This week we had 3 runners in total, Shtarker and Chippn Away at Rockhampton on Thursday, and Rocksan on Saturday at Eagle Farm.
Shtarker ran in the Capricornia 2yo Classic and ran a gallant race, running on late and looking like he needed further, he will be a 3yo and improve over further distance.
Chipp'n Away was running in the Class 4 Handicap and he won the race, ridden positively by Chris Munce, we thought he was placed to perfection at Rocky as he had run second beaten not far in town 2 starts prior. He has been a good horse for us, costing $2000 and winning over $30,000 so far.
Rocksan on Saturday at Eagle Farm was back to fillies grade after failing in the wet last start, while her odds indicated she was a roughie, we thought she would be ultra competitive. Ridden by Eddie Wilkinson he gave her a gem of a ride, and hit the front only to be run down late by another horse and run 2nd beaten a half head. Maybe the track was a bit too hard and it might have told in the last 50metres or so. Glad that she produced a good result and will be winning shortly we hope.
