As the tracks continue to improve so too does the momentum of Go Racing’s spring fortunes.
This week has seen rewarding runs in three countries.
In Sydney, No Return put in a very brave performance over a tricky distance of 1550 metres to win fresh up.
“It was a very tough performance and he fought them off the whole way in the straight to hang on,” says Albert Bosma, Racing Manager.
Leading Sydney trainer Chris Waller is very pleased with him and says he is bigger and better than his last campaign. He will next race on the 21st of October at Canterbury in Sydney and although 1900 metres suits him better he may have another crack at 1550 metres while still fresh.
In Singapore, Chariots of Fire had only his third start and the first where he found the rail. He used this position to lead, kicked on the turn and was only run down on the line to come second in a dramatic finish.
“He clocked a sub one minute ten time which is very impressive for Singapore,” Albert comments “He has always looked good and is a horse we believe can go through the grades and be very successful.”
Back at home, Zanotti had her first start in a month over a mile which is shorter than preferred. Says trainer Andrew Carston, “Her second place was much better than expected. She sat in about fifth place during the race and made up ground all the way up the straight. It was a superb ride from Matt Cameron.” She will be backed up over her more natural distance of 2100 metres this weekend where we hope the momentum continues.
