We’re off to the Coast this week
Updated: Mar 17
Tomorrow (11th March) I’ll be taking two horses across to the West Coast for the Westport and Reefton meetings on the grass.
At the Westport Trotting Club’s meeting on Friday, Kusanova lines up in Race 7 at 5.08pm. The mare’s been going good honest races and we expect that to continue over on the Coast. Regular reinsman Gavin Smith drives. Kusanova is pictured with connnections after her maiden win at Timaru.
Fun in The Dark is a newcomer to the stable who stepped out at the Methven trials last Saturday. From the unruly she tailed the field to the 400 metre mark and hit the line well. On Friday she'll run in Race 8 at 5.36 from an awkward draw. With Ricky May steering we’re looking forward to her first tote outing in the colours. Fun in The Dark has had a win and a placing from five starts at Patterson Park.
All going well both horses will back up at Reefton Trotting Club’s Sunday meeting.
Back at Ripple Creek we’ve been fielding a lot of interest in our recent yearling purchases, and just a few shares remain available in three of our buys. There’s still time to get into the ownership of impressive young colts by Bettors Delight, Sweet Lou and Art Major. Send me a text anytime on 027 635 0414 to discuss and I’ll get right back to you.
We currently have 20 horses in work, of which Majestic Action, Spymaster, Reinimin Patron and 2yo Warhol are all set to race in coming weeks. Good luck to all our owners and everyone following the team.
