Track Work – Thursday, 8 May 2014


Decorah looked at peak fitness for racing at Rotorua this weekend when galloping at Cambridge today

Working 12 metres out on a heavy No.2 Grass, Decorah (Jago) left 1000m behind in 1:8, sprinting the final 600m in 39.7.   She travelled nicely throughout and looks a good each way chance this weekend.

In form Kelly O’Reilly (Collins) did her Rotorua prospects no harm when coming in from the 600m in 39.4.   Posy (Texeira) followed up good Tuesday work with a nice 600m in 41.3. Last start winner El Tyson (Wenn) was well held throughout his gallop, coming home the last 600m in 42.   Demarco (Leung) was clocked from the 600m in 41. Bachelor Zeel (Ivil) came to the end of 1200m in 1:26 and 41.7.

Sahkee’s Soldier (Jago) enhanced his Rotorua chances, with a nice workout over 1000m, the last 600m in 39.6.   Big Bounty (Cooper) worked well alongside stablemate Enjay (Macfarlane) over 12oom in 1:20.1, coming home in 39.1.   Readywhenyouare (Hills) was timed over the last 600m of work in 39.

Turn Me Loose (Satherley) and Orion (Jago) worked attractively over 800m, sprinting the last 600m in 38.6. Smart two year old Alta Ego (Gatu) completed 600m in 1:6.7 and 39.1.     Mitcham (Hills) cut out 1000m in 1:7.6 and 40.6.   Luxury Liz (Cooper) ran the last 600m of her work in 39.4.   Maia’s Angel (Young) and War Story (Donoghue) were paired over 600m in 38.5.

Working on the sand, Zonza (Macfarlane) was sent 1000m at three quarter pace, quickening from the 600m in 40.1.   Zeldara (Legg) and Diamond Edge (Satherley) returned 40.7 for 600m.   Smile and Wave (Hills) ran 600m in 41:7.
