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.
