Moroney goes out a win­ner

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - - RACEDAY PREVIEW - MATT JONES

KERRIN McEvoy pre­vailed in the last race of the day at Royal Rand­wick with Tribal Wis­dom — which was also a farewell for trainer Michael Moroney.

The top trainer closed his Rand­wick sta­bles through the week and it was fit­ting he leaves Syd­ney a win­ner.

“It’s nice to get a win­ner for Michael now they’re fin­ish­ing up their sta­ble here,” McEvoy said. But pun­ters would have felt sick as the heav­ily-backed Os­borne Bulls fell a stride short, los­ing by a half-head.

“We got the right run in a race that looked right for him on pa­per,” McEvoy said.

Moroney will now set Tribal Wis­dom for the Group 1 Strad­broke Hand­i­cap in Bris­bane.

McEvoy said he would need to im­prove but he would be a good value hope. “He’ll ob­vi­ously get in there with a nice low weight,’’ he said.
