Moody Delighted by Industry's Resilience

Wednesday, 29th January 2020

Hoping to be a trainer again, Peter Moody, who has been active through the three days of the sale to date with nine horses purchased outright or in partnership, was encouraged by the buoyant nature of proceedings at Karaka. “It is an unbelievably resilient industry where you can see fire, flood or famine in this part of the world and the industry has continued to grow,” he said. “You have to respect that the breeders are a significant part of this industry and they race a lot of horses so you can’t begrudge them getting their money in the sales ring. I’ve said it publicly that I think this (Karaka) is the best sales complex in the world and the New Zealand product has been consistently good for my entire career so that’s why you continue to come back. Sadly, New Zealand needs to get their racing rejuvenated and part of their bloodstock, but the farms who breed winners continue to do it and that’s why I come back here.”
