Millijule is aiming to continue the best form of her career when she races at Goulburn on Friday. From the two starts she has run this prep she has scored a second and a win and we expect her to run well at Goulburn from her work and her attitude.
Millijule is ticking along well after her jumpout. She has plenty of energy and is moving very well now. She continues to aim to resume racing on the 9th of April at Moruya.
Millijule had a very pleasing jumpout at Moruya this morning (video above). She jumped with the pack and worked home very well. She is ready to go to the races at Moruya on the 9th of April.

Millijule’s chest is now good and she is moving well. She has started pace work and is getting fitter quickly. We are aiming on racing her at Moruya in April.
Millijule has now done three weeks of cantering and she is ready to start pace work this week. She has been a bit tight through her chest but she had a visit from the physio last week and has been improving with regular stretching exercises.

After 27 weeks in training, Millijule has come to the end of her prep and has gone to the paddock for a well earned rest. This preparation she won at Moruya on Melbourne Cup Day, setting a new Class record and she placed 2nd, also at Moruya.
Millijule is a 7 year old mare but she still really enjoys getting out on the track each morning and she loves to run so she will return to the stables for another preparation before a breeding career is considered.
Millijule is entered to race at Nowra on Monday in the BM58 1600m. She galloped on Tuesday (video above) and worked the following furlong sectionals from the 800m mark:
15.32, 14.23, 12.81, 11.51
She had a sprint up this morning and is ready to go.
Millijule has done an easy week since her race at Moruya. She performed very well considering she was not asked to start her run until quite late for her usual racing style.
We will aim to race her again at Nowra on the 14th of January.
Millijule galloped in wet conditions this morning. She worked from the 1000m mark and ran the following sectionals:
15.32, 15.21, 14.08, 11.99, 11.81
We have her nominated to race at Moruya on Sunday over 1425m. There is a race at Nowra on New Years Eve over 1600m, which is her preferred distance, but she races very well at Moruya so we will likely accept for Sunday.
Belle Tournure kicked off her prep with a brilliant victory at Sapphire Coast on Monday. It was a tricky day of racing with the track heavily favouring leaders but Belle was able to defy the pattern of the day and come from behind to win. Robbie Brewer gave her a perfect ride and her determination got her over the line.
Belle has pulled up well and will aim to race again at Moruya on the 23rd of December.
Pulla Swifty settled quite well in her race but couldn’t make up any ground in the finish. She is ready to step up in distance now and will plan to race over 1300m at Moruya on the 23rd.
Millijule was unable to make up ground from the corner and battled away to finish 6th. Her racing style is not well suited to Sapphire Coast when it is playing in favour of leaders because she needs such a long wind up. She has pulled up well and went to the river this morning with Georgian Court who also raced on Monday. Georgian Court had an awkward run and would really prefer a wetter track.
Millijule has been working well since her victory earlier this month. The furlong sectionals for her gallop on Thursday morning were:
15.53, 14.92, 12.00, 11.76
She is entered to race at Sapphire Coast on Monday. The track at Sapphire Coast can be a bit tricky for horses that come from behind like Millie but we think she is a good place chance.
The Amazing Tahlia and Millijule had a recovery session at the river this morning after yesterday’s gallops. Sarzana went along with them for her first trip to the river and was very well behaved.
Millijule had her first gallop since winning at Moruya on Melbourne Cup Day. She worked from the 1000m mark on the course proper:
15.38, 14.29, 12.14, 11.97
We are aiming to race her again at Nowra on the 9th of December.
Our three last start winners, Living Doll, Millijule and stable pony, Depreciation had a relaxing recovery session at the river on Wednesday. Millijule was so excited about being at the river she kicked up her heels the whole way down the river bank.
We raced at Moruya on Melbourne Cup Day this year and finished the day with a winning double.
Our two seven year olds, Millijule and Depreciation, made it a great day by picking up the last two races of the program under the guidance of Robbie Brewer.
Millijule was never in doubt and won by 3.8 lengths while setting a new class record.
Depreciation was retired in March and has been employed in his new job as stable pony since then. He takes the new, young or nervous horses to the track and teaches our young horses to jump out of the gates. His fitness is very good because we utilise him as a mate for some pace work too so we decided to enter him on Melbourne Cup Day for fun. He ran a cracking race and won to some very loud cheering from his owners and riders.
His regular rider, Maddy Wright has asked to ride him at Bong Bong Picnic Races on the 23rd of November so we will plan on taking him to what is famous for being a huge day at the races.
Living Doll (closest) had a relaxing recovery session at the river this morning after her brilliant win at Sapphire Coast yesterday. She was accompanied by Millijule who is racing at Moruya on Tuesday.
