Georgian Court had some stiffness in her shoulder following her big weekend to Randwick so we have decided to turn her out for a short spell.
Duck Gold has done two track gallops this time in and she is working very well. She was due to jumpout on Tuesday but she had a bad reaction to some insect bites last week so we will delay her jumpout a fortnight to the 12th of March.
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.
Minnie Malachi has been in the paddock for a week and is starting to move around a bit better. After going shin sore in her first jumpout, she has been a bit lame but she is on the improve.
Sarzana is racing today at Nowra. She was entered to run at Canberra on Friday but we elected to run today in what looks to be an easier field, even though she has a wide gate.
She had a nice sprint up on Friday (video above) and her work has been very good since her last race three weeks ago.
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.
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.
Resort had a solid gallop this morning on the course proper, working home the last 400m in 22.35 seconds.
He has been nominated to race at Royal Randwick on Saturday over 2400m.

Unfortunately, the track was too wet to race Living Doll at Kembla on Saturday so we will nominate her for Nowra on Sunday the 17th of February.

Pinch River has settled in very well and has now done nearly two weeks of slow trotting and cantering and trail rides. He had a long spell so he will do at least 4 weeks of slow work before staring pace work.

Sarzana has pulled up well from her last race and she did some 3/4 pace on Saturday morning (video above).
She will aim to race again at Canberra on the 22nd or Nowra on the 25th of February.
Lincoln Cash Man has improved with each pace work over the past fortnight and he was strong to the line on Tuesday morning when he worked with Airfree (video above). They worked from the 1000m mark in the following sectionals:
17.04, 15.23, 14.15, 11.57, 11.49
Lincoln is entered to race at Sapphire Coast on Saturday. He went to the river on Wednesday for a recovery session (photo below – notice the photo bombing fish in the top left corner).
Ollie the Third also galloped on Tuesday morning in preparation for racing on the weekend at Sapphire Coast (Sunday). He worked with Resort over 1000m (video below) and they ran the following sectionals:
17.22, 16.23, 15.06, 11.59, 11.17
Ollie marched straight into the river on Wednesday morning even though it has been six months since he was last there (photo below – leading).
Sarzana is ready to tackle a Class 1 at Sapphire Coast on Saturday following her maiden victory at Moruya last week. She galloped with The Amazing Tahlia on Tuesday (video above) and she was strong to the line running the following sectionals:
15.41, 14.48, 12.73, 10.95, 11.32
Sarzana will step up in distance to 1400m this start.
Airfree is ready to race at Sapphire Coast on Sunday after her gallop with Lincoln Cash Man on Tuesday morning (video above). Both horses worked really well and they came home in the following sectionals:
17.04, 15.23, 14.15, 11.57, 11.49
She went to the river on Wednesday morning (video below). She likes to follow the other horses when she is wading in the river and we think she has figured out if she stays in another horses wake it is easier to walk than if she has to break through the water herself.
