Trackwork Friday 7 June 2019

It was a busy Friday morning with five groups of horses jumping out on the grass.

One horse that particularly caught our attention, was the Hinchinbrook/Grenada ’16 filly, who showed very nice improvement in her jumpout on the grass this morning. She was a total professional in the barriers before jumping out in first position. She hit the ground running to maintain her position to the turn and jockey Rachel King commented, "She showed great speed from the barriers, and gave me a strong feel to the turn. That was excellent work, she’s a quality filly." Hinchinbrook/Grenada has come up an absolute treat this time in and we couldn't be happier with her jumpout this morning. She is now on track to have a trial in approximately two weeks' time.

Absolute Puzzle (Rubick/Without Exception) had her first jumpout this preparation on the grass and we couldn’t be happier with her effort this morning. The filly was a consummate professional in the barriers before jumping out a head slow in second position. She picked up nicely to lead her stablemates to the turn and jockey Rachel King commented, "She was great this morning, she was relaxed in the barriers and jumped out quickly. She travelled really well to the turn, that was well done." Absolute Puzzle is coming to hand very nicely for us this preparation, and she will only improve with the added fitness and experience over the coming weeks as she edges closer to a trial this time in.

Hairbrush (Shooting To Win/Tapanappa) successfully completed her second jump out this morning. She mustered good speed to share the lead to the turn and jockey Rachel King commented, "She did everything right today, she showed nice speed to the turn and I couldn't fault her work. I was very happy with that." Hairbrush has done nothing but improve each time she steps out on the track this preparation, and we were very pleased with her work this morning. We will fine tune her fitness over the next couple weeks before pencilling her in for her first trial this preparation.

It was a very exciting morning as we also had our first group of yearlings jump out on the grass and Vancouver/Never Forget ‘17 caught everyone’s attention in the process. The colt was a total professional throughout the effort, he loaded well and stood quietly before jumping out quickly tied for first position. He mustered very good speed to lead his stablemates to the turn and senior work rider Steve O'Halloran commented, "He was excellent this morning. He walked right into the barriers confidently and stood quietly. He flew out and got into stride immediately, leading to the turn. He gave me a very good feel, that was very well done." Vancouver/Never Forget  is proving to be a very forward yearling, as his impressive jumpout this morning showed. He is doing everything right at this very early stage and he cops everything on the chin, which is a trademark attribute of many of our most successful horses.
