Validate packs too many punches at Gosford

Ultra- consistent mare Validate added to her already impressive second up stats with a strong victory in race 7 Schwepps Australia Class 2 Handicap over 1100m at Gosford this afternoon. The plan quickly went out the window after Validate settled three deep without over from the tricky gate however with form jockey Tim Clark aboard he allowed the mare to roll along always travelling well within herself before pouncing on the leaders and powering away for a very strong win. “Validate was great. That was a very impressive performance after sitting wide the trip, she certainly relished returning back to the 1100m and I thought the mare showed great tenacity over the concluding stages forging clear for a relatively easy 2 and half-length victory. We will take her home and find another suitable race in the coming weeks” added Kim

Mo The Great steps out at Newcastle

Mo The Great steps out for his second lifetime start in the opening event Strathayr 3 year-old maiden over 1400m at Newcastle on Saturday.

The Uncle Mo gelding has pleased Kim and her team following his first up performance over an unsuitable distance of 1100m on the tight turning Gosford track two weeks ago. “Mo The Great is very well he’s an inexperience gelding who is still learning his trade and whilst he has certainly taken benefit from his first run and I have no doubt that he will continue to take improvement with the race experience, stepping up in distance to the seven furlongs will also be beneficial to Mo The Great’s chances on Saturday” added Kim. Andrew Gibbons has secured the ride aboard Mo The Great, with the pair jumping from barrier 2.

Validate heading to Gosford

Consistent race mare Validate heads to Gosford on Thursday taking her place in race 7 Schwepps Australia Class 2 Handicap over 1100m.The Duporth mare resumed from a spell last start with a credible third placing over 1200m at the track a fortnight ago and has continued to make nice progression and naturally stripping fitter from her first up assignment heading into Thursday’s event with the stable confident that Validate is more than capable of another strong showing. “Validate is really well, I couldn’t be happier with her leading into Thursday’s run. She is a mare that is really far away in her races and does race extremely well second up. Validate will need to overcome a tricky gate but we are hopeful that she will be able to gain some over in the run and is more than capable of hitting the line strongly over the concluding stages” added Kim. Tim Clark continues his association with Validate, with the pair jumping from barrier 9 in the seventh race on the card at Gosford on Thursday
