Track Work – Thursday, 18th September 2014

Sacred Star looked ready to produce his best when preparing for Saturday’s Group 1 Windsor Park Plate with a nice workout on the No.1 Grass at Cambridge today

Working on a slow track Sacred Star (Ormsby) cruised comfortably from the 1200m in 1:12.5 completing the final 600m in 41.7. Sacred Star was unlucky at his last start when blocked for a run at a vital stage.

Turn Me Loose (Satherley) and Sydney Carton (Jago) were sent 1200m in 1:21, finishing off in a smart 37.   Kelly O’Reilly (Ormsby) was not fully extended when running 600m in 41.9.

Galloping on the No.4 Grass, Superare (Gatu) looked fit for Te Aroha when completing 1000m with stablemate Budweiser (Jackson) in 1:6.4, sprinting the last 600m in 39.1.   One Direction (Thornton) and Amun Ra (Holmquist) matched strides from the 800m, covering the last 600m in 41.3.

Feelin the Love (Pedro) came to the end of 600m in 39.7.   Mr Knowitall (Carter) did his weekend chances no harm when running 600m comfortably in 42.2.   Bonniegirl (Legg) and Dentelle (Orting) looked fit for weekend racing when completing 1000m in 1:9, their final 600m in 40.

Readywhenyouare (Hills) strode an easy 1000m, the last 600m in 41.7.   Best Command (Pedro) did well over 600m in 38.3.   Pink Diamond (Browne) followed in 39.7.   Zanotti (Tatte) left 600m behind in 43.8.   Silver Minx (Foote) ran 600m in 39.2.   And Apache Taat (medium weight) was clocked from the 1000m in 1:9.2, finishing off in 39.2.

Galloping on the sand, Maygrove (Satherley) and Works Wonders (Legg) were paired over 1000m in 1:8 and 39.4.   Never in Doubt (Norvall) and Grace Hill (Hills) strode in comfortably from the 1000m in 1:11, coming home in 40.3.   Highland Park (Satherley) returned 41.2 for 600m.   The Tidy Express (Dalley) came in from the 1000m in 1:8 and 39.9.   And Royal Toast (Hayley) ran the last 600m of easy work in 41.7.
