Impregnable Finds Nice City Target
Sep 01, 2017
Tough Ontrack sprinter Impregnable heads back to city racing when he contests the opening race at Doomben tomorrow.
Impregnable won his first three races in provincial NSW after moving from Caufield to Toby Edmonds' Gold Coast stables. He has had two Doomben races since then for a brave fourth behind talented galloper Havasay and a third over 1000 metres a fortnight ago.
"He was very strong late the other week and probably needed to be a couple of lengths closer to the speed to have had a winning chance.
"We have decided to stretch him out to 1200 metres tomorrow as rider Robbie Fradd felt he was racing like a horse who would appreciate the extra 200 metres.
"It's a competitive field, but he has drawn well and always puts in so this represents a good opportunity to notch a city win," said Ontrack Managing Director Grant Morgan.
Trainer Toby Edmonds reports Impregnable has come through his recent racing in great order and is confident of another good run at Doomben.
"He is a no fuss horse who just rolls his sleeves up and does what you ask him to do, be it race day or trackwork and he's done a fantastic job in his first preparation for our stable.
"To look at him you wouldn't guess he's having his sixth run since travelling north from Victoria, so we are expecting another good run from a favourable draw.
"His last start suggested he was looking for the 1200 metres of tomorrow's race so he should turn in another good run," said Toby Edmonds.
