The Beast from the South East had a solid jumpout at Moruya this morning (video above). He was strong to the line and although the times were hand timed and may be a bit optimistic, he galloped very well. He now heads towards Moruya on April 12th.
Pauper had his first jumpout for the prep at Moruya this morning (video above). He was very puffed when he pulled up so he will have a second jumpout on the 1st of April before he goes racing.
Pauper started galloping this week and he is ready to have a jumpout on Wednesday 18th. We are very happy with his condition and his work going into the jumpout. He is much stronger and more mature in his body and his head since last prep and we are looking forward to getting back to the races.
Pauper is building up his pace work and will be ready to gallop next week. He made his first trip to the river for this prep during the week (video above) and he will be ready for a jumpout on the 18th.
Pauper is now in week 4 of his prep and he started pace work on Tuesday morning. He is coming along great and he will likely be ready for a jumpout on the 19th of March.
Pauper has been struggling with a bruised foot since returning to the stables more than a week ago. He has only been able to work a couple of days and although the sole is hardening, he will come right much faster if he is given a week or two on the grass.
The Moruya Cup has been rescheduled for April 12th so having a couple more weeks off now and starting afresh at the beginning of February will be good timing for that too. The video above is when we let him go in the paddock this morning. He is 100% sound when he is running on the grass which is a great sign for a quick recovery.
Pauper has been galloping well since his last race and he had a solid hit out this morning with Hay Bale (final gallop in the video above). The weather for Saturday is forecast to be extremely hot so Racing NSW has moved the meeting from Warwick Farm in Western Sydney to Randwick. Even so, it is still forecast to be in the high 30’s.
We have nominated Pauper for the Highway Handicap on Saturday and for the meeting at Moruya on Sunday as a plan B if the weather or smoke is too risky for Pauper to travel to Sydney.
Pauper has bounced back from his Rosehill race quicker than expected and he should be ready to return to the Highway Handicap, this time at Warwick Farm on the 21st of December. He had an easy week, cantering and to the river, since his race and he will do some pace work tomorrow if the bush fire smoke is not too bad.
Pauper is coming along great as he heads towards the Highway Handicap at Rosehill on the 30th of November. The video above is his gallop on Friday where he was hard held and working strong to the line. The nominations will be out on Monday and fields published Wednesday morning. Tommy Berry has been booked to ride.
Pauper started pace work again this week and will have a gallop on Saturday. The video above is his 3/4 pace from Thursday morning. He is coming along great as we aim for Rosehill on the 30th.

Congratulations to all of Pauper’s owners! He made it back to back wins at Nowra on Sunday with an impressive finish in the Class 1 over 1200m. Patrick Scorse gave him another great ride and Pauper showed he has developed into a serious racehorse.

We will aim to race Pauper again at Nowra on the 20th in the Class 1 over 1200m.
The race photos are available on the Bradley Photos website including some great shots of his happy owners accepting the trophy. Congratulations to all of Pauper’s connections!

He looks strong and healthy and we are looking forward to seeing him back at the races.

Pauper is coming along well and will start galloping tomorrow. The video above is his 3/4 pace work last week and below is him walking off the track.
