Let’s Start 2018 With A Bang!
Jan 01, 2018
Well MANY REWARDS ended 2017 for us on a high as he romped home to victory at Echuca yesterday. Today we head into the city for the first first meeting of the New Year at Flemington.
Our first runner of 2018 for the team is O’LONERA in Race 3 - the Byron Moore Handicap. Over 2000m, this race has a small but strong field and he will be facing very different conditions today than his last outing win at Pakenham. O’LONERA has been going really well at home but the race is likely to be won by the best tactical ride on the day. Let’s hope that comes from our hoop Beau Mertens.
Our other runner today is FUDGED who runs in the lucky last Race 8 - the Nouvelle Star Handicap. Over a distance of 1400m, it is a step back in trip for the filly who is now 7 runs deep into this current prep. Having forged a strong alliance with Stephanie Thornton, the duo pair up again today. Our only concern is drawing barrier 19 might leave the filly with a tricky task.
Wishing you all a very happy New Year!
