Hastings Trackwork 17 Nov 2020


(By John Jenkins)


   Shezzacatch, preparing for Saturday’s Rangitikei meeting, turned in an excellent solo gallop at this morning’s Hastings track session.

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

   Shezzacatch had apprentice jockey Jordan Bassett aboard when working over 1000m in 1:05.9, the last 600 in 37.9. She was striding out well all the way and has obviously thrived since winning a 1000m jumpout at Hastings on Monday of last week.

   The Savabeel filly hasn’t raced since winning on debut in a Listed three-year-old race over 1200m on the first day of the Hawke’s Bay spring carnival two months ago but is ready to perform well in the set weights and penalties three-year-old race over 1300m at Awapuni this Saturday.

   Sanlorenzo and Saskatchewan were two others who worked well at this morning’s session. They were paired up and sent over 1000m in 1:06.5, the last 600 in 36.6.

   Saskatchewan turned in a much improved performance for sixth over 1400m at Hastings last week and is likely to race next at Wanganui on Saturday week.

   Pablo Esk, another who went a much improved race for third at Hastings last week, also worked over 1000m this morning and was timed to run the last 800 in 51.4 and final 600 in 38.3.

   Free Thyme was not hurried when running 1000m in 1:11.6, the last 600 in 41.6 and he could race next at either Rotorua on December 2 or Hastings on December 9. His stablemate Serengeti also worked in at three-quarter pace from the 1000m and was timed to run the last 600 in 42.7.

   An Alamosa four-year-old gelding and an Alamosa three-year-old filly worked together over 400m in 26.2 while Magic Incanto was kept to just three-quarter pace when running a solo 1000m.
