Hinchinbrook Switch To Moody Melb Stable
Gr3-winning & Gr1-placed 3YO colt Hinchinbrook (Fastnet Rock-Snippets' Lass, by Snippets) has been moved from Gerald Ryan's stable at Rosehill Gardens in Sydney to Peter Moody at Caulfield in Melbourne to target Victoria's major Autumn sprints (including the Gr1 Lightning Stakes, Gr1 Oakleigh Plate & Gr1 Newmarket Handicap). Last season Moody prepared another 3YO Sydney sprinter Wanted (Fastnet Rock-Fragmentation, by Snippets) to victory in the Gr1 Newmarket plus placings in 3 other Gr1 races. Hinchinbrook (a 3/4-brother to Gr1-winning Arrowfield Stud stallion Snitzel) currently boasts 2 wins (in March's Gr3 Skyline Stakes over 1200m at Randwick & February's Listed Canonbury Stakes over 1100m at Randwick) & 4 placings (in October's Listed Governor Macquarie Cup over 1200m at Randwick, September's Listed Heritage Stakes over 1200m at Rosehill, April's Gr1 Inglis AJC Sires' Produce Stakes over 1400m at Randwick & March's Gr2 Pago Pago Stakes over 1200m at Rosehill) from 9 starts for $389,300 earnings.
