Durbanville  -  03 July 2013
 Race No.  Distance  Jockey  Time

 Pre Race   :  This looks a very weak race but obviously he is also not the strongest. He has to be able to run a place here or else I personally will be riding him to PE myself! I think he might just surprise us and run very well here.

 Post Race :  An ordinary run from an ordinary horse.

 Kenilworth  -  08 June 2013
 Race No.  Distance  Jockey  Time

 Pre Race   :  We finally crack a draw and he is a reserve runner! It is a big field. Let’s just hope one of the others pull out and we could be in with a shout.

 Post Race :  I thought this was a fairly mediocre run. We can maybe blame 2nd run after a lay off and give him one more run, possibly at Durbanville.

 Kenilworth  -  11 May 2013
 Race No.  Distance  Jockey  Time

 Pre Race   :  He is coming back from a long lay off but is really working well. I think he will run well fresh. Unfortunately his wide draw over the 1400m is not in his favour. We will drop him in and hope he produces a strong finish.

 Post Race :  He ran a smasher. He was totally taken out near the beginning and Glen felt he was lucky not to go down on his knees. He picked himself up, ran on well and was not beaten that far. Glen felt that if things had worked out for him, he could probably have run a place.

 2  1600m Maiden Plate  Sean Cormack  12H40

 Pre Race   :  We have brought him back in trip and I am confident this fellow will run a big race. I am hoping we will earn on Sunday.

 Post Race :  Ran ok but he is definitely looking for a break. He has been on the go a long time and needs to freshen up. There are some suitable races ahead for him.

 Durbanville  -  24 October 2012
 Race No.  Distance  Jockey  Time

 Pre Race   :  The poor draw is against him big time. It is a big ask but let’s see how he goes. Hopefully Karis can get him out quickly and racing but the 14 draw is going to make life very tough, especially on the Durbanville course.

 Post Race :  I couldn’t see the point of chasing him to the front from the lousy draw. We just gave him a nice quiet run at the back and I was pleased with his effort in the straight. He really had no chance from that draw

 9  1800m Maiden Plate  *D Lee (4kg)  17h30

 Pre Race   :  He has had a short break and is back over the 1800m. He is fresh and has a 4kg allowance.

 Post Race :  He was sitting quite far off the pace early on but did run on a little in the straight. Possibly needed the run after his break in the paddock.

 Pre Race   :  Obviously the Galileo bred, number 8 is the one to beat but everyone says he has been wanting this trip, so fingers crossed!

 4  1400m  Bernard Fayd'Herbe  13h40

 Pre Race   :  to be advised

 Post Race :  This was a great effort and we will now find something over further.

 3  1800m  Sherman Brown  13h50

 Pre Race   :  I am taking the jockeys advice and running him over further. Let’s hope this is what he needs.

 Post Race :  Maybe there is some light at the end of the tunnel. I will now find a race for him over further.

 Durbanville  -  04 July 2012
 Race No.  Distance  Jockey  Time

 Pre Race   :  He has a terrible draw to overcome and will need an awful lot of luck in the running. I have put a claiming apprentice on his back as he does seem to run better for the apprentices than for a jockey.

 Post Race :  With his wide draw, he had no option but to drop in. He ran on nicely from the back of the field.

 4  1400m  Richard Fourie  13h55

 Pre Race   :  He is struggling to find his form and I cannot find the reason for this. Maybe the soft ground?

 Post Race :  The jockey says he is looking for further. I am not so sure.

 Kenilworth  -  03 June 2012
 Race No.  Distance  Jockey  Time
 4  1400m  Denise Lee  14h00

 Pre Race   :  This is a weak field and he has the claiming apprentice on. If all goes his way, he must have a chance.

 Post Race :  This was a disappointing run. He had a nice position but ran into trouble at the top of the straight. He lost momentum and just never got going again.

 4  1400m  Brandon Lerena  14h45

 Pre Race   :  Very unlucky last time out. He didn’t get any type of run. Thankfully he has cracked a draw again. Feel he is a big runner here.

 Post Race :  I was disappointed with him. I expected a bit more. I’m sure he will pick up a race soon in a weak field.

 Kenilworth  -  25 April 2012
 Race No.  Distance  Jockey  Time
 4  1400m  Denise Lee  14h40

 Pre Race   :  He is very well. He has the 2.5kg allowance and a good draw and we have sortedout his problems. Hopefully today it will be his turn to win.

 Post Race :  He didn’t have much luck in the running. I feel she had him too far back and paid the price for this when making her run up the straight.

 Durbanville  -  04 April 2012
 Race No.  Distance  Jockey  Time

 Pre Race   : 

 Post Race :  Was good to see him come back to form. He ran well from a bad draw. His poor form was quite plainly a result of his respiratory virus. Hopefully he will win a race soon.
