Deep ground pref­er­ence

Whanganui Chronicle - - Front Page -

Heavy track spe­cial­ist Zar­tan is get­ting closer to a show of form. The eight-year-old son of Zed, who was un­placed last time out, will fur­ther his prepa­ra­tion in the Plat­inum Homes Hand­i­cap (2100m) at Tren­tham on Satur­day. “He’ll prob­a­bly need an­other run be­fore he’s com­pet­i­tive,” trainer Kylie Lit­tle said. “He’s just wait­ing for the deeper tracks.” The 8-year-old is an ac­com­plished win­ter per­former with eight wins on rain-af­fected ground and also has black type on his record, hav­ing fin­ished run­nerup in the Listed Wan­ganui Cup (2040m).
