Hello Members and welcome to Kingstar Racing Club’s first weekly newsletter.
This weekend is set to be the Weight For Age (WFA) highlight of the Australian racing calendar, as the mighty mare Winx goes for an unprecedented 4th Cox Plate at Moonee Valley. Running the 1200m race 4 is our very own interest Into The Abyss; a cracker of a mare out of Foxwedge. With a great draw of barrier 3, we are expecting a peak performance. At her last start at Caulfield she was 5th behind Sunlight and I spoke to jockey Damien Lane post-race and he was very keen on her next run.
Other runners this Saturday include a trio for trainer Gwenda Markwell at Kembla Grange; Fortification, Thor’s Thunder and Lonny Lonny. Lonny Lonny’s last start saw her on the wrong part of the track with a heavy 9 and swamped late. This time around expect a cheeky race at odds. Fortification was duel accepted and has taken the tougher challenge in race 6 but has good each way odds. Thor’s Thunder in race 7 is very consistent with and over 50% place ratio.
