In-form combo share Moment To Remember
EAGLE Farm trainer Jeff Caught and Sunshine Coast-based rider Kelvin Wharton maintained their impressive recent run at the Gold Coast when Moment To Remember bolted in this afternoon.
Caught and Wharton completed the rare achievement of winning at four successive Gold Coast meetings when Moment To Remember ($2.50 fav) drew right away to win the Attwood Marshall Lawyers Class 1 Hcp (2200m) by 5-3/4 lengths. Soul Crusade ($3.60) battled home for second with a short half-head to Grab The Loot ($3.20) in third.
Leading Gold Coast trainer and jockey combinations have probably achieved the feat in the past, but it’s hard to remember an outside stable matching that achievement.
“And I’ll probably have a runner here next week, so hopefully we can make it five in a row,’’ said Caught, who has a team of 12 in work.
Caught and Wharton’s winning run at the Gold Coast began with Moment To Remember on May 12, then Aessex on May 19 and Zigurat last week.
Caught thinks Moment To Remember can develop into a good stayer next preparation and is eyeing a Sydney campaign in the spring.
“He’ll go for a spell now,’’ he said. “He ran okay in the Grand Prix in Brisbane last week, but I wanted him to finish this preparation on a high so I decided to run him in this Gold Coast race today.
“I think he can keep developing as a stayer and his owner Fred Peisah is keen for him to run in Sydney over the spring and we’ll see how he progresses.’’
Moment To Remember is by Valixar, who stands at Peisah’s Lomar Park Stud.
Valixar was a top European miler who beat Starcraft in the Group One Queen Anne Stakes at Royal Ascot.
