Gai Waterhouse & Adrian Bott Racing

FRIDAY 15 MARCH 2019 - Kembla

Rail: True

DIAMOND STAR HALO (Race 4, 3:05pm, 2400 metres, No. 10, jockey Tim Clark, 54.5kg)

Diamond Star Halo (High Chaparral/Justa Babe) four-year old bay mare. Diamond Star Halo has come through her most recent run in exceptional order, she has been bouncing around on the track this week and heads to this race looking very well. She is fitter for the two runs so we expect to see her improve as she is carrying little weight and she has drawn ideally in barrier 4. The mare should be up to this class and she is over a suitable distance so we expect to see her improve on her last two runs significantly. Each way chance.

SISTER SLEDGE (Race 7, 4:55pm, 1600 metres, No. 12, jockey Glyn Schofield, 54kg)

Sister Sledge (Uncle Mo/Unblemished) three-year old bay filly. We know Sister Sledge has the class to win this race and add additional Black Type to her page. She is fitter for her first two runs, which will aid her improvement as she steps up in distance and class here. Although she has drawn out wide in barrier 15, there isn't much speed on in the race so we expect to see her back in the Winner's Circle come race day. Winning chance.

SYDNEY BLUE (Race 8, 5:35pm, 1600 metres, No. 9, jockey Adam Hyeronimus, 58.5kg)

Sydney Blue (Sebring/Dane Belltar) three-year old grey colt. Sydney Blue is ready and raring to get back to the races after two solid trials this time in. The colt has trained beautifully leading into this run, although we know that he will improve with additional fitness and distance later on this preparation. This is the perfect starting place for Sydney Blue as he has won over this track before and we expect to see him right there in the finish come race day. Each way chance.

AUTUMN (Race 8, 5:35pm, 1600 metres, No. 14, jockey Tim Clark, 56.5kg)

Autumn (Medaglia D’Oro/Spring Venture)  three-year old bay filly. Autumn heads to this affair a very fit filly after three solid runs this preparation. She has trained on beautifully following her last race and the added fitness will certainly aid her improvement here. The filly certainly has the class to win this race, she has good tactical speed and we expect to see her prove very competitive come race day. Each way chance.

 

SATURDAY 16 MARCH 2019 – Rosehill

Rail: True

FARETTI (Race 4, 2:55pm, 1200 metres, No. 8, jockey Tim Clark, 55.5kg)

Faretti (I Am Invincible/Tai Tai Tess) two-year old bay colt. Faretti is one of the most talented horses in our stable and he has only improved with the raceday experience and fitness under his belt. The colt has done a treat following his last run and the trial has kept his fitness ticking over. He is primed for a good run having drawn ideally in barrier 1, the step up in distance will suit and we hope to see him in the Winner's Circle come race day. Winning chance.

ALASSIO (Race 7, 4:50pm, 1500 metres, No. 6, jockey Tim Clark, 55.5kg)

Alassio (Foxwedge/Cinque) five-year old bay mare. We are absolutely thrilled with Alassio heading into this Group 1 assignment. The mare has answered every question this preparation and she certainly warrants a run here after a Group 2 and Group 3 win from her last two starts. She is one of the fittest horses in our stable, we have kept her fresh leading into this run and we expect to see her right there in the finish come race day. Each way chance.

SONDELON (Race 9, 6:10pm, 1900 metres, No. 4, jockey Adam Hyeronimus, 59kg)

Sondelon (Lonhro/Trisara) four-year old bay gelding. Sondelon has come through his win in superb order and we couldn't be happier with him heading into this affair. With three solid runs under his belt, the gelding is ready to step up to the 1900 metres on Saturday. The race has a bit of speed on but Sondelon has drawn well in barrier 7 so we expect to see him dictate the terms of the race from the front and not look back. Winning chance.

 

SATURDAY 16 MARCH 2019 – Gosford

Rail: True

GAYSON (Race 1, 1:24pm, 2100 metres, No. 8, jockey Winona Costin, 55kg)

Gayson (Savabeel/In The Mood) three-year old brown gelding. Gayson did a wonderful job placing in metropolitan grade last time out. The step up in distance and drop back in grade will suit him beautifully as he is a very fit horse carrying little weight. We have kept the gelding fresh in between runs and we very much look forward to seeing him start on Saturday. Winning chance.

SACRAMENTO (Race 5, 3:54pm, 1100 metres, No. 5, jockey Grant Buckley, 57kg)

Sacramento (Pierro/Alzora) two-year old bay or brown gelding. Sacramento has come to hand very nicely for us this preparation. He heads to this affair following a second much improved trial, he has drawn to do very little work from barrier three and the 1100 metres will suit first up. The colt is ready and raring to get to his debut on Saturday and although he will improve over much further, we very much look forward to seeing him right there in the finish. Each way chance.

APICIUS (Race 5, 3:54pm, 1100 metres, No. 15, jockey James Innes Junior, 55kg)

Apicius (Redoute’s Choice/Vanilla Princess) two-year old bay filly. Apicius has done a wonderful job this preparation and she has trained on beautifully following her two good trials. She is a big, strong filly who will certainly get over further this preparation, but the 1100m first up will suit her nicely. We look forward to seeing this lovely filly fighting out the finish on Saturday. Each way chance.

 

SUNDAY 17 MARCH 2019 – Bathurst

Rail: True

CHARGED FLAME (Race 2, 1:25pm, 1100 metres, No. 7, jockey Winona Costin, 57.5kg)

Charged Flame (Charge Forward/Femme Liberte) four-year old bay mare. Charged Flame is ready and raring to head back to the races on Sunday. She has done a very good job placing in both of her trials this preparation, and the grade and distance will suit her first up. We look forward to getting this mare back to the races on Sunday and she should prove tough to beat. Winning chance.

ADAGIRL (Race 3, 2:00pm, 1400 metres, No. 10, jockey Winona Costin, 56.5kg)

Adagirl (Lonhro/Adaline) three-year old brown or black filly. Adagirl is primed to break her maiden on Sunday as she returns to the 1400 metres. The filly is as fit as a fiddle and we are pleased with the improvement she showed when returning to provincial grade last time out. We know Adagirl has the class to win this race so we look forward to seeing her in the Winner's Circle. Winning chance.

CHOCOLATIER (Race 7, 4:30pm, 1800 metres, No. 5, jockey James Innes Junior, 55.5kg)

Chocolatier (Redoute’s Choice/La Praline) four-year old bay gelding. Chocolatier has done an exceptional job this preparation and he rates at the top of this field following a strong third place finish over this distance in metro grade last time out. The gelding has drawn ideally in barrier two and there doesn't look to be a lot of speed on so we expect to see him prove very hard to run down on Sunday. Winning chance.
