Turnbull Stakes

October 4th, 2014 0 comments

First day back and I jumped straight in on the two-year-old favourite in the first, Mali Rose. The horse fizzled out after looking likely and was later reported to be lame. Not such a good start to the new season! In the fourth Staviva looked the goods but just faded on the line for fifth. None out of two. This is starting to look ugly! The Turnbull looked too hard, so I saved myself for the mares and May’s Dream saved me by just falling into third. One out of three, for a loss on the day. Obviously I’m carrying too much winter condition and need a run or two before I reach peak fitness.
