Recap,

A funny old track at Timaru last Friday with a front running bias and even times throughout the day. Pheroz Friends had a much better experience in the mdn 1200m settling well then taking a while to wind up but did find the line for 6th. Count Nico continues to improve with a bit more experience under his belt clocking the fastest sectionals in his race over 1200m, and Ugo got back from the gate and was unable to obtain clear air until late in the piece just 3 lengths to the winner for 7th.

Ashburton Saturday,

Another busy day for the team as we head to Ashburton for the feature day this weekend, with a current track rating of soft 6 we have also been dealt some average gates to contend with! Beginning in race one is Kikimora. She is so close to cracking the maiden this filly and steps up in distance to the mile with blinkers added to her gear this week and Kavish remains aboard. Race two with Stan With Me for the 65 1400m. The one gate which isn’t ideal for him holding no early speed so will be needing some luck in the running to gain a clear run and Krishna aboard this week. Straight into race three with two runners for the mdn 1200m, Bolshoi Star from gate 8 and Sam Wynne in the saddle, and La Frox will jump from the gun gate with Rohan to do the riding. Both of these fillies were scratched from Timaru and we look forward to getting them back on track. Down to race 6 with Perfectly Suited to take her place in the Group 3 Barneswood Farm Stakes over 1400m in the hands of Sam. This filly put forward a phenomenal run for 2nd in the Canterbury Belle and know she will appreciate the step up in trip. Petty’s Legacy closes out the day for us fresh up in the 75 1400m and Rohan Mudhoo but must contend with gate 11.

All the very best to connections running we look forward to an exciting day on the track!

Stan With Me

His favourite course and where he won over 1400m we would love a deja vu, and after clocking the fastest last 400m in his previous start we know he has the the motor to do it! Go Stan!

Petty’s Legacy

Our beautiful Petty’s Legacy is ready to rock and roll this weekend. Now a 5yo mare and winner of 4 races, she trialled up well for a smart win last month and we can’t wait to kick her campaign off on Saturday.
