The Kim Waugh stable will make a rare trip to Kembla Grange tomorrow with maiden gallopers Misty Lights and Ezi Pleased. “Both horses are fit and well and have pleased at home in the lead up to their respective races. Unfortunately they have both drawn a touch awkwardly” said Kim.
First Emergency Misty Lights has gained a start after two early scratchings in the first event 2yr old Maiden over 1200m. The Sebring filly worked home well over an unsuitable distance after striking trouble last start and Kim believes the filly will appreciate the extra furlong. Inform apprentice John Kissick will be aboard claiming 1.5kg’s with the pair jumping from barrier 8.
Ezi Pleased steps up to the mile for the first time in his short career when he lines up in race 7. After 3 consistent runs this prep the Excites gelding is rock hard fit and ready to tackle the increased distance. “Ezi Pleased is a big striding galloper whose racing style will be suited by the bigger track” said Kim. Senior jockey Paul Hammersley takes over the reins jumping from gate 9 of 10 starters.
