Former champion trainer Peter Moody will be a regular face at race meetings in coming months.

Moody closed his stable in March after being handed a six-month suspension for an elevated cobalt level found in one of his horses.

Last week Rosemont Stud announced Moody as their racing manager while on Monday long-time stable client, Wylie Dalziel Roy Higgins Racing, said he had been appointed as its bloodstock advisor.

Along with those two roles, which begin next month, Moody is also an ambassador for global wagering company Ladbrokes.

In a press release on Monday, Dalziel said Moody’s involvement would add another dimension to the business.

“He will assist me and my team of champion trainers to identify and select yearlings in the years to come and in all bloodstock management of our horse stock and our outstanding 2015 crop of yearlings,” Dalziel said.

“This exclusive arrangement with Peter Moody in selecting yearlings with me for Wylie Dalziel Roy Higgins Racing will continue giving all new and current owners access to affordable and well-bred yearlings.”

Moody said he was looking forward to continuing his association with the company.

Among the horses Moody will be overseeing as racing manager for Rosemont Stud include spring aspirant Tarzino and New Zealander Volkstok’n’barrell.

Moody’s suspension, which banned him from training but not from working within the racing industry, finishes on September 24.
