Hastings Trackwork 1 Nov 2017

   Good solo 1000-metre workouts by Hunta Pence and The Cossack were two of the highlights at this morning’s Hastings track session.

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

   Hunta Pence clocked 1:3.5 for his 1000-metre gallop, running the first 400 metres in 27.7 and coming home the last 600 in a quick 35.8. He only managed seventh over 1600 metres at Hastings last start but was less than 5 lengths from the winner and was racing out of his grade. He may start next at the Hawke’s Bay meeting on Sunday week.

   The Cossack recorded 1:5.4 for his 1000-metre workout, the first 400 taking 28.1 and the final 600 in 37.3. He was a last start sixth over 1400 metres at Rotorua but that was his first race for six months and he looks to have taken plenty of improvement from the run.

   Last start winner Scandalo, a possible starter at Awapuni this Saturday, worked with stablemate Lady Guinness over 1000 metres and were timed to run home the last 600 in 37. Both horses look in great order.

   Londaro, entered for the Maiden 1600 at Awapuni on Saturday, was given a sprint up the straight this morning and recorded 25s for 400 metres. He is another who looks to have trained on well since his last start win.

   Craggy Range looked to be travelling well on the outside of stablemate Jonny Russ at the end of 1000 metres in a quick 1:1.9, the last 600 in 35.3 while Mocca and Perfect Shock worked together over 1000 metres in 1:5.7, the last 600 in 36.8.

   Gates To Rio and a Nom de Jeu three-year-old gelding, both in the Thompson/Brown stable, worked in from the 1000-metre peg in 1:9.9, quickening over the last 600 in 37.8.

   Thelma finished in front of Happy Hitter at the end of their 1000-metre gallop in 1:4.8, the last 600 in 36.3 while Hugo The Boss clocked 1:6.6 for a solo 1000 metres, the last 600 in 36.3.

   Kaipawe and a Nom de Jeu four-year-old gelding recorded 1:10.9 for 1000 metres, the last 600 in 39.2 while My Big Sister, who is a Nadeem three-year-old filly in the Patrick Campbell stable, ran home the last 400 metres of her work in 27.7.

  A Jakkalberry two-year-old gelding trained by Tim Symes worked over 600 metres at three-quarter pace, clocking 44.6.
