Molosso Mimosso will have her debut race start at Sapphire Coast on Friday. She has done five jumpouts and an official barrier trial this prep so we have entered her in the maiden over 1400m. This is a longer race than we would typically begin a first starter in but she has done a lot of groundwork with all those jumpouts. She also looks like she will go better over a longer race distance as she lacks the sharp zip needed to sprint.
Her gallop on Tuesday morning demonstrated her likely racing style when her partner got the jump on her out of the turn but she reeled her mate in down the length of the straight.
Minnie Malachi & Molosso Mimosso went to the jumpouts at Moruya this morning.
Molosso Mimosso was significantly improved from her last jumpout a fortnight ago. She jumped with the other runners and worked well to the line. She will go to the barrier trials at Canberra on the 22nd to be passed to start racing in NSW. Molosso wore a tongue tie today and it will stay on for the trial.
Minnie Malachi had her first ever jumpout and she did very well. She was ridden by Pat Scorse and he was surprised it was her first time because she jumped with the field, was very balanced and sprinted well to the finish, just getting a bit tired at the very end.
Assuming she recovers well from today, Minnie Malachi with have a second jumpout in a fortnight.
