Trackwork Thursday 29 September 2016
‘Very nice – come through her run well and very strong.’ This is what Johan Victorie said about the ever improving Audacious Choice (Redoute's Choice x Barinka) who worked over 1200m coming home her last 200m in 11.3 seconds. This filly was great last start and will be very hard to beat in the coming weeks.
Chris Caserta mentioned that last start winner Balboa Park (Thorn Park x Lady Harriet) was ‘very relaxed’ as well as ‘doing it easily.’ The gelding cruised over 1400m at three-quarter pace and he again will be hard to beat in the coming weeks.
Chris’ second best of the morning was the quality mare Funloving (Northern Meteor x Magsaya) who worked over 1000m coming home her last 200m in 11.0 seconds. Chris mentioned that Funloving was ‘very good – doing it easily.’ She is just about ready to trial.
Chris’ best of the morning was Raphael's Cat (Redoute's Choice x Cat By The Tale) who flew over 1000m coming home his last 200m in 11.3 seconds. Chris commented ‘I like this horse; he feels good and is doing it easily.
‘Very nice work – hit the line nicely.’ This is what Chris reported back after partnering Potentate (Fastnet Rock x Goody Two Shoes) over 1200m coming home their last 200m in 11.9 seconds. After sound debut, this son of Fastnet Rock has improved and looks a coming winner.
Miss Pocket Rocket (Smart Missile x Petrushka) was ‘nice and relaxed’ and has ‘a very good action’ according Chris. The daughter of Smart Missile worked over 1000m at three-quarter pace and she clearly has improved since her two-year-old days.
‘Very professional – very happy’ is how Johan described Sound Strings (Encosta De Lago x Native Legend) after guiding the filly over 1000m at three-quarter pace. It is only early in her preparation, but this filly is already indicating she is coming along in leaps and bounds.
Steve O’Halloran’s best of the morning was Fabrizio (High Chaparral x Desina) who Steve mentioned ‘feels great.’ This was Fabrizio’s final gallop before the Group 1 Epsom Handicap where he will be ultra-competitive.
