Trackwork Confidential: Brisbane
THE Gold Coast Bulletin’s Brad Davidson pinpoints some crucial things you need to know from around the tracks.
1. Group 1 placegetter Teronado passed the first major test in his comeback from a career-threatening injury when he got around safely in a trial at the Gold Coast on Tuesday morning.
The rising five-year-old, who finished third in the Rosehill Guineas last year, was snagged back to last in his trial and wasn’t asked for a great deal on the wet track before finishing near the tail.
Teronado hasn’t raced since his tendon was stripped when he was galloped on in the George Main Stakes in Sydney last September.
2. Tony Gollan needs just one win to equal Bruce McLachlan’s Queensland record of 78 metro winners in a season (1987-88). He has several top hopes at Doomben on Wednesday, including Max It Out, Frilly Curtain, Heart Of A Warrior and Jackson Bay.
3. Which former Queensland horse sold to Hong Kong is now back in the Sunshine State? Watch this space.
4. Former Melbourne trainer Rick Hore-Lacy has moved to the Gold Coast to live and is already enjoying the warmer climate. He won’t train in Queensland but wants to consult prospective owners at yearling sales.
