Supreme Effort attempts to qualify for the Provincial Championships

Kim Waugh will send a trio of gallopers to Gosford on Thursday, with the promising galloper Supreme Effort leading the way as he stakes his claim for a Provincial Championships start in race 5 whilst Dylan Rocks is out to make it two wins in a row in race 5 and former European gelding lines up in race 4. “All three horses are very well. We have had constant rain most of the morning hopefully it clears and we don’t get any more rain” added Kim.

Talented Shaft gelding Supreme Effort (pictured above) has left it until the final heat of the Provincial Championships held at Gosford on Thursday in attempt to force his way in Provincial Championships held at Randwick on the 11th April. The lightly raced gelding has continued to thrive under Kim’s training with Kim very happy with horse’s condition “Supreme Effort is fit and well a very happy racehorse heading into Thursday’s race. Supreme Effort is racing in good form at the moment and I’d expect him to be very competitive again on Thursday. Fingers crossed he will be joining Oxford Poet on the truck bound for Randwick in ten days’ time” added Kim. Sam Clipperton will again guide Supreme Effort, with the pair jumping from barrier 12 in the field of 17. The 1200m start at Gosford has a nice long run to a sweeping home turn Sam will have time to slot in and gain some cover allowing Supreme Effort to utilise has turn of foot. Supreme Effort enjoys racing at Gosford with a win and a second placing from his only two starts at the track.

Impressive last start maiden victor Dylan Rocks (pictured above) steps up in distance to 2100m for the first time as he looks to make it two wins in as many starts. The Dylan Thomas gelding has continued to please Kim since his last start win over 1500 at Newcastle with the astute lady trainer confident the sharp rise in distance will be suitable for the lightly raced stayer. Dylan Rocks is bred along strong staying lines and with the way he ran through the line at Newcastle indicates that he will handle the rise in distance. “Dylan Rocks is great he is fit and well and has continued to improve with racing. I have no doubt he will again acquit himself well come Thursday” added Kim. Tommy Berry takes over the reins with the pair jumping from barrier 6

Sheniyan takes his place in race 4 XXXX Gold Bm70 over the mile at his fifth start this campaign. Whilst the gelding has won over the longer distances in Europe all his better form since arriving in Australia has been when he’s raced over the mile with Kim electing to freshen him up since his last run 3 weeks ago over 1800m. “Sheniyan is fit and well I have tinkered with his gear and the horse will wear ear muffs for the first time he can be highly strung galloper hopefully the ear muffs do the trick and help him settle. The gelding will appreciate the drop in weight and racing on a track with the sting out of the ground” added Kim. Sam Clipperton reunites with Sheniyan, with the pair jumping from a middle gate in barrier 6.
