We’re very happy that Spring is here! It’s been a tough, tough Winter but we’ve made it and couldn’t be happier to be starting to step the team out beginning tomorrow! We head to the Riccarton on the synthetic with two runners. Beau Rouge for the mdn 1400m. He comes into the race with a trial under his belt following a good break and it will be his first try on the poly surface. Jason Laking is in the saddle and he’s drawn well at gate 5. Kudos de Sothys is our second runner starting in the rg 60 1400m. He too is fresh up also trialling nicely and first try on the synthetic track as well. Sam Wynne will do the riding from gate 7. Good luck to connections.

Onto Saturday races on the grass with debutant Madame Giselle for the 3yo 1000m. She produced an encouraging trial over 800m leading into this and does meet a strong line up. Gate one and Kavish Chowdhoory on board. Stan With Me completes the day for us starting in the 65 1400m. A wide barrier for him but he doesn’t hold early speed and will be looking for him to be finding the line. Hoping though that the track continues to dry with this lovely weather as still rated a heavy 10.

Kudos de Sothys

5yo son of Darci Brahma Kudos de Sothys is a stayer resuming over 1400m. He pleased with a strong run up the straight in his recent trial and will take natural progression from tomorrow’s race. All the very best to Anne-Marie and Charles!
