Peter Moody plans next move with I Wish I Win

Peter Moody is considering a trip to the races with his Everest contender I Wish I Win.

The second favourite for the $20 million race over 1200m at Randwick on October 14, may be seen at either Caulfield on Saturday or Flemington on Sunday.

Moody said there was also the option of a jump-out at Cranbourne for I Wish I Win on Monday week.

I Wish I Win came through his solitary run ahead of the The Everest in excellent shape when third to Mr Brightside in the Group 1 Memsie Stakes (1400m) at Caulfield on September 2.

With no suitable race in the lead-up to The Everest 2023, Moody is planning on an exhibition gallop or jump-out with the sprinter.

“I want to give him a trip away from home,” Moody said.

“I’d probably favour one at Caulfield on Saturday, a little spin around with a mate from home.”

Moody said he had made the right decision in electing to bypass the Group 2 McEwen Stakes (1000m) at Moonee Valley last week.

New Zealand mare Imperatriz won the race after sitting back in the field while there was plenty of criticism over the ride of Craig Williams on Giga Kick.

Giga Kick, The Everest favourite, reeled off some blistering mid-race sectionals after missing the start much to the ire of the connections of the sprinter which in-turn led to the sacking of Williams.

James Mcdonald will now ride Giga Kick in his lead-up to The Everest, the Group 2 Premiere Stakes (1200m) at Randwick on September 30.

Moody said he learned his lesson after I Wish I Win started his autumn campaign finishing second in the Group 1 Lightning Stakes (1000m) at Flemington.

I Wish I Win later went on to claim the Group 1 TJ Smith (1200m) at Randwick.

“I’m not knocking Giga Kick, but it was always going to be a fast run race and I’ve got no doubt all those horses would have pulled up feeling the race more than my bloke did,” Moody said.

“They went 1000 metres in 56-½ (seconds), and they just went the whole way.

“The mare looked super impressive in winning it, but it’s a bit like Black Caviar, when you’re running those times, I don’t care how easy it looks, it takes it out of them.

“That’s what happened to him (I Wish I Win) in the Lightning Stakes and that’s why I didn’t run in a 1000-metre race this time.”
