Saturday VOBIS race day

Apr 19, 2018

Saturday marks the VOBIS race day at Caulfield, this is a race day that we specifically target each year if we can, with suitable horses. This Saturday we head there with Miss Vixen who backs up after a slashing win at Caulfield in her last start. Nature Strip and a number of others in this race are going to be the testing material, however she is in great form and looks amazing. Hopefully she gets the same sort of run that she did last time and can finish powerfully at the end of this race. If she can do that then we can look for other options for her.

Fudged is our little stable favourite and has been a great little money earner for her owners, after a cheap purchase at the VOBIS Gold sale a couple of years ago - she runs in the Mares Distaff race. Whilst French Emotion looks very difficult to beat in this race, I think Fudged has come back looking really well and her last trial leading into this was excellent and with luck in running and the right sort of run she can run a cheeky race at big odds.

We then get to the two year old VOBIS Sires race which everyone is always excited about having the opportunity to race in. This year we have our first ever Ladies group racing in the Tiffany silks, and gentlemen if she should win, you should be aware that I have reliably been told you will need to be buying your wives presents in those little boxes. Our runner in this race, Realign is a Reward For Effort filly that we bred at the farm, she is related to Smart Dart and Bowhunter - horses that we raced and had a lot of success with over the years.

She is a strong well- made two year old. It is difficult with any two year olds, especially in big fields with big prizemoney when lots of things can happen, to predict how they are going to go. She has trialled really well and has impressed us with her work since the trial so if she gets the right run in transit she could be another one with a cheeky hope. Most of all I am excited for the Ladies group to be having their opportunity to have their first ever runner in this race on Saturday, hopefully she can do well and the ladies can enjoy their day out.
