Martina of Sydney Trial Replay

Here’s the replay of Martina’s trial at Cranbourne today:

Martina of Sydney Trial 21/7/14

Martina trialled yesterday at Cranbourne in the 13th trial over 1000m. She began quickly and led the trial and although she finished a few lengths off the winner I was very happy with her effort and she would have finished closer if she was ridden right out. She was ridden by Gavin Bedggood who is a jumps jockey and weighs a lot more than the other riders in her trial. There was some solid form in her trial and they have a good opinion of the winner Mark’s Matilda who won a maiden at Sale over 1200m and ran 4th at Caulfield over 1200m at her last start and the horse that ran second in the trial ran 3rd at Sale last start over 1000m. Martina pulled up great in the wind and will be right to go to the races,she will be nominated for several races over the next few weeks and she will most likely kick off in a 1400m race and we will be keen to get her up over 1600m to 2000m.

Update: Martina of Sydney

d039dee3-309f-4f64-b436-5deab743b10b

Martina had a 1000m trial on the synthetic at Cranbourne this morning. She was in trial 7 and Brian Higgins rode her and he is wearing a black jacket with black cap with a white edge.  The instructions to Brian were not to give her a hard trial and only let her do as much as she was comfortable with.  We were pleased with her effort as she began very quickly from the barriers and could have led the trial if asked, she travelled third and finished third under a tight hold.  We don’t think the trial field was very strong but we couldn’t have been happier with her, I am sure that if we had given her a solid trial she would have won.
