I Wish I Win shows Group 1 quality in Testa Rossa Stakes victory

I Wish I Win (NZ) ridden by Luke Nolen wins the Testa Rossa Stakes. (Photo by Scott Barbour/Racing Photos) I Wish I Win has given his rivals a start and then given them a beating in the Listed Testa Rossa Stakes. The Peter Moody-trained gelding looked to be held up halfway down the straight and we all thought he was going to end up in one of those horror watches for punters. However, Luke Nolen found the gap and punched this very smart gelding through to win ultra-impressively over Ayrton…

(Photo by Pat Scala/Racing Photos) Alligator Blood has won an Underwood Stakes that is set to shake up the Cox Plate markets with both of the two market fancies, I’m Thunderstruck and Zaaki finishing third and fourth, respectively. Tim Clark took Alligator Blood to the lead with Zaaki eventually sitting on his girth as the six horse field ran in three pairs for the majority of the 1800m event.

Waltz On By grips on to claim Jim Moloney Stakes

Waltz On By ridden by Luke Nolen returns to the mounting yard after winning the Jim Moloney Stakes. (Photo by Pat Scala/Racing Photos) Waltz on By has hung on by the slimmest of margins to take out the Jim Moloney Stakes as the race favourite at $3.60 at Sandown. The Peter Moody-trained three-year-old filly jumped perfectly and found herself outside the leader as there was no pace in the race at all. Therefore, the race was set up for a sprint home to finish line and that is exactly what…

Group Three target for Cole’s new addition

The Steven Cole-trained New Arrangement (New Approach) provided his connections with a quick return on investment when defeating a strong line-up in the Tote N Poke Sports Bar (1400m) at Ruakaka on Saturday. The seven-year-old gelding was having his first start for the Byerley Park trainer, having previously raced for Chris Waller, for whom he had notched a pair of wins at Randwick. New Arrangement began his career in the UK where he was a multiple winner for James Tate. A consistent Sydney performer for Waller, New Arrangement was sold…

2000 Guineas pipe-dream alive and well for Denby Road

Three-year-old gelding Denby Road (NZ) (Shamexpress) is yet another example to never judge a book by its cover. Prepared by Shelley Hale, the giant son of Shamexpress was not expected to be seen on raceday as a spring three-year-old. But natural ability has taken then big-framed galloper a long way. On the back of two trial victories, the most recent at Tauranga in emphatic fashion, Denby Road was able to repeat the dose on debut at the Bay Of Plenty course, cruising to victory in the Fresh Market, Gate Pa…

Sacred Satono presents credentials for higher honours

Sacred Satono gets the better of Desert Lightning to win comfortably at Ruakaka. Photo credit: Trish Dunell Promising galloper Sacred Satono remains unbeaten in two starts as a three-year-old after putting away his rivals in emphatic fashion at Ruakaka. The Bruce Wallace and Grant Cooksley-trained son of Satono Aladdin, who was stakes placed during his two-year-old campaign, kicked off his spring preparation with an impressive victory over 970m on the Cambridge synthetic last month. That performance saw him well-supported late in betting to start a +170 favourite for the Tree…
