Yorker had an 800m jumpout this morning to try no blinkers and gain confidence around the other horses. His rider is wearing green with white sleeves in the video above. He travelled in good behind the leading pair and didn’t look to be resisting running towards them in the straight. They ran home in very fast time so he wasn’t able to pick them up but it was good to see he didn’t hang or baulk today.
800m – 47.32, last 600m – 33.68
We are planning to step him up to 1300m at Canberra on the 26th and give him a dig out of the gates to try to put him up on the speed. All his good race results have been run like this and if he can step up to further distances, he will be able to get a forward position more easily.
