Moroney looking to expand operation

Mike Moroney has confirmed he has applied for stables at Randwick to complement his New Zealand and Melbourne operations.

He joins premier Victorian trainer Peter Moody in seeking a base at Randwick with both on an Australian Turf Club waiting list.

Moroney said it made good business sense to have permanent boxes at Sydney's premier track.

"The stake money is rising in Sydney and most of the breeders live there," Moroney said.

"A lot of us buy BOBS yearlings so we want the horses to race there where they can earn more money.

"I have applied for between 12 and 15 boxes to set up a satellite stable."

The BOBS bonus applies to horses racing in NSW which are sired by stallions based in the state and nominated for the scheme.

A regular visitor to the Sydney carnival, Moroney sent Wall Street on a much longer journey to Perth only to be disappointed when the multiple Group One winner was withdrawn at the barriers before Saturday's Kingston Town Classic.

The gelding straddled the bar at the back of the stall.

"He's coming back home and will have a spell," Moroney said.

"He took some skin off and has a bit of bruising but will be OK."

Moroney's only runner at his home track, Flemington, on Saturday will be Muirfield who will line up in the $100,000 Open Handicap over 2000 metres.

The five-year-old goes into the race off a third place behind Le Roi at his most recent start in a similar race at Caulfield on December 1 when he was caught wide.

"He's good to go for Saturday," Moroney said.

Muirfield is by 2002 Australian Derby winner Don Eduardo whose $NZ3.6 million price tag remains an Australasian record for a yearling sold at public auction.

There were 25 entries for the race with Brisbane Cup runner-up Dance With Her the highest rated on 102.
