Track Work – Thursday 15th Novermber, 2012

Talented three year old Touch Win completed his preparation for Tauranga this weekend in good style at Cambridge today. 

Galloping on a good plough Touch Win (Dalley) was sent a comfortable 1200m in 1:23.8, increasing speed over the last 600m in 38.4.   He looks set for another winning run on Saturday.     

Lady Chaparral (Hughes), who will attempt back to back wins in the Stella Artois Stakes at Gate Pa, kept up a strong pace from the 1200m in 1:14, the last 600m in 35.5.   She should again run prominently on Saturday.   Pouri Chimes (Ormsby) worked in nicely from the 800m in 53.6.   Jeu de Cartes (Murphy) left 1000m behind in 1:8.7, the 600m in 39.2.   Lady Kipling (Orting) and Misstar (Karlsson) came to the end of 1000, in 1:7.4 and 38.9.   Thunderbird One (Orting) and Snave (Hutton) were paired over 800m in 53.5. 

Her to Eternity (German), who ran an eye catching race at her most recent start, and Genus (Murphy) were clocked from the 600m in 38.8.   Packing Express (Dalley) and Artemis (Cowie) galloped strongly throughout 1000m in 1:3.4 finishing off in 36.6..   Italienne (Chipperfield) and Soldier’s Leap (Macfarlane) cut out 1000m in 1:4.1, sprinting the last 600m in 36.3. 

The Tidy Express (Dalley) strode comfortably from the 1000m in 1:14, coming home in 40.   Beyond All Doubt (Cowie) was timed from the 1200m in 1:20.8 and 39.1 for the 600m.    Long Lashes (Chipperfield) and Future King (Macfarlane) sprinted 600m in 38.2.   And Carbide (German) completed 1000m in 1:7, the concluding 600m in 37.8.
