Two in a row for Trinity River

Trinity River continued on her winning way with another masterful front running display by Tommy Berry to make two wins in as many starts over the mile. In what proved to be an astute move by inform trainer, Kim Waugh, the Lonhro mare reacted positively to the removal of blinkers settling beautifully under the guidance of Tommy Berry Trinity River always looked in control leading all the to score a length victory.

“The was another great win. Tommy rated her beautifully controlling the race from the outset, she switched off nicely without the blinkers. We will take her home and find an another race in the coming weeks allowing her to work through the grades” added Kim.

The Kim Waugh team will be well represented at home on Sunday when last start winner Trinity River takes her place in race 5 Star 104.5 La Gioconda Hcp whilst Bao Zheng lines up in the final event on day, race 8 Event Cinemas Class 1.

Trinity River atoned for her luckless run two starts ago with a strong all the way win over the distance at Gosford last start and has continued to please all concern in the lead up to her next assignment on Sunday. “I have been very happy with Trinity River, she has come through her last start win in good order and continues to race well and hold her form. I felt that she raced a touch keen at times during the run last start and I have elected to remove the blinkers on Wednesday in a bit to get her to settle” added Kim.  The mare came to the stable with some solid Melbourne form and has continue to race well, with the stable once again confident that Trinity River will again prove most competitive. Tommy Berry continues his association with Trinity River, with the pair jumping from barrier 4 in race 5 over the mile.

Lightly raced gelding Bao Zheng steps out to the mile for the first time in the final event at Wyong Class 1 following an unlucky sixth on the Beaumont track three weeks ago. The big long striding Star Witness gelding was ultra-impressive when breaking through for his maiden victory 2 starts ago before being desperately unlucky last start when he failed to gain clear running at a crucial stage in the straight with Kim believing that stretching him out to the mile looks a very suitable option at this stage. “Bao Zheng is very well, he has continued to please both on and off the track and has made nice improvement both mentally and physically since his last run and in time he will make a nice miler. We certainly don’t want any more rain” added Kim. Tye Angland rode him to victory two starts ago and reunites with Bao Zheng on Sunday, with the pair jumping from barrier 7 following three early scratchings.

Calabasas and His Majesty heading to Rosehill on Saturday

Calabasas and His Majesty both head to Rosehill on Saturday, taking their places in race 3 St Mary’s RSL Handicap over 1400m whilst impressive first up victor His Majesty lines up in race 6 Racing Mates Handicap over 1200m.

The flashy colt Calabasas resumed from a spell 14 days ago finishing a close up second and has  continued to make nice progression taking natural improvement into his second run this campaign with Kim more than happy with the colts fitness levels as he steps up to a more suitable distance of seven furlongs. “Calabasas is very well, I elected to give him the solitary trial prior to his first up performance and whilst he found the 1000m a touch short, that run has really brought him on and whilst the prospect of a heavy track is not ideal the step up to seven furlongs is suitable. Calabasas is a lovely horse that has always shown nice ability and will make a nice miler in time. Saturday’s race looks to quite a strong race on paper and I’m sure it will give a good indication going forward” added Kim. Calabasas will be ridden by Tim Clark, with the pair jumping from barrier 7

Impressive first up winner His Majesty returns to Rosehill following his strong first up performance over 1100m a fortnight ago with the stable wrapped with his progress in the lead up to Saturday’s race. The well related former European galloper continues to impress both on and off the track and looks to have returned in superior fashion judging his brilliant last to first victory. “His Majesty is great. I could not be happier with him he has done extremely well between runs making nice improvement from last start and once again I’m sure given the right run in transit he will gain be hitting the line strongly despite the rise in weights’ added Kim. Whilst His Majesty has performed well on wet tracks in the past Kim is certainly weary of the current weather and certainly doesn’t want any more rain.  His Majesty will again be ridden by Tim Clark, with the pair jumping from barrier 8.
