Leading trainer Darren Weir has criticised the way the Moonee Valley track raced despite landing the final event with all-the-way winner Theanswermyfriend.

Surging to the lead in Saturday’s Harrolds Handicap, the $2.70 favourite Theanswermyfriend outran his rivals to win the 1519m event.

“I can’t bag it (the track) after that race,” Weir said.

“The way the track was racing suited that horse. It was a good tough win as we didn’t want to die wondering.

“I told Mark (Zahra) to keep stoking it up the whole way. Obviously he was walking the last 50 metres but he had the break.

“The race was there to be won today and he got the job done.”

Earlier in the day Weir was critical of how the track favoured horses racing on the speed.

“I’m a real fan of Moonee Valley but I’m not a fan of it today, it’s racing terrible I reckon,” he said.

“Horses today, if they find the fence they win, if they come out you may as well forget you’ve gone around.

“Horses that get back have just got no hope so they need to do something about that.

“I know nothing about tracks so I’m probably the wrong person to be saying it.”
