Several horses from the Guy Lowry stable worked at speed at this morning’s Hastings trackwork session, including Candle and The Stoney One who recorded a quick 800m gallop.
Fast work was confined to the plough which was conducive to fast times.
Candle and The Stoney One worked together over 800m in 48.6, running the first 200m before sprinting home the last 600 in 35.2. Both horses were hitting out well at the finish and both pulled up well afterwards.
The Stoney One heads to the Trentham meeting on December 9 for a Rating 75 race over 1400m while Candle will line up at the Hawke’s Bay meeting on December 13. She was an unlucky third over 1200m at Trentham last start.
Eparaima, another likely starter at Hastings on December 13, worked on her own over 800m in 50.1, the last 600 in 37. She was a good last start third over 1400m at Trentham.
Love Letter, who contests a Rating 65 race over 1600m at Wanganui this Saturday, also worked on her own and clocked 52.5 for 800m, the last 600 in 35.8 while Sol De Oton also hit out well when running a solo 800m in 49.8, the last 600 in 36.6. She is a promising three-year-old filly by The Autumn Sun and is likely to have a jumpout at Waipukurau early next week.
Stablemates Ravenna Rose and Supercell worked together over 1200m in 1:20.5, running the first 600m in an easy 42.6 before quickening over the last 600 in 37.9. They both head to the Wanganui meeting this Saturday where Ravenna Rose will contest a Rating 65 race over 2040m and Supercell will run in the Rating 65 race over 1200m.
Chairman, another from the Lowry stable likely to have a run at next week’s Waipukurau jumpouts, ran a solo 800m in 48.8, the last 600 in 36 while Cheers Not Tears and a Time Test-Anniesstar three-year-old filly worked over 800m together in 50.9, the last 600 in 36.6. The Time Test filly is a half-sister to the exciting Jimmysstar, who recorded his fourth win from only five starts with another impressive performance at Cranbourne, Australia, last Saturday.
Avaya and Wolf Dance worked together over 800m in 52.4, the last 600 in 37.8 while a Time Test-Edwina three-year-old gelding was not hurled when running a solo 800m in 55.3, the last 600 in 40.1. He is a half-brother to the well performed jumper Nedwin.
An Overshare two-year-old gelding went with a Time Test-Queen Aly three-year-old filly and an Alamosa three-year-old gelding when running 600m in 42.2. They were only let stride out over the last 400m and all three are likely to have a jumpout at Waipukurau next week.
