Hastings Trackwork - Tuesday 24 May

No Time To Jazz again took the time honours at this morning’s Hastings track session with a dashing 1000m gallop on her own.

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

No Time To Jazz had the pace on all the way over 1000m in 1:01.2, the first 400m in 25.9 and the last 600 in 35.3. The Swiss Ace mare will race next in the Open class 1400m race on her home track at Hastings on June 6.

Her stablemate Petone also recorded a quick time when running a solo 800m in 49.5, the last 600 in 35.6. He is a four-year-old gelding by Burgundy who was unplaced in three starts from the Graeme Rogerson stable and is now being prepared by Pam Holden.

Serengeti, who may start next at Woodville on Thursday of next week, was given two 600m runs this morning, running the first one in an easy 40.3 before quickening over the second one in 37.7. The Darci Brahma gelding was a good last start third over 1400m at Otaki.

His stablemate Free Thyme is another who could race at Woodville next week, providing the track is not too heavy, and this morning he ran two 400-metre gallops in 28.4s and 25.7s. He was not far away when fourth over 1200m at Otaki last start.

Karehana Bay started five lengths behind Manhattan Jazz when they left the 1000m peg and finished in front, running the last 600m in 36.4. He is entered for a 1400m maiden race at Otaki this Thursday.

Tin Pan Alley ran a solo 600m in 38.6 while a Wrote two-year-old gelding in Dean Howard’s stable ran over the same distance in 38.5.
