Australian Racing - Racing: Moody hopes Brereton can return with win

Brereton will make his return to the racetrack on Saturday when he lines up in the Dalrello Stakes at Eagle Farm.

The Peter Moody-trained gelding has not been seen for the last five months but will aim to make his return a winning one and is a 9/2 for the Listed contest over 1000 metres.

Positive start for Brereton

Brereton came home second on debut when competing at Caulfield on 9th October, 2021 and he followed that up with a victory at Flemington on 2nd November.

However, the two-year-old was well off the pace when last seen, coming home fourth of nine at Caulfield over 1000m on 27th November.

Brereton back to fitness

An injury kept Brereton out of action in the meantime but Moody has revealed his charge is raring to get back at it as they set their sights on Saturday's Dalrello Stakes.

"He actually twisted an ankle and we had to give him an extended spell," Moody said on his podcast, Moody On The Mic.

"Our hope was to have him back in training for the Blue Diamond and Blue Diamond Prelude, but we had to give him a little bit longer off.

"We didn't fancy going to Sydney for the Heavy '28s', so we've brought him up to Brisbane in the hope that we get a couple of nice firm decks to kick him off on.

"He's probably slightly vulnerable just condition-wise because he's a rotund galloper, like his trainer but, like his trainer, he's tough, so he'll have a crack," the trainer joked.

"It's going to be one from barrier to box with some of these fast Queensland horses. Don't know the locals at all but respect them; when you're playing in their backyard, you've got to respect them."
