Hastings Trackwork - Tuesday 17 May
John Jenkins | May 17, 2022

Estefania and Wewillrock, who are down to race at different venues this Saturday, worked well together at this morning’s Hastings trackwork session.

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

Estefania and Wewillrock worked over 1000m in 1:04.1, running the first 400m in 26.3 before coming home the last 600 in 37.8. Both horses appeared to be working well at the finish.

Estefania goes to Trentham this Saturday for a Rating 65 race over 1600m and any rain will enhance her chances while Wewillrock heads back to Te Rapa for a three-year-old race over 1100m. He is coming off a game last start third in the Group 3 Cambridge Breeders’ Stakes (1200m) at Te Rapa a fortnight ago.

Trainer Vicki Wilson brought a team of seven horses into the track to work and galloped six of them.

She was aboard Red ‘N’ Surf when he worked in from the 1000m peg on his own in 1:10.6, clapping on the pace over the last 600 in 35.2. He hasn’t raced for a month but could make a return to the racetrack soon.

Kaluanui and a Mongolian Falcon two-year-old, two others in the Wilson stable, showed plenty of dash when running 800m in 50.1, the last 600 in 36.2.

Duncan Creek, who could line up in the two-year-old race at Trentham on Saturday, worked with stablemate Karehana Bay over 800m in 52.9, the last 600 in 37.5 and both horses were travelling well at the finish.

Moll Of Pentire, another in the Wilson stable, ran a solo 1000m in 1:02.1, the last 600 in 37.1 while Manhattan Jazz was not hurried when running 1000m in 1:13.5, the last 600 in 40.8. He is a Niagara two-year-old who could make his race debut at Otaki on Thursday of next week.

A Mongolian Khan three-year-old had trainer Vicki Wilson aboard when working in from the 1000m peg in 1:06.6, the last 600 in 37.5 while a Tobique three-year-old from the same stable underwent similar work and clocked 37.6 for the last 600m.

Tin Pan Alley had trainer Fred Pratt aboard when running the last 600m of her work in 40.2 while Call Me Jack was restricted to just three-quarter pace over 1000m, the last 600 in 45s.
