Trackwork Thursday 28 July 2016
Alu Alu (Not a Single Doubt x Montecatini) is ‘coming up nicely and has a very free action’ according to Gai who watched Adam Hyeronimus partner the gelding over 1200m coming home their last 200m in 11.8 seconds.
Chris Castera’s best of the morning was Sort After (Wanted x Patronyme) who ‘did it easily’ over 1200m coming home her last 200m in 11.2 seconds. This filly has improved out of sight and she looks to the eye much bigger and better than ever. She is flying.
Replique (Darci Brahma x Mystique) was Steve O’Halloran’s best of the morning after dashing over 1200m coming home her last 200m in 11.2 seconds. The former kiwi filly ‘keeps improving’ according to Steve. She has a big future ahead.
The exciting Diamonds Are (Foxwedge x Dual Diamond) ‘feels well’ according to Chris who rode the gelding this morning over 1000m at three-quarter pace. After a great effort on debut, Gai sent this boy straight out in preparation for the spring. He is coming up well as we speak.
Full Throttle (Charge Forward x Milanesa) continues to come up well and was described as ‘very good’ this morning by Chris. The gelding looked very comfortable moving freely over 1000m at three-quarter pace. This son of Charge Forward is not all that far from making his debut at the trials.
‘Coming to hand well’ is what Adam said after jumping off Kingston (Arlington x My Pirouette) this morning. The colt worked over 1000m at three-quarter pace, and after trialling 12 months ago, the son of Arlington has matured and he looks a readymade three-year-old, which he will be by Tuesday.
‘Really good’ is how Rachel described Alassio (Foxwedge x Cinque) after guiding the filly over 1000m coming home their last 200m in 11.2 seconds. This daughter of Foxwedge trialled brilliantly back in May and she has since really again come on. She is a very good horse in the making.
Adam’s best of the morning was Long Time Ago (Redoute's Choice x Once Were Wild) who he mentioned ‘goes very well.’ This pure-bred filly is ticking every box and she is fast approaching her debut at the trials. This morning she looked like an old pro moving beautifully over 1000m coming home her last 200m in 11.5 seconds.
The exciting Diamonds Are (Foxwedge x Dual Diamond) ‘feels well’ according to Chris who rode the gelding this morning over 1000m at three-quarter pace.
‘Super work – he will run very well.’ This is what Gai said in regards to the Cismontane (High Chaparral x Viviane) who worked stylishly over 1200m.
Kerrin McEvoy was ‘very happy’ with the imported gelding Broadside (Raise The Flag x Anam Cara) who worked over 1200m at three-quarter pace.
‘Very good’ is how Rachel King described Joy Of Joys (More Than Ready x Sunday Joy) this morning after partnering the filly over 1200m.

Unfortunately the weather that ended our hopes of a meeting at Warwick Farm yesterday has not spared Randwick.
