Hastings Trackwork 18 May 2017

Gilhoolie was the only horse to work at any speed in a very quiet session at the Hastings track this morning.

 Working on the plough (soft), Gilhoolie ran an easy 1000 metres in 1:12.7, the last 600 in 44.5. The Guillotine gelding is entered for the $20,000 two-year-old race over 1200m at Awapuni on Saturday with Lisa Allpress booked to ride him.

 A large number of Hastings-trained horses have been turned out for a winter spell, including two winners from last week’s Hawke’s Bay meeting in Hunta Pence and Pakapunch. Both horses have shown a dislike for rain affected tracks and will now have a break and return in the spring.

Scandalo and Lady Guinness, two other last start winners from the Patrick Campbell stable, are also now spelling while their stablemate Goodsav will be going out within the next week.
