Kahma Lass broke through for her first win on Australian soil on Saturday in the Listed Weekend Hussler Stakes (1400m).Last season’s Gr.1 New Zealand 1000 Guineas (1600m) winner proved too strong for her rivals and could now potentially be aimed at the Gr.1 Cantala Stakes (1600m) having ticked the Australian black-type box.“It was great to see her return to winning form,” trainer Jamie Richards said after also winning the Gr.1 Might And Power Stakes with Probabeel who like Kahma Lass ...

Tevere terrific at Te Rapa

Tevere recorded her second win at just her fourth start at Te Rapa on Friday when winning the Dunstan Recovery Mash 1200. Bred and owned by Curraghmore Stud principal Gordon Cunningham, Tevere had displayed above average qualities when storming home to win her Maiden over 1200m in May, clocking the fastest final 600m of the day, and following near four months respite she delivered again. Also aboard for the first win, jockey Michael McNab did a good job of negating an awkward barrier (10) to sne...

Picnic at Caulfield for Annavisto

Talented four-year-old Annavisto (NZ) (Reliable Man) advanced her record to five wins from ten starts, when comfortably taking out the 4CYTE for Living Legends Handicap (1400m) at Caulfield on Saturday. Prepared by Mick Price & Michael Kent Jnr, Annavisto found the lead under John Allen who then controlled the tempo, turning the race into a dash home and ultimately an easy watch for punters that supported the mare into favoritism.   “I thought it was this little party going on out there f...

Maasir makes winning return

Curraghmore graduate Maasir posted a win at Taupo on Friday when resuming in the Pitch Sports Bar & Lucky Lizard (1300m). Although settling last on a comfortable pace and still eight lengths astern at the 600m, Maasir took an inside passage and quickened too strongly for his opponents, with stablemate Aromatic finding plenty after racing outside the leader. It was a cagey ride by talented hoop Ryan Elliot, seizing the initiative to save ground, and one that determined the outcome in the mind of ...

Ambitious spring underway for Rapid Falls

Cambridge trainer Tony Pike left the Te Rapa racecourse on Saturday evening a happy man after his team of four runners produced two wins, including one by Gr.3 Martin Collins New Zealand Cup (3200m) candidate Rapid Falls. Pike was pleased to see Sacred Falls mare Rapid Falls make a winning start to her spring campaign in the Waikato Draught Handicap (1600m) after signing off her previous campaign with a win at Ellerslie. “She (Rapid Falls) is a mare who has really strengthened up ove...

Staying test for Penelope Cruise

Penelope Cruise will run 1000m further than she has before when she contests the NZB Airfreight Road To Jericho (3210m) at New Plymouth on Saturday, but trainer Allan Sharrock believes she is up to the task. The six-year-old daughter of Ocean Park heads into the race off the back of a win and runner-up performance over 2000 and 2100m respectively, giving Sharrock confidence ahead of her first staying assignment. “I think the run at Hawera last week has topped her off nicely and she gives every...

Tofane will make a welcome return to her home track of Flemington on Saturday when she contests the Gr.1 Makybe Diva Stakes (1600m). The daughter of Ocean Park ran third first-up in the Gr.1 Memsie Stakes (1400m) at Caulfield last month, and trainer Michael Moroney believes she will appreciate the roomier track at Flemington. “I thought she struggled a bit around that last corner (at Caulfield),” Moroney told SENTrack. “Just the way the race was run, they started to really sprint around th...

Let’s Elope target for Annavisto

Trainers Mick Price and Micheal Kent Jnr have elected to take a cautious approach with Annavisto (NZ) (Reliable Man x Avisto) with her first-up run at Caulfield on Saturday. The local trainers were weighing up whether to line her up in the Gr.3 Cockram Stakes (1200m), but have elected to take the easier option of a Benchmark 90 1400m assignment first-up on Saturday. The four-year-old mare hardly put a foot wrong last preparation, winning three of her five starts, including the Listed Bendigo Gui...

Timing right for Waller stayer in Cup

Tim Clark believes there is a sense of timing surrounding progressive stayer No Compromise (NZ) (Pins x Baggy Green) ahead of his latest assignment in the Gr.3 Premier’s Cup (2000m) at Kembla Grange.  The former New Zealander has scored a hat-trick of wins in five Australian starts and was given a freshen-up following his latest 2400m victory at Rosehill in July.  Clark, who partners No Compromise for the first time on Saturday, figures the break between runs has been a deliberate pl...
