Inglis Guineas Dominance Continues
9th Oct 2010
The combination of Widden Stud graduates at an Inglis sale struck again in the Melbourne Racing Club’s three-year-old classic today, when Anacheeva made full use of barrier one to win the $1million Group 1 Caulfield Guineas.
In other key Inglis wins today: Black Caviar ($210,000 Premier) made it six from six in the Schillaci Stakes and Exploitable Doubt ($8500 Scone) indicated he was a horse of the future with an explosive win at Rosehill.
The win by Anacheeva gives Inglis graduates seven of the past nine winners in the 1600m feature, including the past four with Weekend Hussler ($80,000 Premier), Whobegotyou ($19,500 Classic) and Starspangledbanner ($120,000 Premier) preceding today’s hero.
ANACHEEVA ($110,000 2009 Easter, 3c Anabaa-Monroe Magic) is a full-brother to the AJC Derby winner Headturner and remains unbeaten in three starts this preparation.
He followed Black Caviar in providing the Peter Moody-Luke Nolen combination a double in feature races with Inglis graduates today, following the earlier Schillaci Stakes win by glamour speedster Black Caviar.
Anacheeva was prepared for sale by Widden Stud, who have built a formidable record in the Caulfield Guineas over the past decade. Widden also sold Whobegotyou and 2002 winner Helenus ($80,000 Easter).
Moody said he had received poor vet reports on Anacheeva's xrays, but decided to take a chance regardless and for that reason he secured the well-related colt for what has turned out to be an absolute bargain. "I thought he looked a nice athletic horse, so we took a chance with him," he said.
The trainer will give consideration to a start in the Coolmore Stud Stakes (1200m) at Flemington later this month, but his main focus is now on winning the Australian Guineas and Randwick Guineas next autumn.
Glamour Girl back with a bang
Unbeaten mare Black Caviar threw down the gauntlet to Hay List when making an effortless winning return at Caulfield today.
BLACK CAVIAR ($210,000 2008 Premier, 4m Bel Esprit-Helsinge) surely rates as the best horse in Australia not to have won at Group 1 level, but Peter Moody is keen to amend that anomaly after she dominated today’s Group 2 Schillaci Stakes (1000m).
A graduate of Swettenham Stud, Black Caviar is now the winner of six from six for earnings topping $600,000.
Moody is now eyeing off a clash with sprint sensation Hay List, with the pair set to meet at Moonee Valley on Cox Plate day or a fortnight later in the Group 1 Patinack at Flemington.
Scone Steal Remains Unbeaten
Exploitable Doubt kept his unbeaten record intact and set up a tilt at a $100,000 Inglis Race Series bonus when he romped home at Rosehill today.
EXPLOITABLE DOUBT ($8,500 2009 Scone, 3c Not A Single Doubt-Exploits) had won his previous two outings by a combined nine lengths at Scone and had no trouble transferring that form to the city when leading his rivals a merry dance over 1400m today.
Trainer Rodney Northam is now eyeing off next week’s 1600m 3yo $100,000 Inglis Race Series bonus at Randwick for the unbeaten youngster.
The same race proved an excellent form reference last year, with All Legal beating subsequent stakes winner Turf Express and Group 1 Rosehill Guineas victor Zabrasive.
