Horse Updates

Boomahnoomoonah

Boomahnoomoonah had her second jumpout at Moruya this morning (video above). She jumped out much faster this time and is now ready to go to the barrier trials. We will nominate her for the trials at Goulburn on the 29th of May.

Airfree

Airfree lines up in the Nowra Cup this weekend. Click above for video update.

Dragon's Breath

Dragon’s Breath has stepped up to 3/4 pace work. He is on the inside in the video above. He is very quiet and relaxed so it was great to see him put his ears back and get competitive with his mate during the fast work this morning.

We are aiming to jump him out on the 3rd of June.

Kuna Magic

We were very pleased with Kuna Magic’s barrier trial on Sunday at Queanbeyan. Her behaviour all day at the rcaes was excellent and she finished off great.

A replay of the trial is HERE

She has pulled up well and went for a canter this morning. Click below for video update.

 

Train the Brave

Train the Brave was moving good in his canter this morning and has pulled up from Queanbeyan well. Click above for video update.

Kattegat

Kattegat has come through his Queanbeyan race fine and went for a canter this morning. Click above for a video update.

Icksta

Icksta started 3/4 pace work and is coming along great. He is on the outside in the video above.

He had his winter coat clipped off this week which allows us to dry him more quickly after he is worked and keeps his skin in better condition through Winter by not being wet for so long each morning.

We are aiming to jump him out on the 3rd of June.

No Emotion

No Emotion has been working well since his great run at Sapphire Coast. He galloped with Sifu this morning (he is on the inside in the video above).

We have been considering a few options for his next start but we really want to keep his confidence up and keep Robbie Brewer riding him (who can’t ride low weight). We are going to stick with the original plan of running him in the BM60 over 1400m at Canberra on 22nd May.

Kattegat

Kattegat has been working great since his short freshen up. He is on the outside in the video above of this morning’s gallop.

We would like to target the Highway Handicap on 6th of June Class 3 over 1100m. We need to race once more to be eligible. We had planned to race at Nowra on 24th of May but that race is over 1200m. It would be preferable to race over 1000m so we have him nominated for the Class 2 1000m at Queanbeyan this Sunday 17th of May. Racing this weekend would also give him a three week gap into the Highway Handicap which would be good considering the float trip to Sydney can be taxing for the horses.

We will nominate Kattegat for the Class 2 1000m at Kembla Grange on Tuesday 19th of May as well and make a decision then.

Instruments

Instruments is racing on Thursday at Moruya in the BM58 1650m (Race 5 at 3:05pm).

Jess Taylor is riding her from barrier 8 carrying 56.5kg.

She had a short freshen up in the paddock after her last race to drop her back in distance.

Boomahnoomoonah

Boomahnoomoonah continues to impress in her trackwork. The video above is her gallop this morning. She is on the inside of Train the Brave.

Shrug

Shrug races on Thursday at Moruya in Race 5 at 3:05pm (BM58 over 1650m).

She has been kept fresh since her good 2nd place run at Sapphire Coast just over a week ago. She will be ridden by Kayla Nisbet from barrier 12 carrying 55kg.

 

Hay Bale

Hay Bale is really starting to build his fitness now and he is ready to have a jumpout on the 20th of May. Click above for video update.

Sarzana

Sarzana is racing on Thursday at Moruya in Race 7 at 4:20pm (BM66 1010m).

She will be ridden by Kayla Nisbet carrying 55kg from barrier 11.

It is a much stronger race than she has recently contested but she has been working well, she loves racing at Moruya and she always gives it her all.

Icksta

Icksta is now into week 4 of this preparation. He started pace work this week and is coming along well.

Click above for video update.

Living Doll

Living Doll is racing at Moruya on Thursday in the BM66 1010m (Race 7 at 4:25pm).

She has been very well since her victory at Sapphire Coast. Arky Kajiya is riding her again carrying 58kg from barrier 9.

We expect her to have another strong performance.

Airfree

Airfree is on track to contest the Nowra Cup on the 24th of May. Click above for video update.

Chairman's Choice

Chairman’s Choice is racing at Moruya on Thursday in Race 6 at 3:45pm (BM58 1300m). Shaun Guymer is riding him from barrier 7 carrying 61kg.

He has come through the past week very well since his win and we think he is a good top three chance in this field.

He had a gallop with Instruments on Monday and a river recovery day this morning (video above). He is very fresh after doing very little since his Bega run.

Fantini

Fantini is stepping up her pacework and will be ready for a jumpout on the 20th of May.
