Craig Williams and Peter Moody enjoyed a good day at the office on Saturday and the two combined when Red Sun Sensation claimed the Group 3 Chairman’s Stakes (2000m) at Morphettville.

Moody had already claimed a double at Sandown, including the ANZAC Day Stakes, while Williams had already been to the fore partnering Treasurway in the Breeders’ Stakes in South Australia.

It is expected Red Sun Sensation will now head to the G1 South Australian Derby and follow the path which saw Jungle Magnate complete the double last year.

Moody’s son of Awesome Rock was in for the fight and at $12 held off the challenge of race favourite Loco and Suizuro.

“When I jumped out of the gates, I almost became dislodged, made contact and he nearly thew me to the side, so I was glad to stay on him and dug deep when I needed him to,” Williams said.

“Peter Moody reassured me this afternoon the way this horse worked, he had confidence in this horse’s stamina and ability.

“The way he toughed it out late, I still think he’s got a lot of natural progression to come out of this preparation.” – Ben Sporle



Craig Williams:

“As a jockey, Craig has had the privilege of riding some incredible horses and working with some amazing trainers, owners, and connections. He is truly grateful for the opportunity to work in South Australia with such talented and dedicated people. To the owners of the horses he has ridden over the carnival, he thanks them for entrusting him. Their support and encouragement mean the world to him.
Finally, to the connections of the horses he has ridden during the carnival, he appreciates their hard work and dedication, their tireless efforts behind the scenes make it possible for them to achieve great things on the track. Without their support, none of this would be possible.”
