Track Work 24 October 2019

ARETHA, one of many local chances in Saturday’s Barneswood Farm Soliloquy Stakes for three year old fillies at Ellerslie, completed her preparation with easy work on the No. 4 grass (slow).

ARETHA completed a comfortable 1000m in 1:10.3, running the last 600m in 39.5. She worked well on Tuesday and looks to have improved since her fresh up win.

DIAMONDS GALORE, another Baker/Forsman filly with top prospects in the 1400m feature, galloped nicely alongside SHE’S A LADY from the 1000m in 1:7.1, finishing off in 38.5. She steps up in class this weekend but has plenty of talent and a big run is expected.

On the No. 2 grass (slow) GO NICHOLAS maintained a solid clip over 800m in 49.8. He has copped a wide ally at Ellerslie but is in good form and should race well again.

TRAVELLING LIGHT, who could not have been more impressive last start, looked fit for the Barneswood Farm Soliloquy Stakes when sent 800m with WINKLEBELL, run in a steady 52, the last 600m in 37.3.

SEVEN SEAS was traveling well at the completion of 800m, the final 600m in 39. BATTLE TIME followed in 40.6. BOLT FROM THE BLUE, who has been working well lately, came in from the 600m in 38.8.

INTRIGUE was in top form when clocked the last 600m of work in 37.4. ROCKLEY BEACH was sent 1000m in an easy 1:10 and 40.4. ATHENA BABY and UNACCEPTABLE matched strides over 2000m, the last 1000m in an impressive 1:3.1 and the 600m in 38.

LUCETTA and ELLE EYE ARE returned the fastest gallop of the morning when finishing 1000m in 1:1.9, sprinting home in 35.9. RUSAVY left 1000m behind in 1:8 and 37.7. BUTTERFIELD ran 600m in 43.1.

On the No. 1 grass, HASSTOBEGOOD enhanced her Barneswood Farm Soliloquy Stakes with nice work over 1000m in 1:6.2, the last 600m in 39.7. LOIRE was full of running at the completion of 1000m in 1:9.4 and 40. ENDLESS DRAMA was timed from the 600m in 41.

BONITA AURELIA ran 600m on the inside of the No. 4 grass in 39. She is a winner of two recent trials but will have to overcome a wide draw in the two year old sprint at Ellerslie.

Top pick | Race 8 at 4.34 pm | Barneswood Farm Soliloquy Stakes | ARETHA
