Group 2 double for Vinery

Vinery sires completed a two state feature double on Saturday with outstanding mares More Joyous and Typhoon Tracy.

More Joyous (More Than Ready) maintained her marvellous strike-rate in the G2 Breeders Classic at Randwick.  She has won 11 of 15 starts and the only loss in her last 10 outings was in last year’s Cox Plate

Typhoon Tracy (Red Ransom) halted a losing streak with a G2 victory in the Orr Stakes at Caulfield.  The reigning Australian Horse of the Year had gone seven starts since winning the G1 Queen of the Turf Stakes at Rosehill in April 2010.  

Caulfield trainer Peter Moody celebrated Typhoon Tracy’s return to form with three-year-old stakes winners Miss Gai Flyer (Flying Spur) and Master Harry (Magic Albert).

Master Harry (Magic Albert) returned to the form that had many rating him one of Australia’s best two-year-olds last season when winning the G2 Royal Sovereign Stakes at Randwick.  He was a $100,000 buy from Kanangra Stud at the 2009 Inglis Classic Sale.

Master Harry won in quick time at Flemington last March but failed at his lone spring run on a wet track.  Moody applied the winkers for his first run in the reverse direction and the colt responded to defeat Audacious Spirit (Bel Esprit) and Skilled (Commands) in a blanket finish.

Moody will roll out champion mare Black Caviar in the G1 Lightning Stakes at Flemington this Saturday.  The Bel Esprit mare can give the Caulfield conditioner successive Horse of the Year titles if she maintains her unbeaten record during the autumn carnival.
