Shaun and Emma Clotworthy are crossing all their fingers and toes that consistent galloper Abu Dhabi (NZ) (Haradasun) can break through for his maiden win at Te Rapa on Wednesday.
The Haradasun gelding has been runner-up in his last five starts and his trainers believe it is his turn in the Beefeater Garden Bar 12/12 (2100m).
“He is a really consistent horse, I really hope he can win this time,” Shaun Clotworthy said.
“Sometimes you don’t want horses breaking out of maidens too quickly because they are still learning their trade, but it would be quite nice if he could pick up a win now.
“He is just as honest as anything, and really deserves a turn. We will be hoping he will go close from that draw (2).”
