Trainer Peter Moody has ten fillies nominated for the Thousand Guineas

Peter Moody is well represented in the Thousand Guineas nominations that were released earlier today.

The trainer has ten of the total 223 nominations for the $500,000 race during the Caulfield Racing Carnival.

Headlining his representatives is Hallowell Belle, who finished second in the Group 1 Blue Diamond Stakes behind Sepoy in February.

The talented three-year-old has been unlucky to place in all three of her race starts, but while never having won a race has already accrued more than $211,000 in prize money.

Moody has also nominated Metonymy, who finished fourth in the Blue Diamond before finishing second by a nose behind Triple Asset in the Group 3 Thoroughbred Breeders Stakes last start.

Cute Emily, Plucky Belle, Torah and Fume Blanc are also amongst the Moody’s Thousand Guineas nominations.

Also included in the nominations is John McArdle’s And Rock who won her first race at Sandown last week.

“We have always thought she might be a Thousand Guineas filly,” syndicator Rob Slade of Slade Bloodstock said.

“She has always shown us quite a bit.

“I don’t think she really handled the heavy ground as good as what she might have today but she was still too good for them.

“Being out of a Grand Lodge mare we thought she would get at least a mile (1600m) and hopefully a lot further.

“She relaxes in her races early and runs on well and there is certainly plenty of upside to her.”

Peter Snowden’s Anise and Robert Smerdon’s Mosheen have also been nominated for the Thousand Guineas.
