Trackwork Monday 13 May 2019

Last week we welcomed back one of our stable favorites, the mighty five-year-old gelding Arbeitsam (Snitzel/Workhard). Arbeitsam put in his first piece of work this preparation galloping over 800 metres (four furlongs) at three quarter pace. The gelding got into a lovely rhythm and worked nicely down the straight to stop the clock at 14.2 seconds for his final furlong. The Group 3 winner and Group 1 place-getter has come back in in great form and will be targeted at some Spring races.

Hairbush (Shooting To Win/Tapanappa)  put in a very pleasing gallop this morning with stable mate Hinchinbrook/Grenada over 600 metres (three furlongs). The pair worked beautifully down the straight and finished off their gallop strongly to cover the final furlong in 12.3 seconds. Hairbrush is coming along nicely this preparation and continues to improve with each gallop under her belt.

Take On Manhattan (Manhattan Rain/Le Clercq) worked over 600 metres (3 furlongs) at three quarter pace this morning alongside stable mates Gleeson (Tavistock/Fastnet Rockette)  and  Fast Melody  (Sebring/Sweetest Melody). The well-matched trio worked nicely into the straight and crossed the line head to head stopping the clock at 14.7 seconds for their last furlong. Senior rider Steve O’Halloran was very pleased with Take On Manhattan’s gallop this morning and commented “ The colt cantered off very relaxed this morning and was focused on the job at hand. He set off on his three quarter pace nicely and his action felt good.” The colt worked stylishly with his stable mates and we couldn’t be more pleased with how he is coming along.

Lucand Lad (Squamosa/Lucand Star) caught the attention of apprentice Quayde Krogh this morning when he galloped over 1000 metres (five furlongs). The gelding looked to do his work with ease covering his final furlong in 11.7 seconds. Quayde was impressed with his effort and commented " He is coming to hand beautifully, he is a natural and honest galloper. "

The two-year-old son of Sepoy, Lancer (Sepoy/Romincka), put  a smile on trackwork rider Vanessa Grant this morning as he went through his paces alongside stable mate More Joie (Mora Than Ready/Ma Joie). He is an unsassuming, lovely individual and is  ticking all the boxes this time in. 

The well-matched pair Our Castaway (I Am Invincible/Oceanfast) and Exchange Risk (Smart Missile/Above Perfection) also put in an eye-catching gallop this morning over 600 metres (three furlongs) at three quarter pace.  Our Castaway has really matured with his time out and has come back a lovely individual. He handled his pace work extremely well this morning, as did his partner Exchange Risk.
