||**LADY MONTOYA and BULLETSON continue winning run. **
CURRENT NEWS – DECEMBER 2017/JANUARY 2018
SPONSORED BY PYRMONT CELLARS and THE SYDNEY WINE CENTRE
LADY MONTOYA followed up her good win, at Newcastle, with another good effort, winning at Scone, over 2200m, on the 15th Dec. Back in distance, and up in grade is often a disadvantage, but Lady Montoya dug in for the fight and prevailed by a short margin, on the line. Jockey Robert Thompson said "always going to win and fought strongly to the line". Next up was back at Newcastle 8 days later, but did not fire so we sent her for a break. Will come back into work mid February. Very good preparation with 6 starts for 2 wins, 1 third, 2 fourths and 1 fifth.
BULLETSON made his debut at Wyong, on Sunday, 21st January, and blew them away. Following 2 trials, one at Warwick Farm, the other at Rosehill, where his barrier manners were less than perfect, slowly away in both, before hitting the line strongly to finish 2nd both times. On debut over 1300m, he once again was poorly away, missing the kick by 3 - 4 lengths, settling down last, in the field of 9. Last at the 800m, last at the 400m, and last turning for home, in the short Wyong straight, with 9 in front of him and around 10 lengths to make up. Jockey, Chad Lever, angled him the centre of the track, got on the back of the favourite, and gave him a couple of persuaders. Taking time to balance up, he stormed home over the last 100m, to win going away by over a length and under a hold. Will go next to either Newcastle, Saturday 3rd Feb, or Kembla Grange Tuesday, 6th Feb, both over 1600m.
LADY EVELYN following her unlucky Canterbury run, went to Warwick Farm, 6th Dec, back in distance to 1300m. Striking a bog track , which she doesn't handle, saw her run 6th but pulled up feeling the effects of the run and we sent her for a break. Due back in work early Feb.
FOXY QUEEN trialled well at Rosehill, before going to her first start this preparation, at Orange, 30th Dec. Drawing poorly, saw her used up early, sitting outside leader, kicked clear but was bloused on the post to finish 2nd. A heavy track at Nowra, next start, saw her run poorly not handling the conditions. Bathurst, on Monday 21st Jan saw her again draw poorly, and with no luck in running, was posted 3 deep the trip. Fought strongly to the line to finish 3rd. Looking to go to Cessnock on Monday, 5th Feb for her next start.
RENA'S LAD has had 2 runs back this preparation, putting in 2 solid efforts. First up, at Moree, found the 1200m too short, running home well to run 5th. Second up, race day rain at Scone, turned the track into the soft area, which is not his preferred footing. Tried hard to the line, to run 4th. Hoping for better track, at Tamworth Thursday, 25th Jan, over 1400m.
