Aquaoir Race 3 Te Rapa December 19
After a slow start, she got back but impressed with the way she charged home for third running the best closing sectionals in all categories. Bred to win a few races and will, based on that run.
Threadtheneedle Race 4 Te Rapa December 19
The way she found the line late for fourth running the second-fastest last 200 metres shows she is close to a win.
Baby Face Race 6 Te Rapa December 19
She showed excellent improvement off her Ellerslie fresh up run to win this race. Her closing 200 metres of 11.27 was top shelf in the context of the day and over more ground she will use that staying and sprinting ability to gain a few more wins.
Monlula Race 8 Te Rapa December 19
He used up plenty of gas working wide for the first half of the race on a good tempo. So to stick on for third speaks volumes for his ability. Will be at his peak next up so watch out for him.
Sumi Race 1 Awapuni December 19
She just had too much ground to make up down the straight but still ran the best closing sectionals in all categories. Another one from the Sharrock stable who will keep that win strike rate right up there.
Nest Egg Race 3 Awapuni December 19
He only finished fourth but with a few more strides would have won. Ran the best closing sectionals of the race and has a nice stride on him.
