Moody on his star stayer: He’s a bloody tough horse
INCENTIVISE, Australia‘s most talked about racehorse, might also be our best.
Only Zaaki, coming out and beating a crack field in the Cox Plate – Australia’s best race – in three weeks’ time could rival Peter Moody’s now indomitable Caulfield and Melbourne Cup favourite.
While the hype and hope of a Flemington matchrace between Incentivise and Verry Elleegant failed to come to fruition, the $1m Group 1
Turnbull Stakes still delivered in spades.
The only thing missing really was the rumbling of a 20,000strong crowd.
Incentivise, with Brett Prebble aboard (pictured), gave them a chance on Saturday but the five-year-old former Toowoomba galloper, who has gone from a Sunshine Coast maiden to dual Group 1 winner in eight starts, absorbed the heat.
“He’s a bloody tough horse, isn’t he,” Moody said.
