Co-owner Nick Williams believes that exciting European import Sea Moon ‘could be anything’ and will be a major player during the 2013 Spring Racing Carnival.

Sea Moon, who was bought by Macedon Lodge at the end of last year, is yet to make his Australian racing debut but has been talked about since his purchase as a contender for the 2013 Cox Plate (2040m) and Melbourne Cup (3200m).

The Beat Hollow entire has not raced since finishing eighth in the 2012 Prix De L’Arc De Triomphe (2400m) in France but has impressed Williams since arriving in Australia.

“He is a lovely horse, he is a very athletic individual and he could be anything,” Williams said on the Racing Ahead radio program.

“We are as excited about him as everybody else.”

Although he was originally considered a Melbourne Cup horse, Williams is confident that Sea Moon can perform at weight-for-age level, having beaten Dunaden, Red Cadeaux, Fiorente and Jakkalberry at level weights in Europe, and is on track for a tilt at the 2013 Cox Plate.

“He certainly is a Cox Plate horse and I think we can see from the way he won the Hardwicke Stakes, that at level weights he is a pretty good horse so assuming he acclimatizes ok he will run well,” Williams said.

Many racing experts are expecting big things from Sea Moon this spring but, after years of experience with imported horses, Williams expects him to improve the more time that he spends in Australia and thinks his best results could be achieved in 2014.

“One thing that I am sure off is that what you see from him in the spring, you’ll see better in the autumn and better again next spring,” the Melbourne Cup winner owner said.

“The thing with him that is a little bit misguided is that he has had three goes at Group 1 level over there and he has failed in them all.

“He actually hasn’t done it at Group 1 level yet but he is an exciting progressive horse.”
