Horse Updates

Hay Bale

Hay Bale has really come on from his jumpout and he is much more switched on. His gallops have improved and he is heading towards his second jumpout on the 9th of July.

The video above is his gallop on Friday with Airfree. They worked from the 1000m mark in the following sectionals:

17.08, 15.50, 14.19, 11.83, 11.10


No Emotion

No Emotion has settled in very well this past week. He is eating well and is happy doing his work. His first couple of pace work mornings going Sydney way were a bit unbalanced but his gallop on Saturday (video above) was good and he had no trouble taking the turn.

We are planning on racing him at Moruya on the 15th of July in the BM66 over 1425m.

Minnie Malachi

Minnie Malachi successfully completed her first barrier trial on Friday and has been passed to start racing.

The video of the trial can be viewed here.

She had good barrier manners and jumped quickly, mustering a bit too much early speed. We would have ideally liked to see her ridden a bit more conservatively in the early stages and finish off the trial better. Her jockey said she was tractable and would have come back if asked so we are not concerned that she will over race when she has her first start.

Her brother, Malachi Crunch, also began his racing career trying to lead up the field but we know he is much better sitting back and sprinting home, so this is what we will plan to do with Minnie Malachi too.

She was a bit sore after the trial and overly anxious so we have sent her to the paddock for 3 to 4 weeks to just relax and get over the whole experience. Now she has her barrier certificate, she can work up to a race much more quickly when she returns to the stables.


Georgian Court

Georgian Court has come through her 2nd place run at Sapphire Coast very well and will head to Moruya races on Friday. She is closest to the camera in the video above taken at the river last Friday.

Heavenly Thunder

Heavenly Thunder is aiming to race again at Moruya on Friday. We have changed her gear in an effort to stop her charging and hanging during the race and her trackwork has been much better this week. The video above is her gallop on Saturday morning.

Malachi Crunch

Malachi Crunch and Depreciation are both on track to race at Moruya on Friday. The video above is their gallop on Saturday morning (Malachi Crunch is on the outside).

Hay Bale

Hay Bale had his first jumpout of the prep this morning at Moruya. Unfortunately due to a scratching, there were only two horses in the heat but he performed well and it gave him a good gallop. He jumped well and lengthened out in the straight to finish off strongly. The video is above and the helmet camera video is below.

We will see how he pulls up from today and decide if he needs another jumpout or if he can go straight to the races.



Sarzana had a good jumpout at Moruya this morning over 800m. She travelled well and finished off strong. She ran the 800m in 46.25 seconds and the final 600m in 33.28 seconds.

Sarzana is aiming to barrier trial at Moruya on Friday 28th June.

The video of the jumpout is above and the helmet camera video is below.



Airfree had another solid jumpout this morning at Moruya. She jumped with the field but was a little slow to muster in the first few strides. She travelled at the back of the field and worked home well in the straight. The jumpout was run in the very good time of 45.84 seconds over 800m and 33.74 seconds for the last 600m.

Airfree is aiming to resume racing this prep at Nowra on the 5th of July.

The video of this morning’s jumpout is above and the helmet camera video is below.

We welcomed Train the Brave to the stables last week from Victoria. He has settled in well. Click above for a video update.
