Hastings Trackwork 15 Sep 2020


(By John Jenkins)


   Strong gallops by Satu Lagi, King Farouk and the jumpers Revolution, Perry Mason and No Tip were among the highlights in a busy session at the Hastings track this morning.

   Fast work was mainly confined to the plough (good) although a few horses galloped on the No. 1 grass and four horses from John Bary’s stable were allowed to use the course proper.

   Satu Lagi was in front of One Prize One Goal at the end of 1000m on the plough in 1:02.3, the last 600 in 36.6 and looked to have something in reserve at the finish.

   Satu Lagi resumes from a spell in the Rating 82 race over 1200m at Hastings on Saturday. He has not raced since finishing third in the Poverty Bay Cup (1600m) at Gisborne in  February but has had the benefit of a couple of jumpouts to help prepare him.

   King Farouk finished clear of his stablemate Resolution at the end of 1000m in 1:07.2, the last 600 in 36.6. King Farouk hasn’t raced since May but finished a close second in a 1000m Foxton trial last week and is entered for the special conditions maiden over 1200m at Hastings on Saturday.

   Revolution, one of two horses from the Nelson/McDougal stable entered for Saturday’s Hawke’s Bay Hurdles (3100m) worked keenly over 1200m on the plough in 1:17.6, the first 600 in 38.3 And final 600 in 39.3. Matthew Cropp has been engaged to ride him.

   His stablemate No Change is also entered for the Hawke’s Bay Hurdles and this morning he ran a solo 1200m in 1:21.6, the first 600 in 43.5 and final 600 in 38.1. Aaron Kuru has taken the ride on him.

   Perry Mason, who will be looking to defend his title in Saturday’s Hawke’s Bay Steeples, worked with stablemate No Tip over 1200m in 1:19.4, the first 600 in 40.7 and final 600 in 38.7. Perry Mason looks to have come on since having a run on the flat at Otaki earlier this month and should be at peak fitness for Saturday’s 4800m feature.

   Callsign Mav, entered for Saturday’s Group 1 Tarzino Trophy (1400m) at Hastings, galloped with stablemate Motivation over 1000m on the course proper in 1:01.9, the last 600 in 35.5. They worked about five metres out from the inside rail.

   Wicket Maiden, entered for Saturday’s Group 3 Gold Trail Stakes (1200m) and stablemate Cinzento, worked up against the inside rail on the course proper and clocked 1:04.1 for 1000m, the last 600 in 34.8.

   No Rock No Pop, another who may line up in Saturday’s Group 3 Gold Trail Stakes (1200m), ran a solo 1000m on the plough in 1:04.9, the last 600 in 37.3. She is still a maiden but shows plenty of promise.

   Estefania, preparing for the Rating 65 2000m race at Hastings, was hitting out well at the end of 1000m on the plough in 1:05.6, the last 600 in 37.2. She was a good last start second over 1600m at Wanganui and any rain will enhance her chances on Saturday.

   Mohaka, who races next in a Rating 65 race over 1400m at Woodville next week, was let off with an easy 800m gallop in 55.3, the last 600 in 39.6 while stablemate Alpine Charm, another headed to the Woodville meeting, clocked 1:21 for 1200m, the last 600 in 39.

   Sanlorenzo, who will line up in a maiden 2200m race at Woodville next week, worked on his own over 1200m on the plough in 1:20.2, the last 600 in 37.7 while Belfast Babe ran a solo 1000m in 1:08.5, the last 600 in 39.

   Red ‘N’ Surf, was one of several horses from Vicki Wilson’s stable who worked close to the plough on the No.1 grass, making timing difficult. The son of Redwood looked to be working well at the end of 1000m.

   Hanging Loose, Rippin and Truly Remarkable were three others from the same stable who underwent similar assignments.

   Sheezacatch was not hurried when running a solo 1000m on the plough in 1:08.2, the last 600 in 40.1 while Pablo Esk looked to be travelling better than stablemate Who’s Alice at the end of 1000m on the grass in 1:07.8.

   Call Me Jack, entered for the Rating 65 2000m race at Hastings, worked on his own over1000m on the plough in 1:08.6, the last 600 in 39.3 while Overstayer finished off his work with a 400m sprint in 25.8.

   Blarney and an Atlante-Kalahari Princess three-year-old gelding, both in the Lowry/Cullen stable, turned in a quick 800m on the plough in 49.5, the last 600 in 36.4 while Atlanta Peach was restricted to just three-quarter pace, finishing her work off with 600m in 41.1.

   Kaipawe recorded 1:05.6 for a solo 1000m, the last 600 in 37.3 while an El Roca two-year-old gelding and a Zed two-year-old filly, both in the Lowry/Cullen stable, ended their work on the plough with 600m in 39.1.
