Mid Summer Music Wins 2011 Cockram Stakes

August 15th, 2011

Peter Moody’s Mid Summer Music has continued her winning streak by claiming victory in the 2011 Cockram Stakes on Saturday August 13, 2011.

The six-year-old mare backed up her winning run in the Group 3 Blenchingly Stakes with almost a full length victory of the Group 3 Cockram Stakes field.

“She is unbelievable and she lifted the bar once again,” said Moody.

“I thought this was a far superior race to her last run at weight for age as silly as it sounds and she has a great knack being there at the right time.

“She is a real plain Jane but has an unbelievable will to win and you can’t deny her she has an unbelievable motor too.”

Jockey Ben Melham filled in for the suspended Luke Nolen to ride Mid Summer Music to her ninth career win.

“Peter has done a really good job with this horse and has placed her really well and although she is coming back to mare’s grade today it was probably her toughest test yet,” Melham said.

“She settled really well in the run and once I got her out she really accelerated to the line.

“I knew once I got her out she would show her blistering turn of foot.”

Moody is yet to decide on a spring path for the talented Oamaru Force mare.

“We will let her guide us,” he said.

“We just sought of swam and ponied her for a week after her last run and she has only had the saddle on her back two or three times since that so we will look at a similar routine see (and)what comes up for her next.”

Parables finished second in the 2011 Cockram Stakes and Anabaa’s Legacy rounded out the placings for third.
