10-6-2020 – Van Diamond starts at Riccarton on the 11th of July over 1400m. The Rip Van Winkle gelding is in top condition and Chris Johnson takes the ride. He has drawn barrier 12 so “Magic” Johnson will need to be at his best from the wide gate.
9-6-2020 – Wasp trialed at Te Aroha today and finished strongly over 800m for a fourth placing. Cameron Lammas found himself in the inside running down the main straight which on the day proved to be the worst of the conditions. Her trial was the fastest maiden 800m, so a bright start to her latest campaign.
30-5-2020 – As they say “there is light at the end of the tunnel”.
Racing is set to return, with a possible start date of the 20th of June.
Savvy Racing horses are all back into work and Van Diamond is likely to kick off the campaign at Riccarton, early July. Wasp and The Green Dragon will hit the tracks late July with Pinmedown being set to contest the Hastings carnival in Oct/Nov. Tokorangi is also being set for the 1000 Guineas at Riccarton in November. We also expect to see the exciting Burgundy Colt trial again and start racing in November.
So excited, not long to go………………….
