October has been a very busy month for the team with the continued improvements to Barree taking shape with construction of more tie up stalls and wash bays. The racing team have come back very well from their spells and many of them had their first jumpout recently at Seymour and are not far off getting to the races. Hooked a recent purchase by Ultra Thoroughbreds enjoyed a week on the farm taking advantage of the water walker and track to freshen up before heading to Flemington to prepare for his win over a mile on Cox Plate Day. Also the two mares Future Plans and Darsawye had foals by Host(colt) and Strategic(filly). See below an up date on some of the team
2 year old gelding by Turffontein is really coming along well. He has developed into a real impressive strong horse. He had the benefit of a nice spell through September/October and has come back to the stables in great order. His sire has had a good run in recent times with Fontiton off the same draft winning the 2 year old race on Cox plate day. Still shares available and a great opportunity to own and race a really outstanding prospect.
Marvellous Choice has come back better than ever she has really thrived up at Kilmore. She won a recent jumpout at Seymour and will have another one before heading to the races. So far the niggling issues that have prevented her showing her best have been absent this time around. The 4 year old daughter of Choisir has the talent, hopefully we will see it this preparation.
Plot The Course had his first jumpout at Seymour recently and ran a nice third over 800m gaining his all important barrier certificate. The 3 year old son of Henrythenavigator will improve greatly off the trial and is expected to be a 1600m plus type. He has plenty of size and strengt,a racetrack debut won't be far away.
I am Bacchus (pictured) won his jumpout recently and has shown very good ability. By boom stallion I am Invincible his stock are well sought after. He is showing all the signs of a very good horse.
Toyed another that looks the best she has ever looked was an impressive trial winner and will resume over the next week or so. Thwarted by wet tracks she will be given her chance on firmer tracks and her form early in her preparation has been her best.
Remount looks ready to win a maiden hopefully next Saturday at Geelong. His last start 4th in a strong maiden will have him cherry ripe to step up to the 1300m. He has done a great job to get to the races and perform well. He will continue to improve with racing and is showing good potential.
The ever consistent Cyclone Jess has been running very well but finding the 0-64 races to tough at the moment. She heads to Ballarat on cup eve and drops back to a 0-58 and expecting her to be in the finish with the drop back in class.
Cyclone Andy is progressing well rehabilitating after knee surgery. He is enjoying the lovely spring grass and looks a treat he will be back in work soon.
New comers Bergerac Rose and Zombie Queen made their debuts and will improve next time out. Bergerac Rose struck a wet track at Traralgon which was eventually called off. She will be better for the experience and will appreciate a firmer track. Zombie Queen was luckless on debut over 1000m and showed that she will be competive next start over1200m-1300m
The stable is looking forward to the next few weeks with a number of runners expected to step out. Good luck to all over the rest of cup week.
