In an announcement to owners trainer Peter Moody confirms that he is walking away from race horse training when his 6 month suspension begins on the 24th of March. View his comments below.
“It is with much regret and a heartfelt decision that I have to inform you that I am going to recant my suggestion on Friday of where I said I would be back training in 6 months.”After a lot of deliberation with my family and senior management staff, we didn’t feel it was going to be a viable or workable proposition to employ another trainer to care take the stable for the 6 month period of my suspension.
“RV worked with us at looking at putting it together, and it would have been possible but I just felt it was going to be very hard to make it workable and do the best by yourselves as the clients and more importantly by your horses.
“With this in mind I have made the ultimate decision that at this point in time I will not be returning to the training of racehorses in the foreseeable future.”
Moody however did state he wasn’t walking away from racing altogether saying he will continue to own and race horses.
“On behalf of myself, my wife Sarah and my staff we wish you every success in your future racing endeavours and we certainly won’t be lost to the industry but unfortunately it won’t be as a trainer. I will share the joys of racing with you as a part owner in a lot of the horses that we do race with you and hopefully we can have more success together,” he said.
