The Track King Open – 17th December 2016 – Rocky Mountain Ridge Racecourse


The Track King Open

Questions should be answered with the running of this 2850m feature race for stayers today. Most of the hopefuls are seasoned racers. Several are world cup winners, some have a string of firsts to their name, many have started at very short odds on previous starts.This should be a serious contest of tactics and wits between some top stables today.

1. Lunastarz

9yo mare from woodchuckers, Career earnings: $9,338,244
Overall rating: Majestic(81) – Mud-lark
Born:Fri 2nd Jan 2015, bred by Red Sox
Lineage:By Frost Posie out of Peppermint Pattie
Recent form:1,1,1,1,2

Stable comments: – “A big TKO ahead and in what looks like an even field, my view is that Lunastarz is an outsider. I hope she gives cheek but it’s hard to say on dead. Ersin’s Requiem and trouble’s Riewoltd look the ones to beat.”

2. Eisheth

9yo mare from Sootie, Career earnings: $2,472,242
Overall rating: Marvelous(78) – Natural champion
Born:Fri 2nd Jan 2015, bred by JamesBrown
Lineage:By Paulo Cully out of Bento 
Recent form:9,3,3,2,1

Stable comments: – “With the track drying out and it being dead for the final it should rule out the muddies, however it’s still anyone’s game as there’s plenty of decent OR horses with the exp to win it. I’m hoping for top 3-5 finish but better yet 1st as the prize money is always lovely in the TKO.”

3. Requiem

10yo stallion from Bristol Turks, Career earnings: $5,254,546
Overall rating: Majestic(81) – Competitive
Born:Sun 5th Oct 2014, bred by Royal Breeders
Lineage:By Pops Her Gale out of More Clean Geebee 
Recent form:1,1,1,4,1

Stable comments: – “I’m not sure what to expect in this one. I think this will depend on the weather. If the going stays slow you gotta fancy one of the mudlarks. But if it’s dead, then Requiem should have a chance for a top3 finish as he’s the one with the most XP on dead.”
