Knowing that Zoophoria is still quite raw, physically and mentally, the decision was made to tackle the easier BM64 option at Sale with the expectation of another victory. And that expectation was proven correct.
At Kyneton on Thursday, Zoophoria was entered into a BM58 1469m event. Dropping back in distance from two runs at a mile was a specific decision by Nigel, and Kyneton was considered an ideal track for her racing style. And it worked perfectly.
Lightly raced Zoophoria broke through to score her maiden victory at Kilmore on Monday, leading all the way over the 1450m distance.
Great memories of Maybe Diva Stakes day in 2011.
Shock Shock should be back in the winners stalls soon, with a fast closing 2nd from the rear of the field.
Here is a video of our lovely filly by Wandjina, on the track during her education program.
It was a great day at Ladbrokes Park (Sandown) on Wednesday. Lady of Flanders backed up her last start victory with an even stronger win, and Getemhel fought hard to place in a strong race earlier on the card.
We thought it would be useful to provide some information to our stable clients, regarding two topics that are in the racing news this week.
It’s OK. You’re not going insane or having flashbacks. Our old mate Desert Jeuney, affectionately known as DJ, who retired from racing in early 2017, won again but this time off the track.
With the end of the 2017/18 season on Tuesday, we would like to share a general update for all our clients and fans.
Shock Shock is a filly that has kept improving each week since her arrival from New Zealand. We sometimes use that description too much, but in this case, it is absolutely true.
Returning to training in 2018, a bigger, stronger, more mature filly, Lady of Flanders has blossomed. After three very nice jump outs at Flemington, we took her to Caulfield on Saturday thinking she would run much better than her early odds of 30/1 suggested.
