Fortuna horses racing 3rd/4th July


Three runners this weekend, two in Singapore Friday night and one at Te Rapa Saturday

First away in Singapore Friday is 4yo KING SAVINSKY who ran a creditable 3rd placing last week after being slow away and now backs up in a Kanji D Stakes event over 2200 metre on the Turf track. To be ridden bt Stable Apprentice, Shafiq Rusof, who is in white hot form, “THE KING” looks very well placed in this event. Race 3 at 11.20pm Friday evening NZ Time.

Race 8 at 1.50am Sat morning NZ Time, see five time winner EATONS GOLD tackle a quality Class 3 field over 1000 metres on the polytrack. Drawn 3 at the barrier, Trainer Mark Walker has elected to go for a claiming rider, CK Ng, and take 4kgs off EATON’s back. The pace will be hot in this race and with a nice run from the draw, EATON has a chance of finishing over the top of them with his light weight of just 49.5kgs.

Te Rapa on Saturday sees 4yo HIGHLY LIKELY, contest the Rating 65 2100 metre event, race 4 @ 1.25pm. Somewhat disappointing in this current campaign, after winning twice in his first campaign, HIGHLY LIKELY is down in grade and will get track conditions to suit. He will be ridden by Craig Grylls.
