New Name for Blackfriars 2yo..

Dec 28, 2011

The new racing name given to our 2yo gelding by Blackfriars from Belle de Plume is "Winning Ticket"!

Congratulations go to part owner Derek Pigg (who lives in Singapore) for coming up with the "winning" name!

The horse is in work right now with Chris Waller at Rosehill and the latest report to come out of the stable (as of Wednesday morning) is as follows:

"He is a bit of a handful, the first few days he was good but he does have a few tricks up his sleeve and he was rearing up going onto the track one day but we have managed to get him out of that habit quickly. Basically he is just a very new horse and he doesn't know much at all considering the work he has done. We will endeavor to step his work load up a little as that will normally sort them out. Over the past week has had two three quarter pace gallops and Saturday morning will be basically the same and then we will start breezing him up over the last 200m of his work and as I say that will get him in order and I am sure he will be easier to work with after this"..
