Recap, You don’t get many days as good as was had on Saturday at the Hororata Racing Clubs meeting at Riccarton. The day was sunny and still, the track was perfect, many of our owners were in attendance, and we had three starters for two winners and a second. Our two 2yo’s did us proud in the Petersens Jewellers Ladies Bracelet 2yo 1000m with Defiant coming up trumps for the win. She crossed over from a wide gate finding cover before presenting and kicking strongly under Rohan Mudhoo claiming her maiden win by two and a quarter lengths. Kikimora made the race a stable quinella with Kavish Chowdhoory in the saddle. This filly had a closer alley, shifted out to the better part in the middle of the track, followed up her mate and really found the line well late and doing her best work after the post. A brilliant result for all concerned. We were especially pleased the track came up so well for our third runner Second Thought who finds her best on top of the ground. Racing out of grade in the 74 2000m we watched a foot perfect ride from Krishna Mudhoo settling the mare just ahead of mid field, before commencing her run around the 800m and producing a sharp turn of foot to impressively put the field away for a 3 length win margin.
Huge congratulations to all involved with these three runners!
Ashburton Wednesday, We are off to Ashburton raceway next Wednesday taking four of the team. Feelin’ Fancy for the 74 1600m following on from an encouraging run over the 1400m last start, Kudos de Sothys over 2200m after a closing 3rd place last time out, So Amused looking to clear maidens in the mdn 1600m, and Stan With Me starting in a freshened state for the mdn 1400m.
Have a lovely weekend!
2yo Ladies Bracelet Winner Defiant
That makes 3
Following a closing 2nd on debut this Tavistock filly showed her improvement in strides with this brilliant win and locked herself in as one to follow.
Now the winner of 3 from 8 starts, this Ghibellines mare made her efforts look like a walk in the park. She is maturing into an exciting staying type.
