Hastings Trackwork 17 Mar 2020


(By John Jenkins)


   Peso continued is preparation towards the Awapuni Gold Cup on Saturday week with another strong solo gallop at today’s Hastings track session.

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

   Peso worked in from the 1000m peg in 1:03.8, running the first 400m in 27.1 before coming home the final 600 strongly in 36.7. He looks in great order and any easing in track conditions will help his chances.

   One Prize One Goal, a likely runner at Tauherenikau on Sunday, worked on his own from the 1000m peg and was timed to come home the last 800m in 51.1 and final 600 in 37.7. He was scratched from Woodville on Sunday because of the firmness of the track and lines up in the Rating 65 race over 1400m at Tauherenikau.

   His stablemate Thousandkissesdeep, another who was scratched at Woodville, showed good speed when running a solo 800m in 50, the last 600 in 35.6. She is entered for the Maiden 1000 at Tauherenikau on Sunday.

   Uncle Bro, likely to start next at Waipukurau next week, clocked 1:10.3 for 1000m, running the first 400 in 28.9 before coming home the last 600 keenly in 37.4. He hasn’t raced since finishing fifth over 1900m at Wairoa last month.

   Flying Habit and Velarde, two others in the Lowry/Cullen stable, were restricted to not much more than three-quarter pace when running 1000m in 1:12.7, the last 600 in 43.4 while Maria Dior, a likely runner in the Rating 82 race over 1000m at Tauherenikau, was kept to just two rounds of pacework.

   A Savabeel-Baby Shakes two-year-old filly and an I Am Invincible filly, both in the Lowry/Cullen stable, worked in at three-quarter pace from the 1000m, running home the last 600 in 45.2 while Shezza Cash ran a solo 800m easily in 59.7.

   A Raise The Flag four-year-old gelding from the Lowry/Cullen stable ran an easy 800m in 57.6, the last 600 in 42.5 while Shady Lady ended her worked with 600m in 45.3.
