Malachi Crunch

Malachi Crunch is enjoying a short break in the paddock with his friend Depreciation. Both boys are due back at the stables next week.

They both earned a little holiday after very successful preps (Depreciation won at Crookwell in March and Malachi Crunch won at Moruya in April).

Malachi Crunch will be back at peak fitness in time for the Moruya meeting at the end of June.

 

Malachi Crunch

Malachi Crunch had an easy gallop on his own on Tuesday morning (click above for video). He worked from the 1000m mark in the following sectionals:

16.82, 14.87, 13.49, 12.95, 12.29

 

Malachi Crunch

Malachi Crunch is back at the stables after a short 10 days in the paddock. He managed to stack on the weight around his belly even though he was only on the grass for such a short time. He did some 3/4 pace on Saturday and he felt fit and fresh so it shouldn’t take too long to strip off the extra kilos.

He is aiming to race at his favourite track, Moruya, on April 9th.

Malachi Crunch is racing today at Nowra. He will be ridden by Pat Scorse to take 1.5kg off his high weight. He had a solid sprint up with Lincoln Cash Man on Friday (video above) and should perform well today.

Living Doll, Malachi Crunch

Living Doll and Malachi Crunch galloped together on Thursday morning (video above).

They worked from the 1000m mark in the following sectionals:

16.82, 15.71, 14.67, 11.78, 11.51

Living Doll is planning on racing at Kembla Grange on the 9th and Malachi Crunch is aiming to race on the 5th, also at Kembla Grange.

Malachi Crunch had his first outing to the river this week and he was perfect. He confidently led the way through the water, followed by Georgian Court and Depreciation (video above).

We were very pleased with Malachi Crunch’s effort in the Narooma Town Plate, especially since it was his first race over 1300m. He has always been a short distance sprinter but as he gets older, he is learning to settle and stretch out the distances he can race over.

At trackwork, Malachi Crunch always does the bare minimum and barely makes it around to the exit before stopping. His rider, Maddy, filmed the video below from her helmet camera on Saturday morning showing the effort needed to make it the last 200m in a slow canter. Sometimes it is hard to believe he has won 5 races.

Malachi Crunch

Malachi Crunch is preparing to take on the Narooma Town Plate on Monday over 1300m. It will be his first test at the trip when he steps up from his win over 1200m last start.

Malachi has been allocated minimum weight so Brock Ryan is back on board. Brock rode Malachi Crunch to his first three career wins, two of which were at the Moruya track.

Tuesday morning’s gallop video is above where he worked from the 1000m with Lauren Davies’ horse “Clergyman”:

15.41, 14.50, 13.78, 11.76, 11.18

He took his little sister, Minnie Malachi, for a trail ride on the bush track to recover on Wednesday morning:

Malachi Crunch has hit the lead in the chase for the Moruya Jockey Club Horse of the Year with his victory on Monday.

We love this photo from Bradley Photographers of Archie with his amazing owner Melissa returning to the yard after his win.

Robbie Brewer is riding an incredible strike rate for our stable at the moment and the last four times he has worn the pink Electrick Bloodstock colours he has cross the line in 1st place, an unbelievable achievement.

Malachi Crunch

Malachi Crunch is ready for the races on Monday after his sprint up this morning with Sarzana (video above). They ran up the last two furlongs in:

11.23, 10.86

He will be racing against stablemate Airfree, who he enjoyed a trail ride with earlier in the week (video below).

Malachi Crunch has recovered well from his race at Moruya. He will be nominated for the BM58 over 1200m at the Showcase meeting on Moruya Cup Day 7th of January.

Our rider Maddy Wright has a new camera that gives an on board view of riding the Crunch at trackwork:

 

Malachi Crunch

Malachi Crunch has come through his jumpout very well and is now really galloping like he is ready to race.

He galloped with Pulla Swifty on Tuesday morning (video above) and their furlong sectionals from the 1000m mark were:

17.06, 14.30, 14.32, 11.36, 10.96

Malachi Crunch had an easy trail ride on the bush track this morning and he is entered to race at Moruya in the Christmas Flying over 1010m on Sunday.

Jumpouts 11/12/18


As our team of horses head towards the Moruya summer racing meetings, Sarzana and Malachi Crunch jumped out this morning to help prepare them for the races on the 23rd of December.

Sarzana had a nice trial, never under pressure and worked the last two furlongs in:

10.44, 11.25

She is still a maiden and will be nominated for the 920m.

Malachi Crunch had a good hit out in a fast trial. His ClockIt GPS sectionals for the last 600m were:

10.60, 10.46, 11.77

He will be taking on the Christmas Flying over 1010m.

Malachi Crunch, Sarzana

Malachi Crunch and Sarzana galloped on the course proper on Tuesday morning. They worked together up the straight very well and their furlong sectionals from the 800m were:

15.13, 14.81, 11.33, 11.43

They are both on track for a jumpout next Tuesday.

Malachi Crunch, Sarzana

Sarzana and Malachi Crunch are both working their way towards a jumpout on the 11th of December. They galloped together on the course proper on Saturday morning and their furlong sectionals were:

15.25, 14.48, 11.33, 11.35

They are both planning on resuming racing at the Moruya meeting on the 23rd of December.

Georgian Court, Malachi Crunch

Malachi Crunch worked 3/4 pace over 1000m on the course proper on Saturday morning. We are aiming to give him a jumpout on the 11th of December.

He followed Georgian Court, who is aiming to race again at Sapphire Coast on the 3rd of December.

Malachi Crunch

Malachi Crunch resumed pacework this week and he worked 3/4 pace over 600m on Saturday morning. He is aiming to return to the races at the December Moruya meeting on the 23rd.

Malachi Crunch

The Crunch is back in work after a three week break in the paddock. He stacked on the weight eating grass non-stop while he was on holiday so he will spend the next month slimming down and building his fitness to prepare for the summer racing at Moruya.

Moruya Races 28/09/18


It was a busy day of racing for our stable at the September Moruya meeting.

We had two runners in the 1425m Maiden, Unbridled Princess and Sarzana. Unbridled Princess had a tough run, sitting wide the whole race, but she showed some improvement to finish 10th. She is still racing greenly and lacks confidence under pressure. She will race again at Moruya on the 14th of October, stepping up to 1650m and the blinkers will go on.

Sarzana was having her first start for our stable but she got wobbly and faltered mid way up the straight. She recovered very poorly from the race and we have turned her out for a spell. She will be back in four weeks to start afresh.

Pulla Swifty stepped up to 1200m and drew a very wide gate again, as has been the case for her whole career. She pushed forward to sit outside the leader and put up a great race to finish 4th, beaten 2.7 lengths. Her race craft is really starting to improve and she will race again at Moruya on the 14th of October, again over 1200m.

Georgian Court was our other new runner, having her first start for our stable in the 1200m Class 2. We elected to go forward from the wide gate but she was run off her feet and faded out to finish 10th. She will race again at Moruya on the 14th of October and would really appreciate a wet track.

Malachi Crunch put in another wonderful run on his home track to finish 3rd, beaten only 1.1 lengths. He has been up racing since February this prep and has achieved six top 4 finishes, including one win. He will go to the paddock for a break before the summer racing begins.

Millijule was the final runner for the day and she also put in a really pleasing run. She finished off the last 50m like a steam train and was only beaten 2.6 lengths, but ended up 10th in the bunched finish. She will race again at Moruya on the 14th of October and looks to be in for a good prep.
