Fantini is ready to make her racing debut this weekend at Sapphire Coast. She is entered both days, in the 900m Maiden on Saturday (Race 1 at 1:41pm) and the 1000m Maiden on Sunday (Race 2 at 2:00pm). The race and the barrier on Saturday look to be the better option but the weather conditions forecast for Sunday are much cooler. We will wait until Saturday morning to make the final decision.
We have been really pleased with Fantini since she had a short, two week break in the paddock in early January. She has returned much stronger in her mind and better able to cope with the challenges of training. We think on her ability, she should perform very well but it is hard to know how horses, especially fillies, will cope with their first day at the races.
