Prince Dylan set to debut at Wyong

28-07-2014

Dylan Thomas 2 year old Prince Dylan will face the starters’ orders for the first time lining up in Carlton Draught Maiden Plate over 1100m on his home track tomorrow afternoon. The first starter has had the benefit of two recent trials during the month of July running on strongly at Wyong finishing a close second over 800m followed up by another nice third at Randwick 10 days ago. “Prince Dylan is a nice young galloper who has pleased me at both trials. He is very well and we are hopefully that he will acquit himself well however it is a little tricky lining up the form in the race with so many first starters” added Kim. The astute lady trainer has the services of Brenton Avdulla who rode Prince Dylan at his most recent trial at Randwick with the pair jumping from a middle gate in 8.

Balloons storms over the top to score at Gosford

25-07-2014

Balloons broke through for a well-deserved maiden victory in the third race at Gosford this afternoon. Ridden patiently from the awkward barrier Brenton Avdulla settled the filly near last and allowing the filly to slowing make ground producing Balloons with a weathering burst down the centre of the track to score a strong win. ‘It was a great win Brenton didn’t panic timing his run to perfection. The way Balloons hit the line you would have to think 7 furlongs to a mile will suit her down the track” said a very pleased Kim.

Little Mary went within a neck of delivering a stable double when she finished second in the first race over the mile. After settling in the second half of the field the Duke Of Marmalade filly fought strongly going down by the barest of margins. “Little Mary went great, she’s a big strong filly who is improving all the time and will be better for today’s run” added Kim.

Prince Of Sofia heading to Kensington Track

Prince Of Sofia steps out for the second time this prep lining up in the final event Tab Rewards Benchmark 85 over 1400m. The flashy imported galloper ( pictured below) has  pleased Kim at home since a fast finishing fourth at Kembla 10 days ago. “Prince Of Sofia is very well, I couldn’t be happier with the gelding. His first up run was very good and he has come on since that run. The 7 furlongs is still short of his best distance and Prince of Sofia will get back but I’d expect him to be hitting the line” said Kim. The Rock Of Gibralter has raced sprinted well second up in the past, having won 1 from two attempts whilst racing in France albeit over a longer distance. Nathan Thomas knows the horse well and has retained the ride with the pair jumping from gate 2.
