Glass Harmonium joins stable


  • NEWS UPDATE - leading Australian jockey Craig Williams has been booked to ride Glass Harmonium in Hong Kong ***

by Tim Habel, Herald Sun

A GROUP of Melbourne owners will race English galloper Glass Harmonium in next month's Hong Kong Cup, who will then be prepared at Flemington next year by trainer Mike Moroney.

Moroney's brother Paul went on a "recruiting drive" in England this month and bought 11 horses - nine stayers and middle-distance gallopers, including Glass Harmonium - and two sprinters.

The other 10 horses will leave England on December 2 for quarantine in New Zealand for two weeks.

"We were looking to buy ready-made horses and with the way the dollar is and the economy is over there we thought the timing was right," Mike Moroney said.

"Paul heard Glass Harmonium was for sale and drove down to (trainer) Sir Michael Stoute's stables to see him."

"We may give him a run in the autumn, then look at the Cox Plate or perhaps the Caulfield Cup."

Glass Harmonium, a four-year-old by Verglas, will race for owners including Rohan Aujard, Rupert Legh, John O'Neil, Rick Smith and Bruce Mathieson before going into quarantine in New Zealand.

A winner of three of his 11 starts in England, Glass Harmonium was a last-start sixth to Twice Over in the Group 1 Champion Stakes at Newmarket.

His rivals for the Hong Kong Cup (2000m) on December 12 include English and Irish Oaks winner Snow Fairy, last year's winner Vision D'Etat and local star Collection.
