Champion trainer Peter Moody may have uncovered his VRC Oaks filly after Autumn Angel broke her maiden in dominant style at Sandown on Wednesday the 23rd of August. Selected and purchased by Wylie Dalziel and Peter Moody for $230,000 at the Inglis Easter sales in 2022 this daughter of The Autumn Sun found fresh air in the straight with Billy Egan on board, running out a 1.8-length winner.
Moody said Autumn Angel would be the type that would continue to thrive the further she gets up in distance.
“She’s come on well, this filly. I was a little bit concerned she might have found it (1300m) a bit short,” Moody said.
“She’s a type of filly we have pigeonholed as our Oaks-type filly this preparation.
“It augurs well going up in trip, going forward.”
Moody said he and training partner Katherine Coleman will not rush into a decision on where they head to next with Autumn Angel.
“We will quietly go home and plot a course. Her next run will be around that 1400-metre, 1500-metre mark,” Moody said.
“Does that involve black type straight away or do we try and put one more on the resume? We will let the program dictate a little bit to us as we go forward.”
The loyal ownership group look set for a good ride ahead with the 3YO filly.
