Home Features Beckon For Volkstok'n'barrell
Volkstok'n'barrell is enjoying a break in Queensland before his return home to prepare for a domestic Group One campaign, reports NZ Racing Desk. "He'll stay there for about another three weeks and then we'll get him back and into work," co-trainer Donna Logan said. "Ideally, we'll look toward the Group One races at Hastings; there's the Captain Cook and then at Ellerslie." Volkstok'n'barrell collected minor placings in the Gr2 Hollindale Stakes and the Gr1 Doomben Cup and was given a break after tailing the field home in the Listed Wayne Wilson Mile at Eagle Farm. The son of Tavistock had earned a trip to Australia after collecting consecutive domestic Gr1 wins in the WFA Classic and the New Zealand Stakes earlier this year.
