Gossip is racing on Thursday at Sapphire Coast (Race 4 at 3:45pm). She has barrier 6 and Shaun Guymer will be riding. She had her final sprint up on Tuesday morning with Sarzana who will be in the same race. Gossip is on the inside in the video above. Gossip had Sarzana covered in the gallop on Tuesday but we expect both horses to perform well tomorrow. Sarzana will sit near the front and Gossip will settle and work home.
Gossip had a jumpout at Moruya this morning to sharpen her up as she heads towards her next race at Sapphire Coast on the 31st of October. She finishes 1st in the video above, her rider is wearing an orange vest and white cap.
They worked over the 800m in 49.43 and the last 600m in 35.54. She hit the line well off a slow early tempo.
Gossip had an easy gallop this morning on the course proper (video above). She doesn’t work very hard when she is on her own but really switches on with a mate and the blinkers. She will go to the river tomorrow as we work towards Sapphire Coast on the 31st of October.
Gossip is ready to make her return at Moruya on Friday in the BM58 1200m. She had a good gallop with No Emotion on Friday and we are looking forward to having her back at the races.
Below is a short video update and a video of her at the river this week (she is at the back).
Gossip started 3/4 pace on Tuesday morning and is coming along well. Click above for a video update on her progress.
Gossip is back at the stables, following a short break in the paddock. She has done a week of cantering and the cut on her leg has healed up very well. She will be able to resume pace work towards the end of the week.
Gossip had her first trip to the river this week (she is the second horse in the video above). She kicked the fence last weekend and took some skin off her leg but the salt water at the river has cleaned it up and she pace worked well this morning (Saturday).
She is still aiming to race again at Goulburn on the 2nd of August.
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.
Gossip had a solid gallop with Sarzana on Saturday morning (video above).
We are going to send Gossip to the jumpouts on Tuesday morning to give her additional practice going Sydney way before she races at Moruya on Monday 15th July.
Sarzana is also racing at Moruya where she will enter the Class 1 1200m.
All of Gossip’s videos are now available on the Thorotek App.
Gossip has settled in well to our stable this past week. She last raced at the end of May in Victoria so she is still quite fit. The video above is her 3/4 pace work with Duck Gold on Thursday morning (Gossip is closest to the camera).
We are aiming to race Gossip at Moruya on the 15th of July in the 1200m Maiden.
