Kawi Seeking Gr1 Treble

Wednesday, 30th August 2017

New Plymouth trainer Allan Sharrock says Kawi (Savabeel-Magic Time, by Volksraad) is in top shape as he bids to make it three consecutive victories in Saturday's Gr1 Tarzino Trophy (1400m) at Hastings. Kawi, who resumed with an encouraging third in the Gr2 Foxbridge Plate at Te Rapa on 19 August, has won the past two editions of the feature when it was known as the Makfi Challenge Stakes. "He had a gallop on Saturday morning and he went over 1000 metres this morning [Tuesday] and he worked well," Sharrock told NZ Racing Desk. "We had a lot of rain and the track was quite testing. I would have loved a firmer surface for him, but he's got the class and he's done the work." He added: "I think he is ahead of where he was this time last year. I'm happy where we're at."
