Volpe Veloce Well Ahead of Gr1

Thursday, 31st August 2017

Trainer Graham Richardson won't be losing any sleep worrying about the weather ahead of a Group One tilt for star mare Volpe Veloce at Hastings on Saturday, reports NZ Racing Desk. The Matamata conditioner prepares the $3 favourite for the Gr1 Tarzino Trophy (1400m) in partnership with Gavin Parker, with the Hastings track currently rated a Slow 7 and more rain forecast. "You start thinking too much and stressing about the weather," Richardson said. "She's well, we've done what we have to do and what will be, will be." He added: "She galloped on Tuesday at Matamata and did not handle the wet conditions at all, but Matamata is very heavy and Hastings is a different story." Volpe Veloce (Foxwedge-Bardego, by Barathea) extended her record to 8 wins from 9 starts when she resumed with an effortless win over 1200m at Te Rapa on 5 August.
