Te Rapa Past Races
Reigning Singapore champion trainer Mark Walker snared two victories when racing resumed following a three-month Covid-19 interruption on Saturday at Kranji Racecourse in Singapore.
An impressive victory over 900m at the Ellerslie trials last month indicated Sweet Molly Malone was a strong winning chance at the venue on Saturday and so it proved as she dashed away in the home straight to register a comfortable two and a quarter length victory in a maiden 1200m contest.
Talented three-year-old Shoshone was back to her best as she registered a comprehensive performance to win fresh-up over 1200m at Ellerslie on Saturday.
Group Three performer Jakkalbomb will be able to answer the question of whether she can handle a heavy track when she contests the Barfoot & Thompson Body Corporate 1200 at Ellerslie on Saturday.
The last few weeks have put a spring in the step of the team at Riccarton Park.
Stephen Marsh has his bases covered this weekend as the only trainer in the country to have runners at all three galloping meetings.
Weight, it’s the bane of many jockeys’ existence, and late last year it became a bit too much for talented apprentice Hazel Schofer.
It was a true family affair for local trainer John Morell at Te Rapa on Saturday.
Visiting Taranaki trainer Allan Sharrock struck gold with his first runner following the Covid-19 pandemic lockdown when Tellyawhat notched an impressive victory at Te Rapa.
Te Akau trainer Jamie Richards brought up his first century of training wins in New Zealand in his own right after Bak Da Master scored in the first race at Awapuni on Saturday.
The search is on for a new Team Rogerson stable star after the retirement of Ferrando, who will shortly begin a stud career.
Matamata horseman Cody Cole already has a win on the board since the resumption of racing and he is hoping to strike again while the iron is hot.
The training partnership of Keith and Gavin Opie will officially come to an end at the end of the month with Gavin taking over the reins come the new season.
