Hopefully you find a winner over this festive season.

We have had some recent joy when TESTALINA broke her Maiden with a well deserved victory at Taree on Sunday.  She has been a bit of a problem child with some poor raceday behaviour throughout her career.  She again missed the kick by 3 or 4 lengths on Sunday but with the benefit of a gem of a Robert Thompson ride she overcame her early disadvantage to win the race narrowly.  If she mends her raceday manners she looks capable of more race wins.

We also had a couple of near misses in the past week - FREE ON SATURDAY (See Photo) ran a terrific race for his Hancox Racing NO 6 owners at Yarra Valley, on Friday, looking the winner 50m from home only to go down in a bobbing photo finish on the line.  He has developed into the most magnificent looking horse and I am sure he will get the results he deserves very soon.

KISS IN THE DARK is another who ran a very good race recently.  After two runs that we put down to "learning experiences" we added a set of winkers and she ran a super race yesterday at Wagga, leading until the final 80m and finishing a close up 3rd.  She has gone for a spell but looks promising.

UPCOMING RUNNERS (Something for you to follow this coming week)

Friday - MOSSBEAT at Sandown

Saturday - MAGLISSA at Morphetville and HEART OF MANY at the Gold Coast

Sunday - CELEBRAKTI at Mornington

Tuesday - AL HAMZA at Bairnsdale

1st Jan - HEART OF THUNDER at Doomben.

Hoping to see the year out with a bang. Surely we can manage a winner out of this lot!!!!

Have a Merry Christmas and may 2015 bring us all plenty more winners.
