Noted Trial Horses engaged on January 12/14
GOLD COAST SATURDAY: Altair (R1); Kaepernick (R5); Invincible Star (R5); Czarson (R8); Arbeitsam (R9)
KAEPERNICK (Canterbury December 20): First outing since his second at Flemington on November 8 and it was typical of his racing style that he settled at the rear before peeling to the outside on straightening where he quickly built momentum to sweep past his rivals with his trademark turn of foot in the quickest of the 4 1⁄2 f heats (54.61; 34.47). They pick and choose his races but there is certain to be a suitable summer sprint for him in coming weeks.
CZARSON (Warwick Farm December 27): Locked horns with his highly vaunted unbeaten stablemate UNITE AND CONQUER and clearly took the honours with an impressive last 2 f, driving to the line strongly to win in the fastest of all the 4 f heats (46.20; 32.90). His stablemate led easily sitting four off the fence but it was the last 0 from this youngster that really impressed as he easily made up the leeway and went through the line in fine style. Both youngsters head to the Magic Millions Classic with this trial indicating there is very little between the pair.
