Leading trainer Peter Moody says Torah may have done her job for the spring following her maiden win in the Listed Essendon Jeep Stakes at Moonee Valley.

The Spinning World filly had been placed in four of her first six starts including a second in the Listed Gibson Carmichael Stakes (1600m) at Flemington in May before breaking through in Saturday’s 1600m event.

“She’s been crying out to win one and she was stakes-placed as a two-year-old so she certainly hasn’t shocked us,” Moody said.

“She was nominated for the Oaks and even the Thousand Guineas. We had a nice opinion of her but that came up a bit too quick.

“She may run over 1700 metres at Flemington during Cup week but that’s if I don’t put her in the paddock straight away to give her a couple of extra weeks before getting ready for the autumn.

“She’s probably done her job.”

Ridden by Luke Nolen, Torah ($8) came from last on settling to score by 1-1/4 lengths from topweight Bliss Street ($10) with Classic Elle ($3.50) a half-length away third.

The three-year-old was bred by Ramsey Pastoral Company at Scone and was passed in at the Scone Yearling Sale for $20,000.

“Stuart (Ramsey) said it was too good to give away and put some mates of his into it at the Gold Coast,” Moody said.

“John Coates, the Australian Olympic chairman, is in her.”

Nolen said the win was better than it looked because the filly had to come from the back in a muddling-run race.
