Thursday 3rd September

What’s been happening… 

Riccarton on Saturday brought in a mixed bag of results from the team with a good fresh up effort from Showemhowitsdone missing out on 3rd by a whisker, and Elizabeth Rose on debut for 6th with plenty to learn. Last
again unlucky with a snails tempo set for the race then cut out of her run up the straight, she still knuckled down for 5th. After nearly 2 years off the racetrack. Laphroaig gave a good show for 3rd over 1400m, Devious held on for 4th after gaining no cover and going hard from the jump, and Zentessa didn’t figure in the finish fresh up so put a line through that run.

Onto Timaru tomorrow with a slow 7 track following a wintery start to Spring and we have 3 starters for the card. Goodonyamate is on debut in the mdn 1200m with a good barrier of 4. He has improved with his trials and will be a lovely horse when he gets over a bit more ground. Miss Penvose takes her place from a wideish gate in the mdn 3yo 1200m following on from a good trial win over 1000m. Down the card to race 9 and Zareeba starts over 1600m from the gun draw so should get a nice trailing run. Brett Murray rides the team so good luck to him and all our owners for their runners tomorrow.

A lovely athletic 3yo by Niagara who will improve with the more he does and should make a lovely middle distance horse in the future
