The final field and barrier draw has been release for the Group 3 Cockram Stakes that will take place at Caulfield Racecourse this Saturday August 13, 2011.
The Cockram Stakes 2011 will take place over a distance of 1,200 metres and under set-weight plus penalty conditions.
Open to mares aged four-years-old and upwards only, the 2011 Cockram Stakes is worth $125,000 in prize money.
15 horses have accepted to run in the 2011 Cockram Stakes, including Peter Moody’s Mid Summer Music.
Moody admits that he didn’t have faith in the speedy six-year-old mare early on in her racing career.
“It has been a tremendous ride,” Moody said.
“I’ve got to hand up – she won her maiden at Warracknabeal and I thought she might have had her birthday.
“But thankfully at the insistence of Linda Meech and John Ivall, who is a friend of all the owners, suggested to me there was much more in her than I saw.
“Low and behold here we are 18 months later winning a weight-for-age Group 3.”
Moody feels that Mid Summer Music’s win by a nose in the $125,000 Blenchingly Stakes was the product of her drive to win.
“At no stage until the last three strides was she ever going to win the race but she’s got an unbelievable will to win and she belies her ability with her will to win,” Moody said.
“She’s got to have a crack at a race like the Cockram.
“She’s in great form and its six furlongs around (Caulfield).
“I think… she showed that she doesn’t need a swamp to win on which is pleasing and she’s shown in the summer her form is competitive so she’s earned a chance at the Cockram.”
Mid Summer Music has drawn barrier six in the Cockram Stakes and will be ridden by jockey Ben Melham.
Also included in the Cockram Stakes final field and barrier draw is Michael Moroney’s Brazilian Pulse, Greg Eurell’s Pinker Pinker and Darren Weir’s Rue Maple.
