Desert Flame is entered to barrier trial at Canberra on Sunday at 5:50pm (weather permitting). The new interval training she has been doing the past fortnight has really sharpened her up. Her rider, Owen, commented on Tuesday morning “first lap galloped off the bit, then pulled really hard around the back and worked sharp the second gallop. Pulled up better today”. The rider’s comments are available after gallops on her diary on the app or website.
If she gets to trial on Sunday, we plan to race her at Moruya on the 19th.
She is loving her recovery days at the river. The photo above is her coming out of the water on Wednesday.
