Happy Mother’s Day to all our wonderful clients, friends and family. Always a lovely day of the year.
Today Oakland Park will be represented by three runners. Our best chance is the talented Sessions 3YO Massimo. He was to race last week but had to be scratched due to a grass seed causing a jaw abscess. That race was benchmark 78+ where today he drops to a benchmark 68+ which he will enjoy, although he does have to lump 61 kilograms. He is a big strong horse and with the aid of a good barrier, he should be able to be given a soft run by Wily Pike.
Our 7YO Viscount gelding Pushin’ Shapes drops back to a benchmark 72 + race, but for the pleasure has been given a massive 65 kilograms. Team Peace has elected to claim 3 kilograms but will still have to a fair bit of weight. Unfortunately, he hasn’t fired in his three runs in this campaign, two at stakes level and last start in the Diggers Cup.
Our final runner for the day is the Star Witness 4Yo gelding Locomotive. He goes around in the last race of the day. It is a full field of 16 he is one from the outside fence, so we need a lot of luck and a good ride by Shaun Mc Gruddy. Last start he worked home to run sixth beaten 2.7 lengths in a benchmark 72+. Today he drops back to a benchmark 64+.
Good luck to our partners and enjoy tomorrow.
