Dual Command has a jump out

| September 25, 2009

Dual Command set foot on the racetrack for the first time last Wednesday, taking part in an 800m jumpout in Canberra. His trainer Barb Joseph reported that jumped well and did most things right, before tiring over the concluding stages finishing 4th, 4 lengths behind the winner. Given he is a slow mating horse, he [...]

Chief Red Cloud – Ballarat Thursday 1 October

| September 25, 2009

Chief Red Cloud will have his next start at Ballarat on Thursday 1 October. He is No.1 in Race 2 and he will be ridden by Dean Holland. This distance is likely to be too short for him (I think he is more likely to be a 2000m to 2400m horse), but will be interesting [...]

Smiling Hussy finishes 7th on an unsuitable track

| September 23, 2009

Smiling Hussy had her first race back after a spell today, and finished in 7th place of the 16 horse field. She had only a couple behind her as the field came onto the home straight, but she picked up a few places finishing 13 lengths behind the winner. Whilst the margin was not flattering, [...]

Smiling Hussy will be running at Murray Bridge on Wednesday 23 September. She is No 16. in Race 1 – a 1200m 3yo Maiden. David Tootell has been booked to ride and she will start from Barrier 16. Given the track is currently rated as a dead 6, and she has drawn an outside barrier, [...]

Chief Red Cloud trials at Cranbourne

| September 21, 2009

Chief Red Cloud had an 800m trial this morning at Cranbourne. After missing the start by a couple of lengths, he ran on well to finish in 2nd place.  The winner won easily in the quickest time of the morning, and is undefeated so far from 2 starts.  His trainer Greg Eurell said that he [...]

Smiling Hussy fails to get a start

| September 16, 2009

As expected, Smiling Hussy did not get a start today. Hopefully we will be able to find a suitable race for her soon – and a good track would be nice too!

A new addition to our stable…

| September 16, 2009

Back in June, sadly we had to retire one of our horses Choice of Many as he bowed a tendon during a trial at Rosehill. Well, we have just received news from the Syndicators that they have been able to replace this boy with a 2YO filly by Shamardal (USA). Her mother is the Our [...]

Smiling Hussy nominated for Morphettville Parks

| September 14, 2009

Smiling Hussy has been nominated for a 1000m Class 1 race at Morphettville Parks on Wednesday. Currently she is 3rd Emergency for the race, so it is unlikely that she will get a start. With the current track conditions and weather forecasts for the next couple of days, I don’t think the track is likely to [...]
