Close But No Cigar

3 June 2019
It's been a character building fortnight for the stable with a myriad of strong performances from our runners which have resulted in multiple top four performances.
The team headed to Goulburn for the 17 May meeting, where CAPPAMORE fell 0.11 lengths short of the winner for second. YOUR WITNESS also came within a whisker, running third 0.24 lengths from the winner FRISKEE ONE.
A trip to Queensland saw WHITE MOSS start in the G1 Kingsford Smith and SALSONIC run in the G3 Lord Mayor's Cup. It was a strong performance from the son of HINCHINBROOK who has a knack for running well in the sunshine state, outperforming the long odds of $51 to run fourth.
Nowra Cup day saw strong runs from TAPAVINO, finishing fourth just over a length from the winner, while CITIZEN'S ARREST showed a continuing affinity for the track finishing third in the Belle of the South over 1200m.
The first of June had the team at Rosehill, with all four runners finishing within three lengths of the winner. SPIRITUAL PURSUIT and NICOCHET were particularly strong in their first up performances, each finishing second in fields of fourteen and indicating good preparations awaiting them.

Let the River Run

It was a sweet maiden victory for RIVER BIRD at Wyong following a string of strong performances since the three year old first hit the track. 
Running third in the Group 3 Widden Stakes as a two year old at just her second start, the filly had been consistent running into the placings at metropolitan level last preparation. 
Stepping back to the provincials for her first start this preparation, the filly proved a class above the opposition as was expected by the market, starting the odds on favourite. 
Jockey Kathy O’Hara kept the filly out of trouble over the 1000m trip, taking her around runners to give the daughter of EPAULETTE a clear run. Kicking clear in the straight RIVER BIRD won by 1.9 lengths in 57.88 seconds. 
Out of the talented galloper AMBER’S CROWN, we hope the homebred for Mr. Rapisarda can continue on from a strong start to her preparation.
