Caught ponders Derby tilt
BRISBANE three-year-old Moment To Remember could be bound for a Queensland Derby start next month after breaking through for his new trainer Jeff Caught at the Gold Coast today.
Formerly trained at Warwick Farm by Bill Prain, Moment To Remember was having his second start for Caught in today’s Ladies In Racing Maiden Plate (1800m).
Ridden today by Kelvin Wharton, Moment To Remember ($6.50) settled back in the field but finished powerfully for an easy 1-1/4 length win over Oriental Grace ($9) with 2-1/2 lengths to Warlady ($11) in third.
Caught said Moment To Remember would take an ‘easy path’ to a possible start in the $500,000 Queensland Derby (2400m) at Eagle Farm on June 9.
“There’s a 2200m midweek race for three-year-olds in Brisbane about 10 days before the Derby that he’ll run in next and we’ll see what happens after that,’’ said Caught.
“The Derby’s a tough ask, but it may fall away a bit and at least this is a three-year-old that can stay and that’s half the battle.’’
Moment To Remember, by the former top European miler Valixir, is raced by breeder Fred Peisah and his Lomar Park Stud syndicate.
