After another disappointing performance from Pulla Swifty at Canberra, we have decided to sell her. We have had “Jay” for three years and we will miss her but wish her good luck at her new stables.

Pulla Swifty had a disappointing performance at Sapphire Coast but her jockey reported that she had choked down in the race and this likely explains her dropping out.

We will give her another start at Canberra on the 24th.

Pulla Swifty will step up to 1600m when she races at Sapphire Coast on Sunday. She has been working well since her last start and we think the step up in distance will suit. Nominations will be released on Tuesday morning.

Pulla Swifty is up galloping now at trackwork and is coming along well. We are aiming to take her straight to the races with her first start being the 1010m Maiden at Moruya on the 9th of April.

She has been working with a mate most days this prep which shows a big improvement in her behaviour and should allow us to try and settle her a bit better in her races.

Pulla Swifty started pace work this week. She has been working really well with a mate each day and is controllable and settled. She went for a trail ride on Wednesday and she is also becoming a lot more clam on the bush track.

Pulla Swifty has been back at the stables for two weeks of slow work. She has been working around well with a friend and should be ready to start some pace work next week.

Pulla Swifty is enjoying her spell and is due back at the stables mid February.

We had planned to race Pulla Swifty on Monday at Moruya but unfortunately, she has gone off her food and is not 100% so we have elected to spell her. She will have a six week break in the paddock before returning to work.

Pulla Swifty finally drew a good barrier at Moruya on the 23rd and we elected to go forward but she couldn’t sustain her run over the 1300m on the pace. We still think she will be well suited to a mile if she can settle and work home so we are going to enter her in the 1425m Maiden at Moruya on the 7th.

Pulla Swifty had a very good track gallop of Tuesday morning, working hard next to our good sprinter, Malachi Crunch.

She is learning to settle in the early stages of her work and finished off running very quick times:

17.06, 14.30, 14.32, 11.36, 10.96

She is definitely ready to step up in distance and is entered in the 1300m Maiden at Moruya on Sunday. We are looking forward to seeing her race over 1600m when a suitable race is available.

Her whole attitude is changing for the better and she had a relaxing ride on the bush trail this morning, something that would have severely stressed her six months ago.

Sapphire Coast Races 3/12/18


Belle Tournure kicked off her prep with a brilliant victory at Sapphire Coast on Monday. It was a tricky day of racing with the track heavily favouring leaders but Belle was able to defy the pattern of the day and come from behind to win. Robbie Brewer gave her a perfect ride and her determination got her over the line.

Belle has pulled up well and will aim to race again at Moruya on the 23rd of December.

Pulla Swifty settled quite well in her race but couldn’t make up any ground in the finish. She is ready to step up in distance now and will plan to race over 1300m at Moruya on the 23rd.

Millijule was unable to make up ground from the corner and battled away to finish 6th. Her racing style is not well suited to Sapphire Coast when it is playing in favour of leaders because she needs such a long wind up. She has pulled up well and went to the river this morning with Georgian Court who also raced on Monday. Georgian Court had an awkward run and would really prefer a wetter track.

Pulla Swifty galloped with Living Doll on Thursday and she worked much better with a mate. She was controlled but finished off the gallop strongly.

The furlong sectionals were:

15.30, 14.27, 11.46, 11.25

Pulla Swifty is entered to race at Sapphire Coast on Monday.

We had planned on racing Living Doll at Kembla Grange on Saturday but the track will be too wet for her. She is going to the paddock for a week off next week and will then aim to race at Moruya on the 23rd of December.

Pulla Swifty

Pulla Swifty galloped on the course proper this morning on her own. She worked from the 1000m mark and she galloped well but just switched off the last 200m. She will work with a mate before racing at Sapphire Coast on the 3rd of December to get her to focus on finishing off. Her furlong sectionals from the 800m were:

14.79, 14.26, 11.69, 12.00

Pulla Swifty

Pulla Swifty had her first morning of pacework since her short freshen up. She worked 3/4 pace over 1000m on the course proper.

She has been a lot calmer since she returned to the stables and we hope to see her learning to settle a bit in her racing this prep. She is aiming to race at Sapphire Coast on the 3rd of December.

Pulla Swifty

Pulla Swifty had an easy canter this morning with the stable pony for her first day back at the stables. She has been resting in the paddock for the past two weeks.

We will be aiming to race her at Sapphire Coast on the 3rd of December.
