Shalwa looking to bow out in style

Trainer Tony Gollan might need to hold a farewell party to go with any celebrations if one of his four mares can win the Listed Gai Waterhouse Classic (1350m).

Gollan has accepted with New Zealand-bred mare Shalwa, as well as Twitchy Frank, Solar Star and Amicita in the Ipswich feature.

Shalwa, Twitchy Frank and Solar Star are listed to go under the hammer on the Gold Coast next week.

“At this stage the four mares running on Saturday will be off to the sales next week,” Gollan said.

“Combined with the others who have gone it has put a bit of a hole in the stable.

Gollan said Shalwa would have to overcome a wide barrier on Saturday.

“She is a black-type winner and has been very good since we took blinkers off her earlier this year,” he said.

A daughter of the late O’Reilly, Shalwa has seven wins to her credit and more than A$300,000 in earnings.
