Real Salty

Real Salty is doing very well in the paddock. She was very tired for the first week but she is feeling great now, squealing and zooming around when we visit. She is getting taller each month and is going to be a big girl when she is fully grown. We are planning to have her back at the stables around the 13th of September. The photo above was taken today.

Real Salty was unfortunately eliminated from the races on Friday because there were not enough scratchings so we gave her a jumpout this morning at Moruya. Her rider is in white sleeves in the video above. She is still learning so when she races we don’t want her to lead from the gates but today she jumped so well she landed in front. She was a bit wayward on her own and will definitely be better with some other horses around her.

We plan to nominate her for the 2YO 1010m at Moruya on the 12th of July.

Real Salty is entered to race at Moruya on Friday in the 1010m Maiden (Race 2 at 12:35pm). She is an emergency and currently needs one more scratching to gain a start. Please click above for her video update.

Real Salty had her second jumpout at Moruya this morning (video above). Shaun Guymer came down to Moruya to ride all our jumpouts and he rode Real Salty in a race saddle to practise the smaller saddle and girth on her. She was much better than at her first race start when she really disliked the small saddle. She jumped well and led the heat. She started to float in the straight so Shaun just pushed her to the line to keep her focused and on task. The heat was run in a good time and we are happy to take her racing off today’s performance. We plan to take her to the Maiden over 1010m at Moruya on the 25th of June.

Real Salty is having her second jumpout on Wednesday this week. Shaun Guymer is coming down to ride her in a race saddle to prepare her for her return to the races. She had a solid gallop with Boom and Zoom this week and is doing very well this time in.

Real Salty had a good performance at the jumpouts this morning at Moruya (her rider is wearing pink in the video above). She was a little nervous in the gates but she jumped well and just got a little tired in the closing stages. She has not done much galloping yet this prep so her fitness is still improving. She will have a second jumpout on the 2nd of June.

Real Salty has pulled up okay from her first race. She is still eating well and she looks very good physically, she is just a little frazzled from the experience. She did some 3/4 pace work on Friday morning and she was keen to run. We will gallop her on Tuesday with a race saddle on. The race saddle she wore at Canberra was tiny with a narrow girth and we think the change in gear was what upset her in the mounting yard. After Tuesday morning we will decide if she will race again this prep or go for a break.

Real Salty

Real Salty will start her journey to a race start on Wednesday morning when she has her first barrier trial at Kembla Grange. She had a good jumpout at home and it is time to step up the pressure with a trip away and a trial in a bigger field and a more serious environment. The fields will be published on Monday afternoon.

Real Salty had a solid jumpout this morning at Moruya (pink colours, grey cap in video above). She loaded into the gates perfectly but reared twice while she was waiting. She was in the air when the gates opened so she missed the start by about a length. She quickly picked up the leader and worked strongly to the line.

She is moving good this afternoon but we will have to see how she is over the next couple of days. We will aim to trial her within the next fortnight.

Real Salty

Real Salty is coming along great and had a nice gallop with two mates on Saturday morning. She is having a jumpout tomorrow and the video will be posted around lunchtime. She is still achy occasionally as she continues to grow but she never stops eating and she has a cheerful and willing attitude.
