Racing heads to Gowran Park today and I only have the one declared to run on what is a very low key card. The first race is a two year old 7f maiden that has been dominated in recent years by the surname O’Brien and there’s every chance that trend may continue today. I can’t stress enough how impressed we are with how the tracks in general are producing lovely, fast,safe ground to race on just now in what you would have to say is a mini heat wave. Credit where credit is due and their investment in proper watering systems is paying dividends. I’d say finding water to use will become their next issue !

I’ve declared YONKERS here having his first start and our first runner for this syndicate of Austrailian based owners. Bought at Saratoga last summer he’s a lovely colt by Medaglio d’Oro and is the first one I’ve trained by this sire. He is ready to start but this will be his first outing on grass and as always I’d expect plenty of improvement from today’s run. You know the drill at this stage, it will be the usual rules, a good education and if he can’t win today make sure he learns enough to win the next day!

Keep It Simple!
