Boom three-year-old Tannhauser was clearly the stand-out performance of the weekend, as he again gave his rivals a galloping lesson.
Having turned plenty of heads when breaking his maiden status two back, Tannhauser was sent out the very short priced favourite ($1.20) and duly saluted.
On face value, Olympic Anthem’s ninth place first-up from a six-month break may have fallen short of a few expectations, but English trainer James Peters was not at all unpleased with the run.
To the second-year handler, it was a fair comeback race for the Polytrack expert who gave him his first-ever win at his first day in the office on April 1 last year.
A return to the Colonial Chief Stakes conditions has boosted the confidence in Daniel’s camp for an improved run on Sunday.
The Guillotine grey recorded a pulsating win in the Group 3 Polytrack race over 1700m on the last day of the 2016 season in December, which happened to be his first win in more than a year. The Laurie Laxon-trained gelding’s last hurrah came in the one-off SG50 Trophy – which was, however, run over 1400m on turf in August 2015 to commemorate Singapore’s 50th birthday.
Trainer Leslie Khoo saddles a trio of two-year-olds in this Sunday’s $90,000 Singapore Silver Horseshoe (1000m), but doubts any one of them will be his next Kubera Warrior.
Two years ago, Kubera Warrior handed him a first win in one the Legs of the Singapore Golden Horseshoe series, the Inglis Sydney Juvenile Stakes (1000m), which was then slated as the first Leg of the two-year-old challenge.
Track rider Mohamad Faiz rode a pony once, but at the time, had no idea if there was a difference between a pony and a thoroughbred.
The 23-year-old Singaporean had that first pony ride when he visited a riding lodge near Johor Bahru in Malaysia on a holiday a few years ago.
Racehorses are our prized assets at the Singapore Turf Club. They are the key elements in the game of horse racing. These athletes need to be properly taken care of and looked after to ensure optimum performance in races.
Not everyone has the chance to work with these unique animals as closely as stable staff does. At least, it’s cooler to hang out with horses than computers all day!
