Plenty to Look Forward To!
It was a big weekend of runners with two maiden wins and a 2 from 2 winner in Serena Bay.
The two year old's have been stepping out in excellent form of late. Serena Bay (Sebring/Caiguna) is unbeaten and is becoming a very special filly. She is definitely shaping up nicely for the Golden Slipper and based on what we have seen so far, she will prove hard to run down. After training six Golden Slipper winners, I can tell you this filly is doing everything right. She's big and strong and just gets on with the job. She puts herself in the race and knows exactly where the winning post is.
Northwest Passage (So You Think/Danevade) is sired by the grandson of my favourite sire, High Chaparral (now deceased).He ran absolutely beautifully on debut at Hawkesbury, when Rachel King pushed the go button, the acceleration and display was very exciting. I think Northwest Passage may be on his way to the Derby, yes I'm getting a bit ahead of myself but this is exactly the agenda of this horse. He's a big, rangy type of gelding and the way he won on raw ability on debut shows there's plenty of improvement to come both mentally and once the races get over further.
Another talented maiden winner was the beautifully bred, My True Love (Fastnet Rock/Lectrice) who sported the infamous Nick Vass silks past the winning post. She has always shown plenty of ability and it was great to see her win, and win so well on the weekend at Hawkesbury. The options are endless for this filly and I wouldn’t be surprised if we saw her in a very smart race in the future. Stay tuned X
