It’s been a long wait for the new season to come around but we have made it and are excited to kick it off this weekend at Ashburton. To get a dead 6 track on August 1st is brilliant and we have 3 horses to take down with one unfortunately waiting on the ballot. Race 4 begins our day with Last Horrah in the mdn 1200m. She trialled up well on a less than ideal surface so should appreciate the better ground this week and jumps from gate 7 with Tina Comignaghi to do the riding. In the following race we see Don’t Lie To Me start also over 1200m. She finished 6th fresh up on a very testing Riccarton track last start and although she is looking for further we hope to see her hit the line strongly. Jumping from barrier 10 with good gate speed Rosie Myers should get over for a nice run. Onto race 6 it is Colette for the 61 1200m. She is fresh up from barrier 8 and Tina Comignaghi in the saddle. Devious has come in 2 on the ballot so looks an unlikely starter which is a real shame coming off the back of his solid 3rd last start. Good luck to connections racing and hope to see some of you on course.
