Sarzana is back at the stables after a couple of weeks in the paddock. She put on a lot of weight for such a short break. We plan to have her ready for Moruya on April 12th if she regains her fitness quick enough. Click above for video update.
Sarzana has come through her Yass victory great and will be nominated to race again at Moruya on the 16th of March. The confidence she gained from going picnic racing has made her a consistent performer who always tries her best.
Sarzana has pulled up great from her good performance at Canberra. She will be nominated for the sprint race at the Yass Picnic meeting on Saturday 29th of February.
Sarzana returns to the races this weekend at Sapphire Coast. She is entered both days and the weather conditions will determine which race she contests. She finished 2019 on a hot streak with a series of good performances and it will be good to see her back at the races.
Sarzana had her first gallop back this morning and it looks like she ate all the food when the horses were sharing paddocks when they evacuated due to the bushfires. She was very puffed after this morning’s hit out and will need to do a bit more work before she goes racing.
Maddy Wright got to ride one of her favourites to victory when Sarzana took out the Class B over 1200m at Bong Bong on Friday. Maddy does all of Sarzana’s trackwork and she gave her a great ride to finish off a fun day at the Picnics.
The video of her race is below with the crowd lining the both the outside and inside fence for the whole length of the straight:
Gossip is racing on Thursday at Sapphire Coast (Race 4 at 3:45pm). She has barrier 6 and Shaun Guymer will be riding. She had her final sprint up on Tuesday morning with Sarzana who will be in the same race. Gossip is on the inside in the video above. Gossip had Sarzana covered in the gallop on Tuesday but we expect both horses to perform well tomorrow. Sarzana will sit near the front and Gossip will settle and work home.
Sarzana had a solid jumpout this morning at Moruya. She finishes 2nd in the video above, her rider is wearing an orange vest and white cap. She wore the tongue tie for the first time and finished off much better so she will now wear it when racing. They worked over the 800m in 46.60s and the last 600m in 34.03.
Sarzana is aiming to race at Sapphire Coast on the 31st of October.
Sarzana is back from her short freshen up in the paddock. She had a gallop on the course proper this morning and her rider reported that she worked very strong to the line (video above). Her poor race performances have been a mystery so we are hoping the break will bring her back to her best.
Sarzana races tomorrow at Moruya in Race 6 at 4:15pm. She will be ridden by Jess Taylor from barrier 6 over the 1435m distance. She will aim to sit just off the speed and going off her recent performances, she should be fighting out the finish.
Sarzana is entered to race on Sunday at Moruya in the Class 2 1425m. Her gallop from Tuesday morning is the video above.
Sarzana and Judy in Disguise will race each other again at Sapphire Coast on Sunday.
They have both come through their Moruya race well and had a gallop together on Wednesday morning (video above). They worked up the straight together in:
Gossip had a solid gallop with Sarzana on Saturday morning (video above).
We are going to send Gossip to the jumpouts on Tuesday morning to give her additional practice going Sydney way before she races at Moruya on Monday 15th July.
Sarzana is also racing at Moruya where she will enter the Class 1 1200m.
All of Gossip’s videos are now available on the Thorotek App.
Sarzana had a good jumpout at Moruya this morning over 800m. She travelled well and finished off strong. She ran the 800m in 46.25 seconds and the final 600m in 33.28 seconds.
Sarzana is aiming to barrier trial at Moruya on Friday 28th June.
The video of the jumpout is above and the helmet camera video is below.
Sarzana had her first gallop this prep on Friday (pink colours in video above).
She has been working well and will have a jumpout on Thursday 20th June. She has to trial before she is allowed to race again so we are planning on trialling her at Moruya on the 28th of June.
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.
