Dylan’s Rojo heading to Canterbury Wednesday

Dylan’s Rojo heads to Wednesday’s Canterbury meeting in good form following his solid second over the course and distance a fortnight ago. The tough front running galloper has continued to please Kim and naturally strips fitter for his second run this prep “Dylan’s Rojo is very well, unfortunately he’s drawn shocking in gate 14 which isn’t ideal and will most likely go forward from that gate’ added Kim. The Dylan Thomas gelding enjoys racing around the tight Canterbury circuit and is always competitive as his record suggests having placed in all three runs at the track, Dylan’s Rojo is rarely far away and with any luck in running the stable is confident Dylan’s Rojo will be competitive. Kim has booked inform jockey Blake Shinn to guide Dylan’s Rojo in race 6 Schweppes Handicap over 1250m

Sheniyan breaks his duck on Australian soil

Former European galloper Sheniyan broke through for his first victory on Australian soil with a tough grinding win in Cerno Class 2 Handicap over the mile at Hawkesbury this afternoon. The Sadler’s Wells gelding headed to Hawkesbury with his foot on the till following solid provincial form over the mile outstaying his rivals scoring by a long neck. “It was a very tough effort, he was ridden a treat by Brenton Avdulla producing Sheniyan with a well-timed run. The gelding has been racing well of late and it was good to see him break through today. We will let him get over today’s run before deciding his next start” added Kim. Congratulations to the connections of Sheniyan!

Two bound for Newcastle Saturday

Kim Waugh racing will saddle up Monhro Rock and Hetty Heights at the Saturday’s provincial meeting held at Newcastle. Monhro Rock makes his race day debut when takes his place in the opening event Hunter Storm Relief Maiden Handicap for 3 year olds over 1200m. The Shimonhro gelding has had the benefit of two recent trials in readiness to his first race start “I have been happy with Monhro Rock’s progress, he’s still learning and will be better for the race-day experience. The race is a little tricky to line up with a number of first starters” added Kim. Nathan Thomas knows Monhro Rock well having ridden the gelding in all three trials, with the pair jumping from barrier 3 in the small field of 8.

Lightly raced Hetty Heights (pic above) will be out to atone for her luckless run Scone last Friday after the filly got a long way out of her ground to hit the line hard over the concluding stages when finishing 7th over 1100m. The Written Tycoon filly was ultra-impressive to score on debut at Hawkesbury with the stable confident Hetty Heights will reproduce a similar performance to her first up maiden victory. “Hetty Heights is great, she has done very well during the week. Saturday’s race looks suitable, the extra distance looks ideal and with any luck in running the filly will be very competitive” added Kim.
