Trotter Racing January Update
Jan 21, 2014
The December/January period has seen the Trotter Stable horses run very consistently. Frustratingly the last 6 runners have yielded 5 seconds with Cyclone Jess and Shenanigans having very consistent preparations this time in. Here is an up date for some of the Horses in the Stable.
The Big Boy after a couple of preparatory runs over shorter trips hit form with an encouraging 4th at Kilmore prior to Chritmas but then put in his worst performance for the stable on New Years Eve at Echuca. He bounced back with consecutive seconds at Pakenham and Cranbourne. He is hard fit and will be hard to beat when he steps out next.
Cyclone Jess has been a model of consistency this time in. She returned a much more mature mare both mentally and physically. That extra bit of time has been all the difference this time in. After breaking her maiden second up before Christmas she has put together 3 seconds in a row including last Sunday at Cranbourne when beaten by the wide gate. She is much more genuine and is giving her owners a 100% everytime she steps out. Cyclone Jess may have one more run or a short break
Has been on the sidelines since her run back on the 18th December. She has had a niggling hoof issue that needs time to recover. Frustrating for the owners as she had been aimed for the summer time racing and the form around her has proven strong. She is a talented filly that once she has a trouble free preparation will be winning. She heads to the water walker for the next fortnight before heading back hopefully into work.
Patience will hopefully reward the owners of Toyed who have stuck by and given her the time to mature and strengthen. She is unlucky to still be a maiden and the hope is with the extra time and some different type of work this time in we will see her in the winners circle
This strong colt is enjoying January in the paddock after his first preparation. Purchased at the Inglis Classic Winter sale he appears to be an astute buy with his half brother Sante Fe Sun (Haradasun) showing a great deal of promise winning last start in Hong Kong. Only one share remains in what looks to be an exciting prospect.
I am Invincible Gelding
Another inspired purchase at the above mentioned sale given the prices yearlings by this stallion are commanding. Our boy is a great type and out of a city winning mare that has produced 8 winners including the Gai Waterhouse Group winner Lorne Dancer. He has been broken in and had one preparation at the track. I am Invincible is currently the leading first season sire and it is great to have such a nice 2 year old by him to get up and running.
The stable star has returned this time in bigger and stonger than ever before. It has been amazing to see him develop from the nervous wreck mentally and coat hanger type physically over the last two years. He has had his fair share of niggles over time all mainly due to a lack of physical strength and maturity. He trialled impressively at Cranbourne recently for Darren Gauci and will resume in mid February all going well
The Yearling Sale season is upon us and we will be targetting the Inglis Premier and VOBIS Gold sales in the hope of securing a couple yearlings to go along with the 2 Homebreds by Sharkbite.
