Hastings Trackwork 19 May 2020


(By John Jenkins)

   Shady Lady, Estefania and One Prize One Goal were three race winners in action at this morning’s first serious Hastings trackwork session since the Covid-19 lockdown.

   The trio all look in great order and will be ready to compete in the first of two lots of Hastings jumpouts planned for the next three weeks.

   The first set of jumpouts will be held on the Hastings track on Wednesday of next week and the second is planned for Tuesday, June 9.

   The first official central districts race meeting is planned for Awapuni on Saturday, July 4.

   Shady Lady, a member of the Lowry/Cullen stable, has been back in light work for three weeks. She was stepped up to three-quarter pace when working on the plough this morning and was let stride out a bit quicker over the last 600 in 40.2.

   The lightly raced six-year-old has not started since winning a maiden race over 1600m at Waipukurau in September 2018.

   One Prize One Goal was restricted to three-quarter pace, running his last 600 in 43.7 while Estefania worked early in the session and was also kept to just three-quarter pace over 800m.

   Estefania is the winner of two races, on slow and heavy tracks, and owner-trainer Richard McKenzie is looking forward to the onset rain affected tracks in the winter.

   A Per Incanto-Queen Aly three-year-old gelding and a Savabeel-Baby Shakes two-year-old filly recorded one of the fastest times of the session when running 800m in 53.6, the last 600 in 38.6. They are both in the Lowry/Cullen stable.

   A Ferlax three-year-old filly and one by Prince Conti, also both in the Lowry/Cullen stable, ended their work with a 600m sprint in 38.6 while a Darci Brahma-Diplomacy two-year-old filly and one by Iffraaj out of Madama Marju worked together over 800m in 55.5, the last 600 in 40.3.

   A Per Incanto three-year-old filly in the Lowry/Cullen stable clocked 55 for 800m, running the first 200 in a quick 13.7 before slowing over the last 600 in 41.3.

   A Swiss Ace two-year-old gelding and one by Atlante ran an easy 800m in 57.3, the last 600 in 42.4 while a Roc de Cambes three-year-old gelding ended his work with 600m in 42.3.
