas, Al Maher raced consistently at the highest level. Trained by Gai, she knew exactly what it took to prepare this great colt and it has not stopped at Al Maher himself. He has produced three Group 1 winners, all trained by Gai. She has also trained King Lionheart and Pheidon to secure victory at Group 2 level. This feat is unmatched by any other trainer, she truly is the best at getting the most out of this family.
POWERFUL SPRINTER / MILER / MIDDLE DISTANCE COLT
GREAT STRENGTH, POWER with PLENTY OF BONE and MUSCLE
GOOD DEPTH of GIRTH for LUNG CAPACITY
ELIGIBLE for the LUCRATIVE INGLIS RACE SERIES
GOLDEN SLIPPER / GOLDEN ROSE / BLUE DIAMOND ELIGIBLE / NOMINATED
Mark Holland: ‘I love this colt – great mover, great shoulder, great hip to hock, presence and power’ – GAI should have another Group horse on her hands!
Scott Darby: ”Stellar colt, impossible to fault, size, strength, athleticism’ – One of the colt’s of the year!
Steven McIvor: ‘Lovely colt with good shoulder and forearm with plenty of bone to support, excellent hindquarters, athletic quality colt with presence, super walk’ – A must have colt the pick of the sale! (Straight to Gai Waterhouse)
