Since arriving in Australia last Spring, Sneakers has show plenty of ability on the training track. Today at Cranbourne in her race debut, she showed she has a lot to learn but steamed to the lead and was never really threatened.
In this month’s bulletin, I talk about the new stable, a new senior appointment in the team, and some recent results.
Winston Legacy, our tall, scopey son of Rip Van Winkle, is still a work in progress and doing what he can in his races. Let’s say he is “winging it” a little, and has a great deal to learn.
Today Getemhel stepped out for her three-year-old season debut at Geelong, in a field that looked to have quite a bit of depth. It was hard to be super confident, but we knew she had talent and hoped she would put it all together in the race.
With first-up form at Caufield over 1400m and in Group 1 races, there was always a little pressure on Suavito to perform on Saturday in the Group 2 PB Lawrence Stakes.
Both Choice and Tiny’s Legacy going Suavito at Caulfield Racecourse on Saturday.
Over the past two weeks, it has become clear that Suavito is fit and in fine condition following two jump outs at Flemington, and ready for a tilt at the Lawrence Stakes this Saturday.
It has been great to welcome many of our recently turned two-year-olds into the stable for their orientation programs.
Suavito had her first serious hit out on Friday morning in an 800m jump out at Flemington on the Inside Grass.
On Saturday we head up the highway to Echuca with three runners, this time hoping for the meeting to proceed as planned following Monday’s abandoned meeting.
Very pleased with all of our horses having a jump out this morning at Flemington.
