Vermair Update 18.8.15

Aug 18, 2015

The Vermair team was very happy with the whole stable of horses upon inspection yesterday.

The horses coats were looking super and with the exciting 3yo's all but ready to step out this season proves spring is just around the corner!

The first to wear the Vermair silks this season is LORDE ROYALS from Ballymore Stables when he resumes at Taupo tomorrow.

He has had one race day appearance where he was subsequently found to have a virus which accounts for his unplaced effort in what has proven to be a handy field. Prior to his debut he trialled up nicely, beating last seasons champion 2yo and Group1 winner Marky Mark. While he goes in fresh without a trial, we expect a bold run.

It will be difficult from his wide draw but experienced rider Vinnie Colgan takes the reins. It is a tricky track at Taupo but we will get a good surface and we are looking for an encouraging run to push onto the better 3yo races with him

Another exciting trial winner is the now 3yo filly VOLKS LIGHTNING. She will trial at Te Teko on the 25th before her resuming run. Her trial form has been super and we hope she can race up to her looks as she gets put on a 1000 Guineas path.

She was purchased from the Ready to Run sale last season and looks as if she has the ability to go through the grades. We are excited to see her step onto the track in the not too distant future.

Also running today for us is the Go Racing managed NO RETURN, after 2 solid placings a win looks near for him. He stays at the mile today but will be further improved when getting to 2000m. Blake Shinn rides and in a small field where he will likely start favourite, he should be very competitive. He races at Newcastle in race1 at 3.15pm NZ time.
