Airfree

Airfree started 1/2 pace this week and will be ready to step up to 3/4 pace next week. She is a trackwork machine and her fitness is building quickly.

Airfree

Airfree is churning out the laps each morning building up her fitness after her two month spell. She has slotted straight back into the stables and is coming along great.

Airfree is back! Her new shoes were fitted this morning and she is ready to return to trackwork tomorrow morning. From theses photos, she looks pretty pleased about it…

Airfree has three weeks to go of her spell before she is allowed to return to the stables. She is very well in the paddock and is really enjoying her break. We are looking forward to having her back in work.

Airfree had a sprint up on Wednesday morning (video above) in preparation for her Highway Handicap race on Saturday. She worked the final two furlongs in:

11.20, 11.25

She has barrier 3 in the Class 3 1300m at Kensington. We also have her nominated for Kembla Grange on Saturday but the race in Sydney looks very suitable.

Airfree has been working towards her next race start well this week. We are going to nominate her for the Highway Handicap at Randwick on Saturday and also for a BM64 1300m at Kembla Grange on the same day. We have her nominated for Warwick Farm on Wednesday but the field is too strong so we won’t accept there.

The nominations for the weekend will be released on Monday morning.

Airfree has recovered from her race at Canberra very quickly, which probably suggests she was unable to gallop to her full potential on the Synthetic Acton track. She will gallop tomorrow morning and we are still planning on working towards the Highway Handicap at Randwick on the 17th of August for her next start.

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.

Airfree is working well as she heads towards her first start for the prep at Nowra on Friday 5th July. She galloped with Hay Bale on Friday (video above) and they worked to the line strongly in 11.83, 11.10.

We are looking forward to Airfree returning to the races and aim to see her back in Sydney racing well this prep.

Airfree

Airfree had another solid jumpout this morning at Moruya. She jumped with the field but was a little slow to muster in the first few strides. She travelled at the back of the field and worked home well in the straight. The jumpout was run in the very good time of 45.84 seconds over 800m and 33.74 seconds for the last 600m.

Airfree is aiming to resume racing this prep at Nowra on the 5th of July.

The video of this morning’s jumpout is above and the helmet camera video is below.

Airfree had a good solid jumpout this morning (video above and helmet camera video below). She worked to the line strong and finished off great.

We have a few options for her first race start this prep:

  • Highway Handicap 1200m at Randwick on 22nd of June
  • BM64 1000m at Kembla Grange on 27th June

We will see how she pulls up from today’s gallop and decide later this week where will be best to kick off her prep.

Airfree

Airfree started pace work on the grass this week and is coming along well. She is aiming to have a jumpout on the 20th of June.

Airfree

Airfree continues to build up her fitness this week. The video above shows her leading Pinch River on the bush trail on Thursday morning.

Airfree

Airfree is back in work at the track. She is her usual fiery self and is working and eating very well. She will do another two weeks of cantering before she starts fast work (video above).

Airfree has come through her trip to Randwick on the weekend excellently. She is fresh as ever and full of beans. She will have a gallop on Saturday and we are planning on racing again at Kembla Grange on the 15th.
