Recap, Two runners back at Riccarton on Saturday, a muddly run for Pierrogrine in the mdn 1600m for 6th, then dictated wide on the turn he made up good ground in the straight but they ran off the front much of the day due to the rail being out 7m. Our other starter was Tetbury fresh up in the mdn 1200m where they went a scorching 1.08 and she too finished into 6th position and will have taken plenty of improvement from the race.

Coming up, We head South to Ascot Park this weekend with Quintabelle looking to pick up valuable black type in the Listed 3yo ILT Ascot Park Hotel Southland Guineas. This is over a mile and she has won at the distance. She will head down in excellent order so hoping for a trouble free run from a good gate and we are very much looking forward to it.

All the very best of luck to Quintabelle’s ownership group: Barron Family Partnership, Blue Khaki Syndicate (Mgr: Nic Popham), Botting Family Partnership, K Davidson, R C Dennis, Elder Family Syndicate, J Fallow, Riders On The Storm Syndicate, Robbie’s Racers Emily Syndicate & H J Robinson.


Just the one runner now for the Listed Southland Guineas this Saturday in Invercargill in Quintabelle. A two win filly who copped a bad gate then an unlucky run in the Dunedin Guineas last start. This week we are happy to receive barrier 6 and currently a good 4 surface. It can be a tricky track but she absolutely has the goods and let’s hope she can deliver!
