Trackwork Friday 27 May 2016
Lucky Fish (Exceed And Excel x Roses 'N' Wine) is ‘improving all the time’ according to Gai who was a curious spectator this morning while watching Steve O’Halloran partner the gelding over 1200m. He is very talented and will be exceptionally hard to beat in the coming weeks.
‘Going really well’ is what Steve said after jumping off Funloving (Northern Meteor x Magsaya) this morning. The in-form mare bowled over 1600m coming home her last 200m in 11.9 seconds.
‘Lovely – going places’ is what Gai said in regards to Mali Rose (Medaglia D'oro x Mysterious Light) who worked stylishly over 1000m coming home her last 200m in 11.6 seconds. With Chris Caserta aboard, the filly did everything right and is getting close to a return to the trials this preparation.
‘Excellent in his final gallop – he will thrive over the 2000m on Tuesday.’ This is what Gai said about the grey gelding Poldark (Pentire x Bluegrass) after watching Steve bowl the gelding over 1400m coming home their last 200m in 11.2 seconds. This boy was born to be a stayer and he will prove very hard to beat next week.
Stare (Commands x Pleasant Change) is ‘sharpening up beautifully’ according to Gai. The filly worked over 1000m at full speed with Steve aboard, and she impressed all when she dashed home her last 200m in 11.4 seconds. She is not too far away.
Chris’ best of the morning was Foxy Loxy (Foxwedge x Xaarhea) who the gun apprentice described as ‘a little champ.’ The filly moved beautifully over 800m at full speed coming home her last 200m in 11.3 seconds. This was a stunning effort.
Tim Clark’s best of the morning was Hussterical (Beneteau x Hussterics) who Gai feels ‘could become a Stakes class filly.’ The daughter of Beneteau dashed over 800m at full speed coming home her last 200m in 11.7 seconds in a display that Tim described as ‘very good.’
At the jumpout gates, three youngsters really stood out; they were Himalaya Flyer (Toorak Toff x Steel A Peak), Magnificent Galaxy (Snitzel x Magnifique Lass) and House Of Lords (Stravinsky x Shalt Not). All three loaded well, were quickly into stride and are doing everything right on their way to the trials.
