Snapdancer wins maiden at Ballarat

Congratulations team!!

Monday’s win was very satisfying as this filly has shown ability for a while, but it’s great to get those opinions franked, especially by jockey Linda Meech, who said our girl is a stakes class filly moving forward.

Linda certainly set her alight early from the gates being very positive which I though we maybe a bit vulnerable late, but it was the complete opposite as she was very strong through the line.

She will now most likely step into something stronger in town over further as long as she pulls up well, but 1 thing is for sure, we look to have a talented filly moving forward.

Our Wind Spirit wins back to back

Well that left us with our hearts in our mouths as our boy was a dodgem car earlier in the straight, before getting a gap in the last 200 meters. Its very much a momentum track at Ballarat and the sit spring scenario never suited us today, but he is tracking in the right direction.

Ben rode him well and a little too well as we didn’t think he would end up 3rd on the rails after settling, but he seemed to put himself there and was blocked in for most of the race until the final furlong.

He is still going through his education period and will learn more from every run and this confidence he is getting  there now, which will really set him up once he matures mentally.

Congratulations to the owners, and to trainer Lindsay Smith, and Ben Allen.

Saone wins at Ballarat

Well congratulations and it was super to see her stretch out late to win convincingly, albeit by less than a length. She presented a little fitter today and I am certain the more racing she does the better she will get.

Dean was happy to let  her drift back, but we got snookered in an awkward spot, not at all enjoying the kickback  and clearly was off the bit a long way out chasing, luckily she had the class to overcome adversity! We need to really put this into perspective as he is only just 2 at her 2nd start, beating older more seasoned horses which gives us plenty to think about for the spring going forward.

Lindsey said she will improve even further with more racing and can’t wait to step her up in trip over the spring. She has lots of potential and will only keep developing further so the spring and autumn campaigns are really exciting to see what levels she can reach. 

Olympic Oath wins at Ballarat

Well congratulations and it was super to see him stretch out late to win convincingly when challenged. He presented a little fitter today and I am certain the more racing he does the better he will get.

Ben was happy to sit wide and keep him out of trouble which saw him hold off a late challenge  very strongly. We need to really put this into perspective as he is only just 2 at his 2nd start, beating older more seasoned horses which gives us plenty to think about for the spring going forward.

Kentucky Tornado wins at Bendigo

Well that was fantastic to see today as she really showed us a glimpse of what the future looks like with a convincing win. Although it was only a maiden she was pretty arrogant today as Mick Dee only asked her for a minor effort and she responded well before Mick took hold 100 meters from the post.

Mick said it was a really soft win today as we could of won by 3-4 lengths if we had wanted to, and that gear change with the step up in distance really saw a much better turn of foot.

Mick said she can step up into a 2400 meter race now and hopefully put 2 on end.
