Airfree and Icksta jumped out together at Moruya this morning. Airfree is in the lead on the rail and Icksta is sitting at the rear and works home into 2nd in the video above.
Airfree had a good hit out and is ready to trial at Moruya on the 22nd to be reinstated to race on Moruya Cup Day in January. She has been working very well at home and we are really looking forward to her returning to the races.
Icksta was thrown in the deep end today, racing Airfree who has won three races, and the other horse has won four races in its career. Icksta’s jockey did have to give him a hustle up coming out of the turn but he worked home well and he punched through the middle of the field, which is great practice. This heat was the fastest of the morning with the 800m ran in 46.84 seconds and the last 600m in 33.27 seconds.
Icksta definitely showed improvement from his first jumpout and he will now aim to race at Moruya in the 1300m Maiden on the 22nd of December.
