​Former trainer Peter Moody reluctant to compare galloping greats

FORMER trainer Peter Moody has shied away from comparisons between his super mare Black Caviar and the all-conquering Winx.

“Let’s just enjoy her (Winx) for what she is and pick up the history books to read about the other the bastard,” Moody said at the Albury Gold Cup Carnival launch on Friday.

Black Caviar was unbeaten in 25 races including 15 Group One wins while Winx notched up her 16th major victory by taking out the Group 1 Chipping Norton Stakes at Randwick last weekend.

“It’s hard not to suggest she can keep going on her win the other day,” Moody said.

Moody said the Albury carnival had gone from strength to strength during his time in racing.

“The carnival is well-known everywhere,” he said.

“I probably came here for the first time 15 years ago and it’s certainly gone ahead.”

The carnival opens on March 18, with the running of the $40,000 Albury Mile before the Albury Gold Cup meeting on March 23.
