Mick Price has taken advantage of giving his Blue Diamond Stakes winner an early look at the Moonee Valley circuit in preparation for his return to racing.

Extreme Choice is being aimed for a first-up tilt at the Group One Moir Stakes (1000m) at Moonee Valley on September 30.

Price said Tuesday’s workout was the colt’s first piece of serious work since rejoining his Caulfield base earlier in August.

Extreme Choice defeated stablemate Flying Artie in the Blue Diamond Stakes before heading to Sydney finishing eighth to Capitalist in the Golden Slipper at Rosehill.

“He came home from the Slipper and had four months off,” Price said.

“He did some pre-training at Rockmount and has been at Caulfield ever since.

“This is the first reasonable little gallop that he’s had and he’s a bit stimulated by it all.”

Price is considering a jumpout at Caulfield on September 13 followed by a Cranbourne trial on September 19 for Extreme Choice.

He plans to take the colt back to Moonee Valley to slot in more practice before the Moir Stakes.

Extreme Choice has added bulk to his frame after weighing in about 417kg when he ran in the Golden Slipper.

“He’s about 460 kilos at the moment,” Price said.

“I think the horse has made a progression into his three-year-old year and he won’t lose too much weight now.”

Price said success in the Moir, in which he will tackle Chautauqua, among others, would enhance the colt’s value at stud.

Plans following the Moir include contesting the Blue Sapphire at Caulfield on October 12 and the Group One Coolmore Stakes at Flemington on October 29.

“I could place him in lesser races against his own age but it’s not going to achieve much,” Price said.

“If he won the Moir and the Coolmore, his stud fee would be pretty healthy.”
