Earthquake To Avoid Wet

Wednesday, 20th August 2014

Trainer John O'Shea says that star filly Earthquake (Exceed and Excel-Cataclysm, by Marauding) will not run in the Gr2 Silver Shadow Stakes (1200m) at Randwick on Saturday if the track is heavy, reports racingnetwork.com.au. "She worked sensationally this morning, so she's ready to go, but I don't want to give her a gut-buster on a 'heavy 10' first-up, she's got a long preparation ahead of her," said O'Shea. "We'll wait until Saturday morning and see how the track comes up before making any decision, but if it's heavy she won't run." The Bureau of Meteorology is forecasting rain all week in Sydney including over the weekend.
