Sarzana has been back in work for two weeks and she is building up her fitness cantering each morning (video above).
Sarzana had an uncharacteristic poor performance at Sapphire Coast on Friday and will now go out for a spell. She had a great prep, scoring a win, two seconds and a third and picking up a BOBS Bonus with her Maiden victory.
She will spend a month in the paddock before returning to training.
Sarzana has been working well since her race at Nowra and she had a good sprint up on Tuesday morning, galloping up the straight in:
She is entered to race at Sapphire Coast on Friday and should be a good chance in the Class 1 over 1600m.
Sarzana is racing today at Nowra. She was entered to run at Canberra on Friday but we elected to run today in what looks to be an easier field, even though she has a wide gate.
She had a nice sprint up on Friday (video above) and her work has been very good since her last race three weeks ago.
Sarzana has pulled up well from her last race and she did some 3/4 pace on Saturday morning (video above).
She will aim to race again at Canberra on the 22nd or Nowra on the 25th of February.
Sarzana is ready to tackle a Class 1 at Sapphire Coast on Saturday following her maiden victory at Moruya last week. She galloped with The Amazing Tahlia on Tuesday (video above) and she was strong to the line running the following sectionals:
15.41, 14.48, 12.73, 10.95, 11.32
Sarzana will step up in distance to 1400m this start.
Sarzana has come through her maiden victory brilliantly. She is eating better than ever and let out a big squeal as she walked onto the track this morning.
She had an easy week cantering and at the river (photo below following Resort).
She is aiming to race again at Sapphire Coast next weekend.
Living Doll is entered to race at Moruya on Monday in the BM58 over 1020m. She has a lot of weight but with Pat Scorse’s claim she will carry 60.5kg.
She galloped with Sarzana on Tuesday morning (video above) and they worked home in very quick time:
17.15, 14.11, 14.10, 11.51, 10.96
Sarzana is also entered to race at Moruya on Monday over 1210m and we think she is knocking on the door to break her maiden status.
Sarzana has recovered well after her race at Moruya on Monday. She ran a really good race and we are confident she will break her maiden very soon. She took a couple of days of easy work to fully eat up but she is back to herself now and ready to tackle the 1200m Maiden at Moruya on the 21st of January.
Sarzana had her final sprint up this morning before she races at Moruya on Monday in the $40K Maiden. She worked with Malachi Crunch and they ran up the last two furlongs in:
Sarzana has been having a pretty easy time since her last start, just ticking over in the summer heat, including a trail ride with Resort earlier in the week (video below).
Sarzana had a much improved run at Moruya before Christmas and she has recovered well. She will race again at Moruya on the 7th in the $40,000 Country Maiden.
Sarsana has come through her jumpout very well but has developed a foot abscess this week. She has not missed any work but we need it to draw out quickly to have her at 100% to race on Sunday at Moruya. She went to the river this morning (video above – last horse) and the salt water will help to bring the heat and swelling out of her leg.
Her work and attitude this preparation have been the polar opposite to last time she was in work and we are really looking forward to her returning to the races.
She is entered in the 920m Maiden, which is probably a touch short for her, but we expect her to race well.
As our team of horses head towards the Moruya summer racing meetings, Sarzana and Malachi Crunch jumped out this morning to help prepare them for the races on the 23rd of December.
Sarzana had a nice trial, never under pressure and worked the last two furlongs in:
She is still a maiden and will be nominated for the 920m.
Malachi Crunch had a good hit out in a fast trial. His ClockIt GPS sectionals for the last 600m were:
10.60, 10.46, 11.77
He will be taking on the Christmas Flying over 1010m.
Malachi Crunch and Sarzana galloped on the course proper on Tuesday morning. They worked together up the straight very well and their furlong sectionals from the 800m were:
15.13, 14.81, 11.33, 11.43
They are both on track for a jumpout next Tuesday.
Sarzana and Malachi Crunch are both working their way towards a jumpout on the 11th of December. They galloped together on the course proper on Saturday morning and their furlong sectionals were:
15.25, 14.48, 11.33, 11.35
They are both planning on resuming racing at the Moruya meeting on the 23rd of December.
The Amazing Tahlia and Millijule had a recovery session at the river this morning after yesterday’s gallops. Sarzana went along with them for her first trip to the river and was very well behaved.
Sarzana (pink) is back in work after a short spell in the paddock. Her performance at Moruya in September was too bad to be true and she has been acting quite different since she returned to the stables so we suspect she was suffering from a virus when she raced and performed so poorly.
Our Artie Schiller filly is ready to start pace work next week. She will be aiming to have a barrier trial this time in and hopefully a race start. We will decide on a name for her and have her registered this month so she is ready to go when her fitness improves.
It was a busy day of racing for our stable at the September Moruya meeting.
We had two runners in the 1425m Maiden, Unbridled Princess and Sarzana. Unbridled Princess had a tough run, sitting wide the whole race, but she showed some improvement to finish 10th. She is still racing greenly and lacks confidence under pressure. She will race again at Moruya on the 14th of October, stepping up to 1650m and the blinkers will go on.
Sarzana was having her first start for our stable but she got wobbly and faltered mid way up the straight. She recovered very poorly from the race and we have turned her out for a spell. She will be back in four weeks to start afresh.
Pulla Swifty stepped up to 1200m and drew a very wide gate again, as has been the case for her whole career. She pushed forward to sit outside the leader and put up a great race to finish 4th, beaten 2.7 lengths. Her race craft is really starting to improve and she will race again at Moruya on the 14th of October, again over 1200m.
Georgian Court was our other new runner, having her first start for our stable in the 1200m Class 2. We elected to go forward from the wide gate but she was run off her feet and faded out to finish 10th. She will race again at Moruya on the 14th of October and would really appreciate a wet track.
Malachi Crunch put in another wonderful run on his home track to finish 3rd, beaten only 1.1 lengths. He has been up racing since February this prep and has achieved six top 4 finishes, including one win. He will go to the paddock for a break before the summer racing begins.
Millijule was the final runner for the day and she also put in a really pleasing run. She finished off the last 50m like a steam train and was only beaten 2.6 lengths, but ended up 10th in the bunched finish. She will race again at Moruya on the 14th of October and looks to be in for a good prep.
