ALABAMA EXPRESS STEAMS HOME

Group 1 targets await Alabama Express following his dominant win at Flemington on Saturday.

Waited with just off the pace by Michael Dee, Alabama Express lengthened with 400m to go in the Salvation Army Disaster Appeal (1100m) and produced an impressive turn of foot to go clear and comfortably defeat Little Rich Boy by two lengths, with stakes winner Banquo a short half-head further back in third.

Mike Moroney has always held the son of Redoute's Choice in high regard and following this return will press on with plans to run the colt in the Group 1 CF Orr Stakes (1400m) on February 8.

The Orr is run under weight-for-age conditions at Caulfield and Moroney believes it could set up well for a three-year-old such as Alabama Express to figure against older horses early in their campaigns.

"I think he's a Group One-class horse," Moroney said. "He's always had unbelievable ability all the way through.

"It's just a matter of going straight and he's learned to go straight now. I was a bit worried about his fitness levels today and he still won well.

"He's a colt with a fantastic pedigree and he's as good a type as you'll see. We've just got to win a Group One with him now.”

Alabama Express sold for $280,000 to Paul Moroney from the Arrowfield draft at the 2018 Easter yearling sale and has now won three of his six starts.

Congratulations to Ballymore Stables (Aust) Pty Ltd, R & C Legh Racing Pty Ltd, Arrowfield Pastoral Pty Ltd, B & C Thoroughbreds Pty Ltd, L Petagna and D C Morison.
