Special guest at the luncheon will be former leading trainer Peter Moody.

From the western Queensland town of Wyandra to Royal Ascot and all racecourses in between, Peter Moody has left his mark as a horse trainer. Moody honed his skills with the bush trainers of his native Queensland before shifting to Sydney where he worked for Hall of Fame trainer Tommy Smith. He then set up stables in Queensland but on the back of his success with Amalfi in the 2001 VRC Derby set plans to relocate his operation to Victoria. By the 2009/10 season Moody had risen to the top of the Victorian training ranks by taking out the Metropolitan Premiership, ending a 32-year sequence by the Hayes and Freedman stables. He would be leading trainer for the following two seasons. Moody has trained more than 40 Group 1 winners throughout his career, however, Black Caviar, a winner of all her 25 starts including 15 at Group 1 level, will always be the horse associated with Moody’s career as a trainer.
