Track Work 1 September 2016

Stable mates and Wanganui candidates LUNA ROSSA and HIGHLAD completed their final work in good style this morning.

Very few horses galloped this morning because several local horses were entered for a jump out session scheduled for later in the day.

Working on a slow No 4 grass LUNA ROSSA and HIGHLAD came to the end of a comfortable 1000m in 1:9 sprinting the final 600m in 39.4. HIGHLAD, who made an impressive winning debut, looks a strong chance in the Wanganui Guineas.

LUNA ROSSA will be starting her fresh campaign in The O’Leary’s Fillies Stakes and will be tough to beat.

Galloping on the No 2 grass WOODEN EDGE, who will attempt to make it four wins on end at Wanganui travelled nicely alongside SUPERARE from the 800m in 51 the last 600m in 37.7.

ARZAK looked fit for Ellerslie when completing 1200m in 1:24.5 running the final 600m in 38.2.

CELEBRITY MISS cut out 600m in 38. BLUE WAGON and SHOT IN THE DARK sprinted 600m in 37.

On the sand MAUI MISS and LET ME ROAR ran 600m in 40:2. GATA and IT’S ALL FUN followed in 41. THE MAGNATE completed 600m in 40.9.

Race 1: Promises | Eletist | Arzak.
