Pres­i­dent looks THRILLSTER was an­other a win­ning Choice

The Sportsman Midweek - - Trackwork - ALAN GOLLOGLY

THE Beau­mont track hosted a mam­moth set of bar­rier tri­als last Fri­day and to­mor­row’s of­fi­cial three-year- olds cel­e­brated their birth­day a tad early with some awe­some dis­plays. PRES­I­DENT’S CHOICE (G. Red­oute’s Choice x Shi­habi) cre­ated an im­pres­sion when cruis­ing away to dom­i­nate his trial and his ac­cel­er­a­tion at the 200m was quite breath­tak­ing.

Owned by Aquis Farm and pre­pared at Scone by Brett Ca­vanough, this horse should de­but a win­ner.

The fol­low­ing two heats went to the Paul Perry yard cour­tesy of AKEED (G. Akeed Mofeed x Video Star) and

QUICK NICK (C. Choisir x Pure In­tent).

The un­raced Akeed was men­tioned in this col­umn dur­ing March/April when he won two tri­als while Quick Nick had a few starts dur­ing the Au­tumn for third in a maiden at New­cas­tle.

But sec­ond that event was El Do­rado Dream­ing who at her very next start won the Group 1 Sires Pro­duce at Rand­wick.

Now to the fil­lies and Lees Rac­ing got ball rolling with a run­ning Quinella in con­sec­u­tive heats. EVALINA ( I am in­vin­ci­ble x Tah­nee Topaz) had a wide mar­gin over sta­ble­mate ITZ LILY (Snitzel x Em­press Lily) but the for­mer had race ex­pe­ri­ence with a de­but plac­ing at New­cas­tle in mid-April.

Ten min­utes later RAAY OF TIME (Time Thief x Hill­dale) had a length to spare from I’M KATE (Sav­abeel Shan­dream) and I am tip­ping the lat­ter could be well above av­er­age.

It does help when you carry the lucky Wan­less tar­tan colours.

The An­thony and Ed­ward Cum­mings sta­ble were sur­prise vis­i­tors their Can­ter­bury placed Zous­tar filly MIZZY had a nar­row vic­tory un­der Aaron Bul­lock. How­ever the third placed GEM DEALER ( Dun­deel x An­niver­sary Jewel) should have bolted in.

Fifty me­tres past the post she had a clear win­ning mar­gin when the gaps opened.

The fi­nal 800m heat for the girls was a pro­ces­sion SASSY CHARLIE which was in stark con­trast to her race day ef­forts on provin­cial tracks of late.

Plau­dits to run­ner up and debu­tant THINK FREE (So You Think x Gratis) who will make the grade for sure and cer­tain.

Group 1 win­ners to per­form at the tri­als were PRIZED ICON who won his 1000m work­out while LE RO­MAIN was just out for a can­ter when sec­ond to VEN­TURE CAP­I­TAL in an 800m di­vi­sion.

By the way, Ven­ture Cap­i­tal should be a horse to un­load on in a Coun­try 900/1000m Class 2 dur­ing Au­gust.

The “Mar­gin of the Ses­sion Award” was won by CUBAN SIZ­ZLE, an ex Rand­wick trained filly who has moved north to Kris Less.

The daugh­ter of Te­ofilo had al­most five pan­els to spare from the most in­ter­est­ing run­ner of morn­ing MILSEAIN who, at her pre­vi­ous race­track out­ing, was third in the Group 1 NZ Oaks.

Milseain never off the bri­dle and this good look­ing daugh­ter of Tav­i­s­tock will make her pres­ence felt in any mares black-type race she con­tests in the Spring.


There were two sep­a­rate course proper gal­lops on Satur­day morn­ing and al­though not out to run time both horses looked in crack­ing or­der – GRAFF and MISS FABULASS are ex­cit­ing prospects.

Also note­wor­thy per­for­mances were handed in on the Beau­mont by HEREDERO, STONE, WEIGELA and KULNURA.

They hold en­tries at Thurs­day’s Coffs Har­bour Cup meet­ing.

Graff looked in good or­der as he gal­loped at New­cas­tle last week.
