FORTUNA 3yo Filly, KAYLEEN, starts Saturday 5th Jan at Greymouth

3yo Filly, KAYLEEN, narrowly defeated at her last start at Motukarara on 2nd November makes her resumption after a spell this coming Saturday in a Maiden event over 1100 metres at Greymouth. Desperately unlucky at her last start, being severely checked by the eventual winner, Sir Singo, in the run home, KAYLEEN ( Towkay-Indomitable), has developed and matured during her time away from the track and is poised to put in a strong showing over her coming campaign.

KAYLEEN is raced by the Fortuna (N0 26) Syndicate and will be ridden this Saturday by the vastly experienced David Walsh.

Trainer Jason Bridgman Comments Here:

Kayleen returns to the races Saturday after a freshen up. Her first two runs were very good and she was unlucky not to win her second start. After ten days off she comes into this race without a trial and has put on a lot of condition and really strengthened in that time. It has been a blessing for her and her work has been first rate. While we expect natural improvement out of this race, with her experience and residual fitness, I expect a bold run fresh over 1100m. She should get a suitable track, handles a tight-turning track well, and has drawn nicely with leading West Coast rider David Walsh aboard. She can put herself handy with her barrier speed and provided she is fit enough, she will be a very strong each way chance.
