Heavenly Thunder is aiming to race again at Moruya on Friday. We have changed her gear in an effort to stop her charging and hanging during the race and her trackwork has been much better this week. The video above is her gallop on Saturday morning.
Heavenly Thunder has come through her victory at Sapphire Coast very well. She had a very tough run but has bounced back and races again on Friday at Goulburn. She had her first visit to the river this week and once she was in, she was very good. The river is an excellent tool for horses like Heavenly Thunder that work very hard on the track and it gives them something different and easier to do.
On Tuesday morning Dream Fields had his first gallop at Moruya, working with Heavenly Thunder on the B grass (click above for video onboard Dream Fields).
They worked from the 1000m mark in the following sectionals:
16.47, 14.46, 14.24, 11.78, 11.66

Heavenly Thunder was scratched from Nowra on Sunday due to the Heavy track. She had a gallop on Wednesday (click above for video) in preparation for Nowra and she has been working well. She also had her first trail ride this past week (click below for video) and we think getting away from the track will help her going forward this prep.
