Real Impact x Saltator

Stella, our Real Impact filly, had another good week. The video below is her 3/4 pace on Tuesday morning.

She had a practice jumpout of the barrier and galloped up 400m this morning. She is second from the camera (blue helmet cover) in the video below.

We are planning to press on to the jumpouts on the 6th of November where she will gallop over 800m. She is currently having a growth spurt which means she is a bit tired and sore and she spends a lot of time lying down. We will have to take the next couple of weeks day by day depending on how she is coping. She is still eating really well.

Cosmic Barb

Cosmic Barb had another good week, continuing to improve and get stronger. She jumped out of the barriers this morning and of the young horses, she was fastest into a gallop and ran up the 400m very well. She is third from the camera in the video above (black helmet cover). We are aiming to take her to the jumpouts on the 6th of November where she will gallop over 800m.

The videos below are her 3/4 pace work on Tuesday and her trotting on the bush track on Wednesday morning. She is doing great and we are very pleased with her progress.

Times Change

Times Change has shown excellent progress this week. She improved significantly in her practice jumpout today. It was only her second time jumping out of the gates this prep and she jumped with the other horses and galloped up 400m very well. She was also much calmer when waiting in the barriers this week. She is furthest from the camera in the video below.

We are aiming to keep her in training for another fortnight to go to the jumpouts on the 6th of November. If she continues to handle the training well, it will be great experience for her to get an 800m jumpout done this prep.

She loves going for a relaxing trot on the bush track. It is a good way to break up her week and give her a rest from trackwork. She is following in the video below.

Boomahnoomoonah, Dragon's Breath

Boomahnoomoonah and Dragons Breath have been progressing through their pace work very well. They are both aiming to jumpout on the 6th of November. The video above is their 3/4 pace on Tuesday.

Hay Bale

Hay Bale has come to hand much quicker than expected after his short paddock break so he had a jumpout at Moruya this morning. He is in the lead the whole way in the video above. He travelled along beautifully and was strong to the line without being asked. He pulled up good and was moving well this afternoon.

We are planning to race him at Kembla Grange on the 14th of November and then onto the Open races at Moruya over the Summer.

Kattegat

Kattegat had his first jumpout for the prep at Moruya this morning. He is in the pink colours, sitting in third position for the majority of the heat in the video above. He travelled nicely throughout the trial and accelerated well to the line to take the lead. His rider Maddy said he switched off as soon as he hit the front and he thought he had won. You can see his right ear flicking towards the other horse on the helmet cam footage as he waits for them to catch him again.

He wasn’t blowing too much after the heat and he is moving good this afternoon. We are planning on jumping him out again on the 6th of November.

Airfree

Airfree had a good first jumpout for the prep at Moruya this morning. She is sitting 3rd in the pink colours in the video above. She came out of the turn travelling but just levelled off in her acceleration in the straight. The winner of the heat was Hay Bale. She wasn’t blowing too hard when she returned to the stalls and she ate all her breakfast and was moving good this afternoon.

We are planning to take her to Gundagai on the 13th of November for her first start. She may jumpout again on the 6th depending on how she is going next week.

Airfree

Airfree had her first gallop for the prep on Tuesday (video above). She will be ready to have a jumpout on Wednesday 21st of October.

Times Change

Times Change is coming along well after her minor setback with a cold. She has resumed pace work and had a practice jumpout of the barrier this morning. She is on the far left in the video below, furthest from the camera. She was the slowest out of the gates but the two other young horses, in the middle two gates, both had a practice jump last week which she missed out on because she was sick. She was very good in the barriers and will jump faster next week when she has another practice.

Kattegat

Kattegat is aiming to jumpout next Wednesday 21st of October. Click above for video update.

Boomahnoomoonah

Boomahnoomoonah continues to impress this time in. She is powering her way through her pace work and should be ready for a jumpout on the 6th of November. She is stronger and more confident this prep and we are looking forward to getting her back to the races.

Sarzana

Sarzana is racing tomorrow at Sapphire Coast. She has been performing very well at TAB level country races but we couldn’t find a suitable race for her so she will be going to the Non-TAB meeting. She has been working well and we expect her to be a good chance. The race she is in is named in recognition of us winning the Sapphire Coast Trainer Premiership last season, so we would especially like her to win our own race.

Pahang

Pahang continues to build his fitness by cantering each morning. He will be ready to start pace work next week.

Hay Bale

Hay Bale started galloping this week and he will be ready to jumpout next Wednesday 21st of October.

Tornac

Tornac is into his second week of cantering. He has settled in great since arriving. He is strong on the track and eats everything that is put in front of him. He will do a few weeks of cantering before starting fast work.
