Field of eight at Flemington today for first 2 Year old Race of season
The first two-year-old race of the Australian season — the Darley Spring Preview (900m)
— has attracted a field of eight at Flemington today. Introduced this year as a lead-up to the
Maribyrnong Trial Stakes (Listed, 1000m) on October 5, the 900 metre contest is headed
by the John Moroney-trained Difficult (All Too Hard). “She doesn’t look anything flash. She’s
got hair on her that is three inches long, but she’s done everything to be in a race,” Moloney said.
“There’s obviously not many ready as you can see by the small numbers, but I’m happy to send her
out and give it a go. Whether she’s good enough to win, I don’t know, but she’s shown enough and
did win the trial nicely at Cranbourne. I know she can go, but just how far, we’ll find out.
