Cherry Lane dismantles rivals at Matamata

Like most of the racegoers at Matamata on Saturday, trainer Nick Bishara was concerned about the rain forecast to strike the meeting during the day. What was different however, was that while the majority wanted to get through the day without any significant moisture, Bishara was fervently hoping for the heavens to open to assist his quality mare Cherry Lane (NZ) (Redwood) in her bid to win the open 2000m contest on the card. Bishara got his wish as steady showers saw the track downgraded from a Dead4 to a…

Royal Performer confirmed for rescheduled Captain Cook Stakes

The abandonment of racing at Trentham on Saturday and the subsequent rescheduling of the Gr.1 Captain Cook Stakes (1600m) to Te Rapa this Saturday has played nicely into the hands of trainers Jenny and Bob Vance and their quality galloper Royal Performer (Medicean). The nine-year-old gelding had looked to be working nicely into form with a fast-finishing effort for third behind Demonetization (All Too Hard) in the Gr.3 Eagle Technology Stakes (1600m) at Te Aroha last weekend but had his trainers in a quandary as to where to give him…

Gypsy Goddess continues her winning ways at Doomben

overcame difficulties in the running to post her third consecutive victory at Doomben on Saturday. The three-year-old daughter of Westbury Stud-based stallion Tarzino has proved a revelation for trainer David Vandyke, after she provided no indication of her ability leading into her first start at the Sunshine Coast back in October. Vandyke didn’t know what to think after she had been beaten by every trackwork partner leading into the race as well as finishing last of five in her final trial. After getting back near last in the 16-horse field…
