Three Stakes Runners For Go Racing

We will have three runners in stakes races at Trentham this Saturday the 19th of January. The first of our runners, Charlestown, races in The Group 2 Wakefield Challenge Stakes for two-year-olds over 1200 metres. He has drawn barrier 1 and is professional so should be able to make use of the barrier draw. He galloped well on Tuesday and is coming off the back of a decisive win at Woodville on the 5th of January. Robbie Hannam rides him.

Our second runner is Lucky Country in The Group 3 Wellington Stakes over 1600 metres for three-year-olds. She was 7th in The Group 1, One Thousand Guineas when making a lot of ground off a moderate pace. She had a freshen up and then raced at Rotorua on the 7th of January in a Rating 75 1400 metres, where she was last off a slow pace, looped the widest of all runners and finished strongly for 2nd. She has come through that race well and the 1600 metres second up suits. She has the outside barrier again of 13, so has been given no favours here. Jason Waddell rides and she is quality filly that should suit Trentham.

Our third stakes runner is Savour The Moment in The Listed Anniversary Handicap over 1600 metres. He was an unlucky 7th in The Coupland’s Mile when coming from 2nd last at the 400 metres to storm home and be beaten less than two lengths. He had a brief freshen up and returned to Waikato to win a Rating 85 mile carrying 59 kilos, in 1.34.93, a very game performance.

He has barrier 1 on Saturday and drops to 55 kilos, which will be a big assist. Jason Waddell rides.
