Thunder Lady & Gust Of Wind Continue Cups Prep

Thursday, 10th September 2015

Trainer John Sargent will also be represented by Kirramosa's fellow New Zealand-bred Cup hopes Thunder Lady and Gust Of Wind on Saturday, reports NZ Racing Desk. Thunder Lady (Mastercraftsman-Thunderchine, by Thunder Gulch), runner-up in last season's VRC Oaks, has been out twice this preparation and will step up to 1800 metres at Rosehill in the Ranvet Handicap. The 4YO will carry 60.5kg after apprentice Koby Jennings' claim. "That's a fair weight for a mare with her record," Sargent said. "She's now getting to a trip that suits her." Meanwhile, stable-mate and Australian Oaks winner Gust of Wind (Darci Brahma-Starrystarrynight, by Sadler's Wells) will head south to Flemington where she will be ridden by Blake Shinn in the Gr1 Makybe Diva Stakes. She has had one run since a break and although unplaced, she was only four lengths from the winner, Royal Descent, in last month's Gr2 Warwick Stakes.
