The first major two-year-old races are held in Sydney in September, before the likes of the Maribyrnong Plate and the Inglis races kick off in Melbourne. A precocious yearling has to be well and truly in work by now as to be ready for a potential race in October. There are still shares in this filly available, and from everything we have seen she is the type of filly that does everything very easily. It is these youngsters that are ‘top of the class’ and are the ones that maybe, with a bit of luck we nominate for black type races in the future.
Things certainly don’t stop over winter – in fact it is during these months that we can get our spring horses perfect, as well as our horses that enjoy wet tracks into the winner’s circle. Here’ hoping!
