Barrier Trial Preview 3/3/2015
After a couple of quiet weeks on the Barrier Trial circuit we’re back in the swing of it today with sessions at the Gold Coast, Sunshine Coast & Toowoomba.
The biggest numbers by far will go around at the Gold Coast where there are 109 acceptors set down to start. Plenty of 2yo’s engaged with Bruce Hill’s Red Dazzler gelding Redsson creating plenty of interest in Heat 10, he’s only had the one start when a good 2nd to the very smart Wicked Intent back in October. This will be his second trial which should tighten him up nicely for his upcoming return.
At the Sunshine Coast the smart You Did What kicks off a new campaign in Heat 1, trained by John Zielke he was in awesome form last preparation winning 3 of his 6 starts producing big finishing bursts on each occasion. Stuart Kendrick’s talented ‘problem child’ Hazard Bay is engaged to run in Heat 2, he reared & hit his head on the barrier at Doomben on Saturday & was a late scratching, keep in mind he’s the horse who dumped Glen Colless last campaign causing him severe facial injuries resulting in many months out of the saddle. Stuart also has a nice 2yo Patronizing in the final Heat (7).
Plenty of newcomers engaged at Toowoomba however the final Heat (Open) features another Saturday scratching in last city winner Upstart Pride.
