Track Work – Thursday, 24 October 2013


Sacred Park completed his preparation for Saturdays Wellington Guineas with a stylish workout at Cambridge this morning 

Galloping on a good No.1 Grass, Sacred Park (Donoghue) was sent 1000m in 1.6 sprinting the final 600m in 37.   He looks in excellent order and should continue his impressive form. 

Working on the No.2 Grass, Ignition (Tiko) left 800m behind in 51.6.   Undertheradar (Roustoby) worked nicely from the 1000m in 1.6:1 coming home in 38.4.  Storm In (Logan) strode 1000m in 1.10:2 with the final 600m in 39.2. 

On the plough, Wellington candidates Neo (Waddell) and Sakhee’s Soldier (Legg) worked nicely together covering the final 600m in 39, both look like strong chances this weekend.   Chill Bill (Legg) came to the end of 1200m in 1.21:7, finishing off in 38.3.   Sir Lancealot (Browne) and Axle Rose (E Browne) were given a comfortable 1000m in 1.14 and 40sec for the last 600m. 

Posh (Macfarlane) was clocked from the 1200m in 1.25:9 and 42sec.  Arzak (Orash) came in from the 600m in 38.2.  Brela Belle (Berg) looked fit for Ellerslie this weekend when completing 800m with Alt Control (Ivil) in a smart 49.8.   Blizzard (D Browne) and Dresdon Park (E Browne) ran a comfortable 600m in 43.4.  Black Hennessey (Blane) was sent 1400m at three quarter pace, quickening over the last 600m in 38.4. 

On the No.4 Grass, Mia’s Angel (McNab) and an Exceed and Excell filly, from the Bussuttin – Young stable, completed 600m in 42.3.
