Hastings Trackwork 11 Oct 2017

(By John Jenkins)

Class mare Miss Wilson stretched out nicely in a solo gallop at this morning’s Hastings track session.

Fast work was carried out on the plough (slushy) and about half-way out on the No.1 grass (heavy). More than 70 millimetres of rain has fallen on the Hastings track since Saturday morning.

Miss Wilson worked in from the 1000-metre peg on the plough in 1:4.6, running the first 400 metres in 27.1 before quickening over the final 600 in 37.5. She looked to be working strongly at the finish.

Jonny Russ and an Equiano two-year-old colt, two others in the John Bary stable, took the time honours for the morning when they worked over 800 metres in 51.9, sprinting the last 600 in 36.6. Jonny Russ is a three-year-old by Ocean Park who finished sixth of eight runners when making his debut over 1200 metres at Waipukurau last month.

Gilhoolie was one of the horses timed on the No.1 grass and he started very quickly in his 1000-metre gallop before slowing considerably over the final stages. He clocked 1:4.3 for the full distance, the first 400 in 24.6 and the last 600 in 39.7.

The Cossack ran a solo 1000 metres on the plough in 1:6.2, the last 600 in 37.9 while his stablemate Craggy Range was given a similar assignment and clocked 1:6.5, the last 600 in 37.8.

Kaipawe worked in from the 1200-metre peg at three-quarter pace and quickened over the last 600. She was timed from the 800-metre peg in 53.3, the last 600 in 38.7.
