Recap,

Just the one runner at Gore on Saturday in Bolshoi Star. She lined up in the Listed Gore Guineas for an almighty 2nd placing. A shade slow from the gate following delays then took up the leading role under Krishna Mudhoo. She fought hard to the line to finish a long neck to the winner. A wonderful result.

Riccarton Saturday,

We are back racing at Riccarton this Saturday with 3 runners later on in the card. Our first being Second Thought to start in the Marlborough Cup over 2000m. This mare had a freshen following Cup Week then a 1400m trial on the 12th. She’s drawn 2 in the small field of 9 with Kavish to do the riding. Onto the 65 1400m and we have Blue Solitaire also fresh up off a short break. She is there for a fitness run as we map a path for a North Island trip. Stable apprentice Gee Saejorhor is in the saddle claiming 3kg off her back and with an outside draw she will be ridden quietly behind with a nice run home to the line. In the last of the day we have The Bold Lioness for the 65 1800m with her last start fresh up run solid over 1400m. She too has the visitors barrier so will need to see a little magic from Kavish.

All the very best to our owners running on Saturday, see you there!

Bolshoi Star

Huge congratulations to her owners for their first taste of black type.It was a real thrill for them and us!We are off to Karaka 2023 on Sunday searching for some young stock to join the team.
