Train the Brave

Train the Brave is coming along well as he works towards a jumpout next week. The video above is his gallop on Tuesday morning and below is a video of him this morning (Thursday).

 

Hay Bale, Jeddah Aheadah

Hay Bale and Jeddah Aheadah had a solid gallop together this morning on the course proper (video above). They worked home the final two furlongs in:

11.5, 11.3

Both horses are heading to Goulburn on Monday (Jeddah to race and Hay Bale to trial).

Pauper

Pauper is back at the stables, cantering of a morning and he seems very happy to be back in work with something to do. He has slotted straight back into stable life and is eating and working well. The video above is his first morning on the track.

Minnie Malachi

Minnie Malachi is back at the stables a few days earlier than planned and has started cantering on the track. She was moving around the paddock so well we decided to bring her in and get started. She has settled back into stable life well and will do a couple of weeks cantering before resuming fast work.

Resort

Resort is powering through his pace work and is ready to jumpout next week. The video above is from this morning (Thursday) and below is his gallop on Tuesday morning.

We couldn’t be any happier with how he is going heading into Tuesday’s jumpout.

Airfree

Airfree is back to herself after her tough first up win at Nowra. She had a very easy week to recover from the bottomless track conditions but she is back to normal now and has resumed pace work. The video above is her 3/4 pace this morning (Thursday).

We will nominate for Canberra on the 26th but at this stage we are leaning towards taking her to the Highway Handicap at Randwick on the 3rd of August.

Dream Fields Retires


We were terribly disappointed to learn this week that Dream Fields will be retired from racing. He is a lovely horse that showed a lot of promise but he has injured his fetlock and will no longer be able to race. He will be rehomed through the Racing NSW Team Thoroughbred program and we wish him a happy life at his new home.

Resort

Resort had his first gallop of the prep this morning (video above). He is feeling really good and has been keen to step up from 3/4 pace.

He is on track to have a jumpout on the 23rd.

Shrug

Shrug started pace work on the grass this week. The video above is her 3/4 pace on Saturday morning. She is coming along well and best of all, her feet have been perfect since she returned from the spelling paddock.

She is aiming to jump out on the 23rd of July.

Jeddah Aheadah

Jeddah Aheadah had her first gallop back from her spell on Tuesday morning and she worked very well, giving her rider a great feel. She is on track to race at Goulburn on the 22nd and we are really looking forward to seeing her back at the races.

She went to the river this morning (video above) which she really enjoys and is great for her joints.

Hay Bale

Hay Bale had an impressive jumpout at Moruya this morning (he is in the yellow colours in the video above).

The 800m jumpout was run in 46.78 seconds, with the final 600m in 33.77 seconds.

Hay Bale finished off well and was hardly blowing at all when he returned to the stalls.

Gossip

Gossip had an easy jumpout at Moruya this morning in preparation for her first race start for our stable at the Moruya races on Monday 15th July. She is in the yellow colours in the video above.

She loaded and jumped well, settled beautifully and worked past the other horses without being pressured. The 800m jumpout was run in 49.14 seconds, with the final 600m in 35.58 seconds. She also had no trouble taking the turn at a gallop going Sydney way.

Duck Gold

Duck Gold had her first jumpout for the prep this morning at Moruya. She can be slow to load into the gates but she was quite good this morning and had a nice performance. She is in the yellow with grey cap on the fence in the video above.

The 800m jumpout was run in 49.44 seconds with the final 600m in 35.81 seconds.

Airfree’s back!


975984.jpg

Our pocket rocket, Airfree, kicked off her prep with a victory at Nowra on Friday. In testing conditions on a Heavy 10 track, she was ridden to perfection by Jess Taylor and took out the Class 3 1200m by over a length.

She has pulled up well from the hard run and went to the river on Saturday morning to help with her recovery. Because the conditions were so tough, we are planning on giving her a few weeks before her next start. She will most likely head to Canberra on the 26th of July and then on to Sydney to try and get a metropolitan win.

Happy retirement Millijule!


926111.jpg

The time has unfortunately come to retire our amazing 7 year old mare Millijule from racing. She has been an incredible gift to our stable, winning 5 races in the past 3 years and bringing a lot of joy to her owners.

We have never had a horse who loves to run as much as Millijule and she was still racing at the top of her game, winning first up and placing 2nd this prep. She unfortunately has damaged her suspensory ligament and it is no longer safe to race her. She will go to the breeding barn and hopefully pass on her toughness and love for racing to her foals.

We will miss her amazing spirit and the way that being a fit, powerful racehorse gave her so much joie de vivre. Happy retirement Millie!

Train the Brave

Train the Brave continues to build his fitness and he is really starting to switch on as his pace work steps up. The video above is his 3/4 pace on Thursday morning where he was working hard on the bit tracking Resort.

Jeddah Aheadah

Jeddah Aheadah returned to work last week and after only two weeks in the paddock, she was able to do some 3/4 pace on Saturday (video above).

Following Jeddah’s victory at Goulburn in mid June, she was sold through the Inglis Online Auction. Thankfully, her new owners have decided to leave Jeddah in our care and we are aiming to race her in her new colours at Goulburn on 22nd July and then to a Highway Handicap at Rosehill on 10th August.

Minnie Malachi

After one week in the paddock, Minnie Malachi is moving around very well and looks good to return to work on the 21st of July as planned.
