He has raced over the two miles of the Melbourne Cup as well as the 1350 metres of the Doomben 10,000 but the 2013 Cox Plate (2040m) will be the Melbourne Spring Carnival target for versatile European import My Quest For Peace.

OTI Racing Director Terry Henderson announced yesterday that My Quest For Peace will return to the stable of Peter Moody next week and begin preparations for a spring campaign that is set to kick off in the Group 1 Makybe Diva Stakes (1600m) at Flemington on September 7th.

My Quest For Peace has raced exclusively at Group 1 level since coming to Australia in October last year and has been far from disgraced; finishing fifth in the Caulfield Cup (2400m), tenth in the Melbourne Cup (3200m), seventh in the Doomben 10,000 (1350m) before a disappointing fifteenth in the Stradbroke Handicap (1400m).

Henderson believes that My Quest For Peace has the turn of foot required to be a Cox Plate contender and said the Galileo five-year-old possesses more speed than stablemate and triple Group 1 winner Manighar.

“My Quest For Peace is a very serious horse and whether he measures up to Cox Plate standard will depend on how he goes in a race like the Makybe Diva Stakes,” Henderson told Racing Victoria.

“He’s got a very good turn of foot and he’s probably the fastest international horse that we’ve owned.

“He’ll have to measure up and win one of those lead up races but the Cox Plate is certainly looming as a real target for him.”

Henderson added that stablemates Manighar and Lidari would return to Peter Moody next week with Manighar also expected to begin his campaign in the Makybe Diva Stakes.
