Trackwork 27 Dec 2012

 

   Strong 1000-metre gallops by Just Call Me Bond and The Knight were among the highlights in a busy session at the Hastings track this morning.

   Fast work was confined to the plough, which provided good footing.

   Just Call Me Bond ran a solo 1000 metres in 1:4.9, coming home the last 600 in 35.6. He produced a good fresh up run for fourth over 1200 metres at Hastings on December 13 and is now entered for the Rating 75 1200 at Taupo on Sunday, with apprentice Christopher Dell booked to ride him.

   The Knight also stretched out well when running a solo 1000 metres in 1:1.4, coming home the last 600 in 35.4. He hasn’t raced since finishing eighth in the Group 3 Traderacks Stakes (1400m) at Hastings on October 6 but looks ready to perform well fresh up.

   Youtoofast, another entered for Sunday’s Taupo meeting, recorded 1:5.3 for her solo run over 1000 metres, the last 600 in 36.6. She could be hard to catch in the Rating 65 1200-metre race and will also be ridden by apprentice Christopher Dell.

   Colourful Lady, preparing for a 1400-metre maiden at Hastings on New Year’s Day, also stretched out well over 1000 metres in 1:2.5, coming home the last 600 in 36.3. She disappointed at Waipukurau last start but that run is best forgotten as she was found to be off-colour after the race. She had recorded two good third placings before that.

   Jakob Gambino and Sunseka worked together over 1000 metres in 1:2, coming home the last 600 in 36.1 while Omana and Karmazyn also worked over 1000 metres together and were timed to sprint home the last 600 in 35.6. They are all in the John Bary stable.

   Northern visitor Payback was let off with an easy 1000 metres in 1:7.3, the last 600 in 38.1. He may resume in a 1400-metre sprint at Otaki on January 4 before heading back to his Pukekohe base.

   Grenade and a Savabeel-Tycoon Miss three-year-old colt worked in at three-quarter pace from the 1000-metre peg in 1:9.1, speeding up over the last 600 in 38.1 while Pheasant clocked 1:4.9 for a solo 1000 metres, the last 600 in 38.2.

   Just As Well was shaken up over the final stages when running 1000 metres on his own in 1:4.7, the last 600 in 35.9. He has been disappointing this time in.

   Bat Pad looked to be working well on the outside of a Spartacus three-year-old gelding at the end of 600 metres in 37.7 while Rhodan ran a solo 600 in 38.6 and Alicia ran over the same ground in 39.2.

   A Darci Brahma three-year-old gelding and a Fast ‘N’ Famous-Pare three-year-old gelding worked together over 800 metres in 52.8, the last 600 in 38.1. They are both in the Lowry/Cullen stable.

   Lowe Flyer ran 1000 metres on his own in 1:9, the last 600 in 39.2. He is a Fast ‘N’ Famous-Jelignite Gem three-year-old gelding in the Lowry/Cullen stable.

   A Danroad three-year-old gelding being prepared by Greg Griffin ran an easy 1000 metres in 1:10.3, the last 600 in 41.6 while a King’s Chapel three-year-old gelding in the same stable ran home his last 600 in 41.2.

   A Castelli three-year-old filly trained by Sue Thompson and Mick Brown recorded 40.1 for 600 metres while a Savabeel-Latanza four-year-old mare in the Lowry/Cullen stable end her work with 600 metres in 41.7.

Trackwork 20 Dec 2012

 

Cajun, preparing for the Rating 75 1600-metre race at Awapuni on Saturday, worked keenly over 1000 metres at today’s Hastings track session.

   Fast work was confined to the plough, which provided good footing.

   Cajun clocked 1:7.7 for a solo 1000 metres, coming home the last 600 in 37.4. She was an impressive last start winner over 1600 metres at Waipukurau and has drawn well at barrier two on Saturday. Kelly Myers has been booked to ride her.

   Her stablemate King Leonidas was again schooled over the pony jumps in the centre before working quietly over two rounds on the plough, speeding up slightly over the last 600 metres in 41.1. He lines up in the Rating 65 2300-metre race at Saturday’s Manawatu meeting, with Sam Spratt the rider.

   The Knight turned in the fastest time of the morning when running a solo 1200 metres in 1:21.3, the last 600 in 36.8. He has not raced since finishing eighth in the Group 3 Traderacks Stakes (1400m) at Hastings on October 6.

   A Deputy Governor three-year-old gelding trained by Greg Griffin worked over 1000 metres in 1:6.9, the last 600 in 39.2 while a Danroad three-year-old gelding in the same stable ran home the last 600 metres of his work in 39.8.

Trackwork 18 Dec 2012

 

   King Leonidas was schooled over the pony jumps before running a strong 1200 metres on the plough at this morning’s Hastings track session.

   The Spartacus five-year-old disappointed again when only eighth over 2100 metres at Trentham 10 days ago but holds a nomination for the Dunstan Feeds Championship Final (2200m) at Ellerslie on New Year’s Day.

   Fast work was confined to the plough, which provided soft footing.

   King Leonidas was put over several pony hurdles in the bullring before blinkers were added to his gear for his gallop. He ran a solo 1200 metres in 1:16.8 and finished off the last 600 strongly in 36.6.

   Last start winner Cajun also worked over 1200 metres on her own and clocked 1:20.8, the last 600 in 37. The Keeninsky mare was a decisive winner of a Rating 65 1600-metre race at Waipukurau on December 9 and could step out next in a $25,000 Rating 75 1600-metre event at Awapuni next Saturday.

   Northern visitor Payback was let off with an easy 600 metres in 43.3. His Pukekohe-based trainer and part-owner, Nick Duin, has brought the eight-year-old south for more experience at working on left-handed tracks and the horse is likely to be based at Hastings until Boxing Day.

   King’s Royal, who is nominated for the 1200-metre three-year-old maiden at Otaki on Thursday, finished his work off strongly when running 600 metres in 36.9 while Irish Fling was one of several horses in the Lowry/Cullen stable restricted to just three-quarter pace.
