Meiner Freccia brilliant first up victory at Hawkesbury

Japanese import Meiner Freccia kept his impressive fresh record alive kicking off his second Australian campaign with a brilliant first up victory at this afternoon Hawkesbury meeting.

Meiner Freccia was allowed to find his feet from the wide gate drifting back to last, settling kindly under the guidance of Brenton Avdulla before circling the field to produce a nice turn of foot down the centre of the track to gather in the leaders scoring an impressive length victory. “It was a very good win. We were always going to need luck from the gate and I knew if we had any he would be fighting out the finish. Brenton kept him out of trouble and summed up the situation perfectly. Meiner Freccia has always shown nice ability and I’m sure he will continue to race his way through the grades he’s certainly Saturday metropolitan grade and with a bit of luck we will have some fun with him along the way” added Kim.

 

Harry Hotspur and Dylan’s Rojo head to Rosehill Gardens

Harry Hotspur and Dylan’s Rojo will square off against one another in the final event on the card, race 8 Hyland Race Colours Hcp over 1400m. Dylan’s Rojo resumes from a nine week let up leading the field out carrying top weight of 60kg’s and has been kept up the mark winning a recent trial over 1200m on his home track recently whilst Harry Hotspur has taken benefit from three trials as he makes his return to the racetrack following a spell. “Both Dylan’s Rojo and Harry Hotspur are very well. Dylan’s Rojo has been plagued by wet tracks prior to his let up and will enjoy racing on the firmer surface whilst Harry Hotspur has done well since his break and won his most recent trial well over 1200m at Wyong. I would have liked to have kept Harry Hotspur and Dylan’s Rojo separate but with not a lot of suitable races on at the moment they will oppose one another on Saturday as they both need the run and all going well I have earmarked a possible trip to Brisbane in the coming weeks for both Harry Hotspur and Dylan’s Rojo” added Kim. Jay Ford has secured the ride aboard Dylan’s Rojo whilst Tye Angland has been booked to ride Harry Hotspur.
