Coming up, Tomorrow we head to Ashburton Raceway with 6 starters for the 11 race card with the track currently rated a soft 5 with a bit of rain forecast in the early hours of tomorrow.

We begin in race one with Tetbury for the mdn 1600m and Sam Wynne in the saddle. This filly continues to improve with everything she does and after a brief freshen lines up tomorrow from barrier 9. Onto race 4 and we have two first starters for the first of the mdn 1200m races in Ocean Breeze and Rani Belle drawn gates 2 & 3 respectively. Both of these fillies will want to get over more ground but look forward to kicking them off tomorrow with Sam Wynne & Joe Doyle to do the riding. Race 5 mdn 1200m we have Annia Aurelia fresh up from barrier 7 with a couple of jump outs under her belt. It is Kevin Hickman’s birthday tomorrow so hope she can produce a good result for the occasion! Race 6 with Mister Goldie searching to break maiden ranks over 2200m. Joe Doyle onboard from a good barrier of 5 and we hope to see him do the business tomorrow. Our final runner is Kikimora in race 8 the 65 1200m and Leah Hemito take the ride. She should appreciate the softer footing after a very firm Riccarton last start.

Quintabelle will be having an exhibition gallop between races 1&2 in preparation for the Listed NZB Insurance Stakes next Saturday 13th April.


Bred by Beaufort Downs our gorgeous 3yo filly by Tavistock out of Dazzling Lady is putting her ringcraft together, and we know once she strengthens up and gets over distance she will be cracking horse. All the very best of luck to JR & SA Wigley, HJR & MJ Wigley, OL & AM Tuthill, and TA & SJ Hastings.
