HASTINGS TRACKWORK 1 Feb 2019

   Impressive wins by Jonny Russ and Tuigold were among the highlights at this morning’s Hastings jumpouts.

   There were five official heats, run up against the inside rail on the course proper which provided good footing.

   Jonny Russ wasn’t extended at any stage when winning his 750m heat by half a length in a time of 45.9s. The Ocean Park four-year-old was unplaced in three starts as a three-year-old before an injury sidelined him for 12 months. He is now prepared by Guy Lowry and Grant Cullen and looks to have come back in good order.

   Tuigold won the second of the two 1000m heats and also looked to have plenty in hand at the finish when winning by half a length in a time of 1:03.2. He is a four-year-old by Any Suggestion who has also been off the scene for a long time and could resume racing at the Gisborne meeting on February 17.

   Another highlight was the return of Group 1 winner Wait A Sec. The eight-year-old Postponed gelding, winner of the 2017 Livamol Classic at Hastings, injured a tendon soon after winning the Wairoa Cup 12 months ago and had to be turned out for several months. He looks to have come back well and wasn’t extended when finishing a close fourth in the second of the two 1000m heats.
