Santa looks on track for his Everest ascent
SANTA ANA LANE is on track for The Everest and worked nicely to cover 800m in 52.18 and his closing 400m 24.38 last Tuesday morning.
He then took part in the fastest jumpout last Friday with BANDIPUR and OUR
CROWN MISTRESS crossing the line together about a length clear of OSBORNE BULLS and another length and half back to Santa Ana Lane who wasn’t extended at any stage.
The time recorded of 47.83 is a strong indication that this
group of horses are ready to run well when they next step out.
I AM EXCITED has trained on well since her recent firstup run and David Pfieffer has pencilled in Saturday’s How Now Stakes at Caulfield for her next start.
She looked bright and fit galloping solo over 800m last Tuesday morning, covering the journey in 55.36 and her final 400m 24.61.
The daughter of Snitzel boasts an impressive secondup record and looks in great shape leading into next weekend.
Mike Moroney has kept POTEMKIN on the fresh side since his run extremely heavy ground at Warrnambool late last month and he appears to thriving on his current workload. Last Thursday he pulled up well after clocking 1.38.90 for his 1400m assignment and 25.47 for his last 400m.
The son of Testa Rossa heads to Cranbourne tomorrow for his next run and he is capable of improving dramatically on
most recent form.
METEOR LIGHT, also prepared by Moroney, is at peak fitness following recent racing and is holding his condition well.
He was kept up to the mark working over 1400m last Tuesday morning and looked to have plenty in reserve covering
the trip in 1.39.36 and his final 400m 25.55.
The imported son of Clodovil should appreciate the step up to 2080m at Cranbourne tomorrow and is ready to run to his best.

After settling at the tail of the field of six he made ground near inside to win his heat over approximately 800m in the time of 49.82.
With another recent jumpout also under his he is forward enough to run well at Cranbourne tomorrow.
