Embracer (Sebring/Leone Chiara) put in a lovely piece of work this morning over 1000 metres (five furlongs) in preparation for his second start on Thursday at Wyong in the 1100 metre Maiden Handicap. Senior rider Steve O’Halloran was on board for the gallop and commented, “His work this morning was great, he settled nicely for me and worked home strongly. He is ready to go.” Embracer’s effort earned Steve’s ‘Best of the Morning’ call.

Last start winner Wolfe (Novellist/Peace Of World) has come through his run in great order which showed this morning in his gallop over 1200 metres (six furlongs) with regular jockey Adam Hyeronimus in the saddle. The Japanese import got into a lovely rhythm and traveled down the straight nicely to stop the clock at 13.3 seconds for his final furlong. Adam was very pleased with his work and commented, “He was very good, he has come through his run well and I am looking forward to his next start.” Wolfe is on track to make his next appearance in the BM78 Handicap over 2000 metres at Randwick on the 25th of May with plans to head to the Brisbane Cup after that.

Indigenous (Wandjina/Pasar Silbano) has only improved since her debut trial and this morning she caught the attention of jockey Rachel King  when galloping over 600 metres (three furlongs) in company with stable mate Shuhood (I Am Invincible/Shahad). The well matched pair worked head to head down the straight covering their final furlong in 12.2 seconds. Rachel was very happy with her work and said, “She is improving all the time. She has a lot of natural speed and ability.” Indigenous will have another trial in a week to ten days as she edges closer to her first start. Indigenous is part-owned by the American syndicate Eclipse Thoroughbreds. Last time they made a purchase in Australia it was a beautiful Pierro filly, Pinot, who went on to win the VRC Oaks and subsequently was sold to Japan. Shuhood is owned by Emirates Park, one of the great breeding grounds in the Upper Hunter Valley, now operated by Aquis Farm.

In Melbourne, the talented young jumper Social Element (Savabeel/Pare) put in an eye-catching gallop this morning with jockey Stephen Baster in the irons. He caught anyone's imagination when he won impressively at Warnambool last week and we couldn't have been more pleased with him this morning. After the winning post he was still galloping  600 metres later. The son of Savabeel will now head to Sandown to contest either the BM 120 Hurdle over 3400 metres or the Australian Hurdle over 3900 metres on the 26th of May.

Runaway (Manhattan Rain/Catshaan) was well named and this morning he did exactly that. He was full of vigour and enthusiasm for Stephen Baster, who was delighted with his gallop. Runaway now heads to the Listed Andrew Ramsden over 2800 metres on the 25th of May.
