Flemington Turnbull Stakes

October 4th, 2015 0 comments

Horsewatchers have a serious advantage in the early two-year-old races and so it proved with Kinetic Design, clearly the most relaxed horse in the Maribyrnong Trial Stakes. The horse was last at the 400 but powered home to grab second at $4.20 for the place on TAB fixed odds. It’s nice to get a good start to the carnival!

But then a loser in the mares with Madam Gangster although I got something back on Lord Aspen in the last. Three bets is quite a lot when I’m easing myself into the spring and just getting my eye in!

In the main race the Cup winner Protectionist was taped up on all fours and was unsettled and pawing in his stall. He ran an even race without ever threatening.
