Exciting Weekend Ahead For TBB
This coming weekend looms as an exciting one for TBB with a number of runners in the coming days including, I'M Telling Ya's first run since the Guineas Prelude, Coastal Note's first start and Zoot Suit Riot resuming.
Amy Johnston has accepted for both Cranbourne on Friday night in the Ritchies Carrum Downs BM64 Handicap over 1400m and also on Saturday at Caulfield in the Listed Polytrack Gothic Stakes over the same trip.
Luke Currie is booked to ride on Friday night in the Benchmark 64 event while Craig Newitt will take the ride if the colt runs on Saturday.
I'm Telling Ya's last start was in the Group 3 Guineas Prelude where he had no luck and finished in the back half of the field after a rough run in transit and then being forced wide around the home turn. Before his Guineas Prelude run he had had three starts for two fourths and a win at Racing.com Park on the Synthetic.
I'm Telling Ya is part-owned by Bruce Maya's Mayford Park.
Coastal Note is expected to make her long awaited debut on Saturday in the first race at Avoca and is also part-owned by Mayford Park, in a deal brokered by Todd Blum Bloodstock.
The three-year-old Host filly has been entered and scratched a number of times as trainer Adam O'Neill has been trying to dodge rain and heavy tracks.
Kassie Furness has been booked to ride in the CAM’S Security 3YO Maiden Plate over 1175m, a distance which O'Neill believes will not totally suit the filly.
"This filly is bred to stay but we will be using this race as a lead up to hopefully building her up in distance, said O'Neill.
"We have been really patient with her and she has just taken all before her but we were really conscious of running her on a really heavy track for her first start.
"She is a really nice filly and we believe that she will continue to furnish into a nice stayer."
On Sunday the racing heads to Echuca where speedster, Zoot Suit Riot (pictured), will have his first run back after a much deserved spell.
The gelded son of Not A Single Doubt was Todd Blum Bloodstock's first winner after selling share's as well as being involved in the ownership.
Cory Parish is booked to ride in the Moama Bowling Club BM58 Handicap over 1009m, the last event of the day.
"It will be great to see Zoot Suit Riot back at the races after a spell as he just kept giving it his all last prep after his first up win and we will be looking to take full advantage of the drop back in grade," said Todd Blum.
