Pablo Esk, who could head to Te Rapa this Saturday, worked strongly on his own at this morning’s Hastings track session.
There was not much in the way of fast work, with several horses from the centre competing at the Otaki trials later in the day.
Pablo Esk worked in from the 1000m peg on the plough in 1:05, running he first 400m in an easy 27.3 before coming home the last 600 strongly in 37.7.
The Alamosa four-year-old was a good last start second over 1600m on a very heavy track at Trentham and is now likely to contest a Rating 74 race over 1400m at Saturday’s Waikato meeting.
Last start winner Magic Incanto was keen to go a lot faster when let off with an easy 600m on the plough in 40.9. She looks to have trained on well and will head back to Trentham this Saturday for a Rating 74 race over 1000m. Mereana Hudson has again been booked for the ride.
My Tommy, a likely starter in the hurdle race at Trentham, worked in from the 1200m peg and was timed to run the last 1000m in 1:01.3, the final 600 in 45.5.
An Atlante three-year-old gelding in Fred Pratt’s stable sprinted 600m in 36.8 while Estefania worked early in the session and was timed to run a solo 1000m in 1:12.7, the last 600 in 39.9. She went a good race for fifth over 1400m at Hastings last start and the onset of heavy tracks will be in her favour.
