Moody hasn't missed a beat since returning to training, he is currently boasting an impressive 32% winners to runners strike rate (from his last 50 runners - March 6, 2021). Moods has some exciting horses on display including LIGHTSABER recent Group 2 winner and OXLEY ROAD recent Group 3 winner.

'GREAT SIZE AND STRENGTH, GOOD BODY SHAPE, VERY CORRECT WITH A TERRIFIC ACTION'
We are so proud to announce the purchase of lot 809 – a colt by Merchant Navy out of a Group 2 winning Zabeel mare, So Pristine. This is what we call a ‘proper horse’, he has that real x-factor about him. He is very quick on his feet and is extremely athletic (watch video below of him galloping around the paddock)
This horse has an outstanding pedigree – his Mum SO PRISTINE was a Group 2 winner and trained by Peter Moody. His dad, MERCHANT NAVY was a Group 1 winner in both hemispheres. The horse passed his vet examinations, including a clinical examination, x-rays and scope. The vet described him as ‘A neat colt with a deep girth, good hindquarters'
From time to time you watch a horse and think – that’s a racehorse, they just have that presence about them. They are very agile, powerful and enthusiastic.
We believe our colt represents great value for our owners, he was a $150,000 purchase at the Magic Millions Gold Coast Yearling Sale.
Given he is an impressive type of horse and has an outstanding PROVEN pedigree page – we are so excited to have him join the 360 stable! This colt is also eligible for the VOBIS bonus' which is a great asset come racing time.
HE LOOKS LIKE HE WILL BE AN AUTUMN 2 YEAR OLD THAT WILL TRAIN ON TO BE A LOVELY 3 YEAR OLD TYPE'
A PROVEN CROSS
(Fastnet Rock / ZABEEL)
The FASTNET ROCK (Merchant Navy’s Dad) cross over ZABEEL line mares is a proven cross, producing 39 winners and 7 stakes winners.
This is considered an A+++ rating (the highest pedigree rating possible) this is the same cross as Group 1 winners ATLANTIC JEWEL, AVANTAGE, PLANET ROCK, RANGIPO, SEABROOK and most recently CHEQUERBOARD winning the Listed Tasmanian Oaks.
This colt is the half-brother to the 7 year old mare, SO WICKED trained by Chris Waller and currently has 7 wins and 9 placings with nearly $250,000 in prize money. His half-brother by TAVISTOCK is in training with Mick Price and we have been hearing some good things about him. SO PRISTINE is from the family of talented 3 year old filly, SWIFT WITNESS. This is a very active family which continues to produce performers at the highest level.
