Moore wants both Vivas to go Down Under

Murray Bell   racing.scmp.com/freeservice/news    

Trainer John Moore wants Viva Macau to join Champions & Chater hero Viva Pataca on a raid Down Under later this year.
Viva Macau ran third to his celebrated stablemate in Sunday's feature at Sha Tin and Moore believes he would be ideally suited for the Caulfield Cup in Melbourne.

"When I get back to Hong Kong, I'd like to talk to Dr Ho [owner Stanley Ho Hung-sun] about taking Viva Macau to Australia as well," said Moore, who suffered a double disappointment in the Yasuda Kinen in Tokyo with Joyful Winner (ninth) and Able One (12th). "While Viva Pataca is suited to taking on the best in the Cox Plate, I think Viva Macau would be well placed in the Caulfield Cup.

"It's a race over 2,400 metres under handicap conditions and as Viva Macau is not a Group One winner, he would be reasonably handicapped.

"The main thing, to my way of thinking, is that the softer conditions under foot would really suit Viva Macau. He's just starting to come good, he's looking better in the coat and a mile-and-a-half under handicap conditions in October, with some cushion in the track, could be just ideal for him."

Moore said his plans remained firm for Viva Pataca after his record-shattering drubbing of arch-rival Vengeance Of Rain.

Moore said the astonishing victory, in which Viva Pataca thrashed the Dubai Sheema Classic hero by 3 1/4 lengths in course record time of 2:24.6, had not prompted him to head to England for the weight-for-age championship, the King George VI & Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Stakes (2,400m) at Ascot in late July.

"I know [jockey] Mick Kinane said he could possibly win a race like that but our plans remain firm - the Cox Plate in Melbourne is the race we're after," Moore said.

Hong Kong star Viva Pataca for Cox Plate 

6 June
By Rob Burnet   www.thoroughbrednews.co.nz
 
Hong Kong trainer John Moore confirmed on Wednesday that he is dispatching two stars from his stable to Melbourne for the 2007 Tattersalls Cox Plate (2040m) the target of the campaign.

Moore will send five-year-old Viva Pataca (Marju), the winner of Sunday’s HK Group I Hong Kong Champions & Chater Cup (2400m), the third leg of the Hong Kong Triple Crown Series, along with third place getting and stable-mate Viva Macau to Melbourne.

“If everything goes well up to August with them we will send him down with his work-mate in the second or third week of August,” said Moore.

“At the moment we are trying to get Australian staff together as I will not send my stable staff. We will have two weeks at Sandown and then shift to Caulfield.

“He has taken time to hit his straps as he had a virus which took its toll. I have been very patient with him and it has paid off,” he said.

Moore’s stable had a virus earlier in the Hong Kong season from UK horses who entered the stable.

Viva Pataca and Michael Kinane - picture Hong Kong Jockey Club.

Moore said that he would look at the Underwood Stakes and Yalumba Stakes as led-up races for Viva Pataca to the Tattersalls Cox Plate. He would also look for suitable races for Viva Macau who, he said, was looking for softer tracks than those raced on in Hong Kong.

Viva Pataca has staked his claim for a handful of titles when he thrashed Hong Kong’s highest-rated horse Vengeance Of Rain at Sha Tin on Sunday and shattered the 2400-metre course record that had stood for 13 years.

Given a masterful ride by Michael Kinane, who had arrived from London only 100 minutes before the start of the race, Viva Pataca proved his victory over Vengeance Of Rain in the Audemars Piguet Queen Elizabeth II Cup was no flash in the past, coming from behind to pace to win drawing away by three and three-quarters length. Vengeance Of Rain held for second with Viva Macau boxing on gamely for third placing.

Both Viva Pataca and Viva Macau are owned by Macau casino tycoon Stanley Ho Hung Sun.

Kinane said after the race that he would ride Viva Pataca anywhere Moore lined him up in the world, but Cox Plate Day is the same day as the Breeders' Cup in the USA and even Kinane's travelling will not get him from one meeting to the other.

Moore said that he expected that Kinane would have committments to either Coolmore's Aidan O'Brien, or the Aga Khan at the Breeders' Cup

However, Moore mentioned that he would be very happy with either Darren Beadman or Damien Oliver, also mnetioning that Beadman was straight on the phone after the win on Sunday to congratulate him.

'I don't know what there riding engagements will be but I would be veyr happy with either Darren or Damien,' he said.

'When Darren is available I love to have him up here,' he added.

Thumbs up for Marasco after strong trackwork

5 July
GINO DE MORI   The West Australian

Leading Cox Plate fancy Marasco’s Melbourne spring carnival campaign moved to another level with brilliant trackwork at Ascot yesterday.
   
Track rider Paul Dyson gave the thumbs up to trainer Fred Kersley after riding the powerful gelding in a strong gallop.
   
Marasco is the $9 second favourite behind the David Hayes-trained Miss Finland ($8) in the early spring betting markets to give Kersley his third win in the $3 million Cox Plate (2000m) at Moonee Valley in October.
   
Kersley, who won successive Cox Plates with the former WA champion Northerly (2001-02), said Marasco’s Melbourne pipe-opener would be at Belmont next month in either the Newmarket Handicap (1200m) or the weight-for-age Goodwood Handicap (1300m).
   
“That’s the hardest I’ve asked him to go in this preparation, and he did it well,” Kersley said of the trackwork.
   
“I’d like to give him one or two runs here to make sure everything is right for Melbourne.”
   
The champion trainer has a string of top jockeys lining up for the spring carnival ride, with WA’s Melbourne based Damien Oliver in the box seat.
   
Stable sources said one thing was certain: the rider would not be Greg Childs, who rode Marasco in his three Melbourne races last autumn for seconds in the Australian Cup, Orr Stakes and St George Stakes.
   
His losing ride in the $1 million Australian Cup, over the 2000m trip of the Cox Plate, drew criticism from all quarters.
   
After starting from barrier three, Childs allowed Marasco to drop back to last of 13 runners before storming home to go down by 1.3 lengths to Pompeii Ruler at his first start over 2000m.
   
Meanwhile, the exodus of smart WA race mares looks set to continue, with owner Jan Hancock mulling through a host of interstate offers for Belmont Oaks runner-up Translate.
   
Ascot trainer Stan Bates said he and his partner were considering the offers. “If we do sell, we will be disappointed even though the money is good because she will be a hard horse to replace,” said Bates, who trained Covertly to win the 2005 Group 1 Railway Stakes.
   
The Love A Dane filly has raced 15 times for three wins and nine placings, including seconds in the Belmont Oaks and Guineas, and almost $200,000 in prize money.
   
Translate looks set to join the sale of Miss Andretti, Blessed Sue and Belmont Guineas winner Joey Jo Jo to interstate stables.
   
Also gone east is Perth Cup winner Black Tom, who is being prepared by David Hayes for the Caulfield and Melbourne cups.

Certainly some expectations surrounding Blue Monday. Set to gallop tomorrow at Morphetville. The intention to start off in the Liston gives an indication as to how highly they rate him IMO.

Pataca to head Down Under, chasing a dream for trainer John Moore

ALAN AITKEN

Next Story


Trainer John Moore has declared all systems go for star galloper Viva Pataca as the four-time Group One winner prepares to leave for a tilt at the W.S. Cox Plate in Melbourne.

Moore, chasing a dream to win a Group One in Australia, will give Viva Pataca three chances to do that - including Australia's racing championship, with prize money of more than HK$20 million, on October 27.

Viva Macau, also owned by Macau casino tycoon Stanley Ho Hung-sun, will be Viva Pataca's travel companion on Sunday, aimed at the longer Caulfield and Melbourne cups.

"Viva Pataca has had a minor hoof thing but it won't affect his programme and I'm very happy with both horses. This is the strongest hand I have ever gone away with," Moore said. "And neither would mind if they happened to get some of the wet weather that can happen that time of year in Melbourne."

Moore plans to run Viva Pataca in the Underwood Stakes, 1,800m, on September 22 and the Turnbull Stakes, 2,000m, on October 6 before the Cox Plate.

"Michael Kinane will ride him at Moonee Valley and said he'd go anywhere to ride the horse, but I'm not sure what his commitments are on the other days," Moore said. "I'm sure I won't have any trouble finding a rider."

Viva Pataca is at 12-1 in early Cox Plate markets and 25-1 for both the Caulfield and Melbourne Cups.

"He is entered for the cups, but won't run," Moore said. "It would be too much to ask to run in the Melbourne Cup then come back here for the internationals. But if Viva Macau shapes up, the Melbourne Cup might be a good option."

Viva Macau will run first-up over 1,400m on September 22.

Viva Pataca's campaign is similar to Super Kid's path two years ago when narrowly beaten twice in Group Ones before disappointing in the Cox Plate when he appeared to train off. Moore had a similar disappointment with Able Choice several seasons ago.

"They just seemed to drop away in the foreign environment, but there was no outward indication. That's the thing that we can't know, but if Viva Pataca holds form he'll be a great chance," Moore said.

Elsewhere, Paul O'Sullivan has quashed suggestions rising star Medic Power might also be headed for Melbourne. Jockey Brett Prebble recently told the Australian media he would try to convince O'Sullivan to make the trip with the four-year-old and compared him more than favourably with Silent Witness.
