Hoystryke kicks off her prep in the 1200m Maiden at the Moruya Showcase meeting on Monday (Race 2 at 1:35pm). She will be ridden by Aaron Sweeney from barrier 8.

Her final gallop was on Tuesday (on the inside in the video above). We have been very pleased with Hoystryke’s trackwork and her two jumpouts this prep. We plan to settle her at the rear of the field, where she is comfortable, and have her use her good turn of foot to finish off in the straight.

The video below is her relaxing at the river on Wednesday (she is closest to the camera).
