Daniel Moor set for Singapore stint

The hectic schedule of racing in Victoria has resulted in jockey Daniel Moor heading overseas for a ‘working holiday’.

Moor will plie his trade in Singapore for the next two months, although he may extend that, if granted by Singapore authorities, by a few weeks after his work permit was delayed.

Success aboard Jigsaw in the Listed Hareeba Stakes (1200m) at Mornington last Saturday will see Moor head off to South-East Asia in peak form.

“I haven’t had a decent break since coming back from Hong Kong so I’m looking forward to having a breather, a working holiday,” Moor said.

“It’s good that the time that I am there will be for the Kranji Mile and a couple of legs of the Three-Year-Old Series, so there’s some nice races coming up.

“I’ve picked up some nice rides there already, so hopefully I can hit the ground running.”

A number of trainers that Moor rides for in Victoria were surprised that he had decided to head to Singapore at this time of year.

But once Moor explained that he had been riding constantly since returning from Hong Kong 12 months ago, they understood.

“It’s pretty full-on racing here now,” Moor said.

“Everyone knows that, and I just think if you have a finish line throughout the year you generally come back fresher and ready to go.

“I’m licenced until the end of June (in Singapore), but we’ll wait and see what happens.

“With the delay in the work permit, they may be a little receptive of me staying on a little bit longer.

“But then I don’t want to leave it too long as the spring horses will be coming back in and getting ready to jump-out and a few of the babies will be getting ready in mid to late August.

“So, I want to be back for that.”

Moor said he may make a hit-and-run visit to the Adelaide Carnival to ride at South Australian Derby meeting at Morphettville on May 13.

He said Trent Busuttin and Natalie Young may have a couple of starters while Impending Link, a winner at Pakenham last week, may head in that direction.

“There are airlines that fly straight into Adelaide from Singapore, so that’s not logistically impossible,” Moor said.

“There’s still a lot of water to go under the bridge and the horses have to come through their next runs well, but they’re some options at this point.”
