Moment Of Change Wins 2012 Sir Rupert Clarke Stakes – Results

October 2nd, 2012

Moment Of Change won the Group 1 Sir Rupert Clarke Stakes at Caulfield racecourse last Sunday September 30, 2012.

The our-year-old won the race by one and a half lengths ahead of We’re Gonna Rock, who finished second, and Solzhenitsyn, who passed the post in third.

Moment Of Change will now head towards the Group 1 Toorak Handicap at Caulfield Racecourse on October 13, 2012.

There he will meet in-form champion More Joyous as she makes her way towards the 2012 Cox Plate and possibly Melbourne Cup 2012.

Trainer Peter Moody is confident Moment Of Change can continue to step up to the plate this spring.

“He’s a bloody good horse, that was a super win,” Moody said after the 2012 Rupert Clarke Stakes.

“He won at Warwick Farm despite not handling the track and then he had a wide gate there last time and still ran very well.”

Moment Of Change has won five of his nine race starts and has earned more than $415,000 in prize money during his horse racing career.
