Resort and Chairman’s Choice galloped together this morning in preparation for Canberra races on Friday (video above, Chairman’s Choice is on the outside). Both horses worked well to the line and have really picked up in their training heading into this next race. The race fields will be published tomorrow.
Chairman’s Choice had his first visit to the river this morning (at the rear in the video above). He went with river expert Resort and Pinch Memory, who was also a first timer.
Chairman’s Choice will gallop on Wednesday morning as he works towards the BM60 2000m at Canberra next Friday.
Chairman’s Choice has pulled up okay from his race at Moruya on Friday. We was a bit stiff on Monday at trackwork but has since come good and is back to himself again. From the wide gate, Shaun gave him a dig out of the gates to find a position but it caused him to over race a bit and left him flat in his sprint when he hit the straight. Link to race replay
An audio report from his jockey is below:
We will aim to race him again at Canberra on the 25th over 2000m.
Chairman’s Choice has settled in great over the past few weeks and is ready for his first NSW start on Friday at Moruya in the Batemans Bay Cup over 1650m.
His track gallops have been very good and he has out worked each mate he has been put with since he arrived. We are looking forward to seeing what he can do on raceday.
He has a great temperament and is very relaxed. The video below is his first time on the bush trail.
