Sifu had her second jumpout for the prep at Moruya this morning (video above). She is still quite nervous and sweating heavily in the lead up (waiting in the raceday stalls and going up to the start) but she is loading well, jumping very fast and travelling great during the run.
Last time she jumped out she was in a field of maidens and unraced horses but today we asked to go with the more experienced horses to get her in amongst them. Both the other runners in today’s heat have won multiple races and one has even won in Sydney.
We are really happy with how Sifu is galloping and are ready to take her to her first barrier trial next week. We expect her to find a day at the races quite overwhelming the first few times because she is quite nervous but she will only get better with practice.
