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.

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.
