Trackwork Thursday 22 December 2016
Ecuador (High Chaparral/Bak Da Princess) is set to resume on Saturday in the December Handicap. This morning he crusied over 1400m with Steve O'Halloran in the saddle who reported, "It was very strong work. He feels great and is ready to go." The 1400m is far short of his best but its a nice starting point and he'll go from strength to strength this campaign once he gets over a trip.
Invincible Star (I Am Invincible/Romany Flyer) is working a treat and on Thursday morning she cruised over 600m with Steve in the saddle. Picking up over her final 200m in 12 seconds, Steve commented, "She is doing it easily and is coming up very well." The Group 3 winning filly will head to the Wyong trials on 28th December before venturing north to QLD.
Hualalai (Street Cry/Aloha) has come out of his impressive debut trial in terrific order and on Thursday he put in a solid gallop over 600m. The colt is coming to hand beautifully and was Steve's best of the morning after working home over his final 200m in 11.5 seconds. This was the colt's main gallop heading into his debut race on Monday at Randwick over 1000m.
"Cassadee (Redoute's Choice/Avarice) is ready to do," according to apprentice Rachel King who worked the filly over 1200m in preparation for her 1st up run at Randwick on the 2nd of January. She hit the line strongly over her final 200m, running home in 11.3 seconds.
