Moroney Forced to Jump Through COVID-19 Hoops

Tuesday, 14th July 2020

With life as a bloodstock agent, Paul Moroney has been used to living on the road for some time, and that is where he was when watching the Derby, reports NZ Racing Desk. Based in Victoria, Moroney has spent the last few weeks in New South Wales in preparation to be able to cross into Queensland later this week to attend the Gold Coast National Sale. “My partner Catheryne and I have been living in Melbourne for the last 18-months, but we are currently in the Hunter Valley,” he said. “We have been up here for two weeks so that we could then get across the border for the Magic Millions Sales.” The COVID-19 pandemic has been a major issue for many businesses and Moroney’s is no different. “I would normally have gone up to Royal Ascot and stayed through to the July Sale and then come back and gone back up for the October yearling sale around Ireland and England and then stayed on for the horses in training sale,” Moroney revealed. “I would have come back for the Melbourne Spring Carnival and then gone back up for the breeding stock sales in Ireland, England, and France, but under the current situation it looks highly unlikely that any of that will be happening this year and possibly for the foreseeable future.”
