Pahang continues to build his fitness by cantering each morning. He will be ready to start pace work next week.

Pahang had a relaxing day at the river last Friday (he is at the back in the video above) as he prepares to race at Moruya tomorrow. He is in Race 7 over 1435m.
Pahang is racing at Goulburn on Friday (Race 6 at 3:25pm). The race is a BM58 over 1200m and Shaun Guymer is riding him from barrier 6. We accepted in the Class 2 over 1200m as well because he would carry less weight, but the recent form of the other horses in that race was stronger and we think the BM58 is the best option.
We have put the blinkers on him, like Shaun suggested last race, to help him focus and run straight. The plan is settle him, like last start, and have him finishing off strong.
It is always hard to step up from Maiden grade and the track is currently rated Heavy, which he is untested on. If he handles the conditions, he is an each way chance.
Pahang pulled up good from his victory on Tuesday at Moruya. Click above for a video update from trackwork this morning.
He was still very green in the race and will benefit from having the blinkers added next start. The race photos are available at https://bradleyphotos.com.au/Home/Gallery?id=130387
Congratulations to all his owners! We will aim to race him again at Goulburn on the 14th.
Pahang has a good recovery session at the river on Wednesday morning. He is closest to the camera in the video below. This was only his second time at the river and he really loves it.
We will have to wait one more week before we get to take Pahang racing after Moruya was called off this week. We have him entered to run at Goulburn next Monday (race 6 at 3:40pm).
Pahang had his first gallop last Saturday and he came into the straight flying (on the outside in the video above). He is still learning but we are happy with how he is coming along and we have nominated him for Moruya next Monday. We have taken the blinkers off and will just let him get back to basics. He is still green but he will get confidence from being on his home track.
The video below is him doing 3/4 pace on his own this morning. He will have a sprint up on Friday.
Pahang started pace work this morning. He will aim to race at Moruya on the 13th of July. He only had a short break so he should be able to get fit enough in time.
The video below is him coming off the track today (he is in the lead):
