Moriarty has won the Group 2 Brisbane Cup at Eagle Farm Racecourse last Saturday June 8, 2013.

The five-year-old won the race by a length in front of Quintessential, who finished second, and Zennista, who rounded out the placings in third position.

Trainer Chris Wallerwas thrilled with Moriarty’s winning performance in the 2013 Brisbane Cup.

“I have always loved coming to Brisbane, I came over here as a strapper in the early days from New Zealand,” Waller said.

“I loved it then and nothing has changed, horses thrive up here.

“The Brisbane climate gives horses a lift and some of them can manage to rise to the next level.”

“Instead of going on walking machines, they are getting walked and going to the beach.

“It is just a great atmosphere for horses.”

Moriarty was ridden by jockey Nash Rawiller in the race, who was always confident that Moriarty could take out the win.

“Chris was quite worried about the jump up to 2400m, but I knew if I could ride him how I had been riding him, he would do it,” Rawiller said.
