We ended up with just the one runner for Sunday’s meeting at Invercargill, Devious. A late rider change to Terry Moseley as Sam was stood down, and he stepped out onto his first wet track for a long while. We were pleased he threw in no tricks and finished a good second place in the open 1200m.
Coming up this weekend we are racing at Riccarton Park and will take over three starters for the feature meeting. Stan With Me is first out on Saturday in race one at the early time of 11.18am! After two horror draws he will jump from gate 1 with Ryan Elliot in the saddle for the mdn 1400m. Next to go will be race 7 the 3yo filliesListed Warstep Stakes over 2000m, where Showemhowitsdone will have her first crack at the distance but still has no luck with the outside gate. This is the last 3yo fillies race of the season and her final start before heading out for a much deserved spell following her stellar campaign. Our last of the day and the last on the card is Laphroaig for the 74 1600m. It is a competitive field and he has drawn out so will need Ryan Elliot to be on his game to find a good position from the jump.
All the very best to connections with runners on Saturday.
