We are into our second week back at work since the bushfire evacuation and Boom and Zoom galloped with Icksta this morning (click above for video). Both horses worked well and have remained quite fit during their short break in the paddock. Both will have a jumpout on Thursday morning and then look to race the the Bega carnival on the 1st or 2nd of February.
Boom and Zoom had a good jumpout this morning at Moruya (video above). She finished off well in the straight and is on track to race at Moruya on the 6th of January.
Boom and Zoom had her first gallop for the prep this morning in preparation for the jumpouts on Christmas Eve. She is holding her weight very well and she looks a lot more solid since her spell.
Boom and Zoom is working towards a jumpout on the 24th of December. She is doing her 3/4 pace easily and will be ready to step up to some galloping at the end of next week.
Boom and Zoom stepped up to 1/2 pace last week and she will start 3/4 pace on the grass track on Tuesday morning. She is coming along well and building her fitness. The video above is her walking off the track on Saturday morning after doing 1/2 pace 1000m. She has grown since her last prep and she looks stronger and more mature now.
Boom and Zoom is back at the stables and has been cantering this week. She looks like she enjoyed her break and she has settled back into the stables well.
Boom and Zoom is enjoying her last week in the paddock. She will return to the stables at the beginning of next week to resume training.
Boom and Zoom has gone to the paddock for a few weeks following her run at Moruya on Friday. She had a messy race, jumping awkwardly and racing with her head in the air for the first half of the race. She received a bump around the turn and wasn’t able to finish off after such a torrid run.

An audio report from her jockey is below:
She has settled into the paddock well and zooms around like a lunatic at feed time. We will see how she is in three weeks and assess if she needs longer or can return to the stables.
Boom and Zoom has been training on well since her second place run at Moruya. She is nominated to race on Friday in the 1200m Maiden at Moruya.
She is a tough filly who has now had six starts in her first preparation but keeps eating and working well.
Boom and Zoom is nominated to race at Moruya on Tuesday 17th of September. Click above for a video update on her progress.
Boom and Zoom is ready to have her first race for our stable on Tuesday at Moruya. She is in Race 1 at 1:15pm and she has drawn barrier 4. Pat Scorse will be on board, after getting a good feel for her in her recent jumpout.
She had a solid gallop with Shrug on Thursday last week (on the outside in the video above) and we think she is a good winning chance in this field over 930m.
Boom and Zoom had a quiet jumpout at Moruya this morning (video above). She wasn’t asked to do anything and she finished off well with plenty left in the tank. She took the corner going Sydney way no problem and she is on track to have her first race start for our stable on the 3rd of September at Moruya.
On Tuesday morning, Boom and Zoom had her first gallop since arriving at our stables (video above). She was alert to her new surroundings, being her first time on the grass track, but she worked well to the line. She will have a jumpout on the 22nd.
This week we welcomed our lovely new Spirit of Boom filly, Boom and Zoom. She arrived from Melbourne on Tuesday and had her first ride on Thursday morning. The video above is her cantering around the track on Thursday morning (she is closest to the camera) and the video below is her coming off the track (rider in yellow).
She has settled in really well and is a very good eater. We will pace work her for the first time on Tuesday next week.
Boom and Zoom’s videos and diary are now available on the Thorotek App.
