Taree R2 – Mdn Hcp 1614m

Looking forward to seeing this Kiwi import GENGHIS KHAN go around in this. His only race track appearance was in New Zealand over a mile. He was well back in that maiden to the home bend that day yet made good steady ground toward the end to wind up 5th. That was back in July. Resumes here and has a big weight but is in a winning stable and drawn well. Watch market as he might have a fair bit of ability.


Many years ago in NSW greyhound racing circles, a dog who was bigger than most roared his way into the record books. He won everything and was the Phar Lap of dog racing from the era which started to really shape the sport. His name was CHIEF HAVOC and the equine version, well at least with the same name, races in this. He’s drawn off the track here but he is in a new stable now with Colt Prosser and his recent form in Class 2 races has been sound enough to suggest this should suit a great deal. If he finds cover in or around midfield, he might just go bang late and good odds here. READY’S GIRL is the obvious danger.


There is always a lot to like about a horse who races away and wins a flat race by 8 lengths or more. And the nicely bred THE STYLIST did that at maiden level last start. It was just her 5th start in a race and she led all way over 1300m at Ararat. It was an easy kill as she had previously run 3rd in town on a Saturday at $151. This is harder but Deanne Taylor who trains and owns her looks to have done a wonderful job getting her in perfect shape for this. If she wants to get out and lead again, jockey Jarrod Fry will be aided by the rails draw.
