Extreme times ahead

The Sportsman Midweek - - The Trackwork Winners -

BLUE Di­a­mond Stakes win­ner EXTREME CHOICE is gear­ing up for a Spring Car­ni­val cam­paign and Mick Price trav­elled him to Moonee Val­ley last Tues­day in prepa­ra­tion for his first up run the Group 1 Moir Stakes at the Val­ley at the end of the month.

The three year old son Not a Sin­gle Doubt part­nered his sta­ble­mate LE BONSIR dur­ing their work­out and the pair cov­ered 800m in 53.11 their fi­nal 400m in 24.21.

Extreme Choice looks to be com­ing to hand very well add an ex­cit­ing di­men­sion to an elite group of sprint­ers in the Moir.

Tony McEvoy was an­other trainer to send horses to Moonee Val­ley last Tues­day and he paired up JACK­SON with Satur­day’s im­pres­sive win­ner HEY DOC.

They kept close com­pany dur­ing their 1200m work­out run­ning the jour­ney in 1.24.06 and their last 400m 24.62.

The vic­tory of Hey Doc could prove a pos­i­tive pointer to the prospects Jack­son when he re­sumes in the near fu­ture fol­low­ing an en­cour­ag­ing trial at Tatura re­cently.

SARACINO ap­pears to have set­tled in well to his Flem­ing­ton base and the last start Group 2 win­ner

New Zealand stepped out in a jumpout Fri­day.

The three-year-old son of Per In­canto ap­peared to be trav­el­ling well within him­self win his heat, over about 800m, and record 49.37 for the trip.

Trained in part­ner­ship by Mur­ray Baker and An­drew Fors­man he is on a path to­wards the Caulfield Guineas is likely to have his first Aus­tralian start over 1400m at Flem­ing­ton next Satur­day.

Gai Water­house is as­sem­bling a strong team at her Flem­ing­ton base and MAHATTAN VIXEN is ready to re­sume af­ter a num­ber of im­pres­sive gal­lops in re­cent weeks in ad­di­tion to two jumpouts.

Last Fri­day she raced on the speed to win the quick­est heat of the morn­ing and stop the clock at 48.04 for dis­tance of about 800m.

The daugh­ter of Man­hat­tan Rain looks to have de­vel­oped nicely dur­ing her re­cent break and is sure prove hard to beat when she re­sumes in the next week or so.

MOSSBEAT is a re­cent ad­di­tion to the Hayes and Dabernig train­ing part­ner­ship with a re­cent trial and jumpout un­der her belt she is set to re­sume at Sandown to­mor­row.

Just over a week ago she trav­elled easily to fin­ish about three lengths be­hind sta­ble­mates METAPHOR­I­CAL and SHEIDEL in a jumpout on the course proper over ap­prox­i­mately 800m.

The time for heat of 48.98 com­pared favourably with other heats con­ducted dur­ing the morn­ing and Mossbeat looks in good shape for her first up run.

Extreme Choice is on track for his first-up run in the Moir Stakes
