30/6/22 - "Cookie" is such an honest horst and tries his heart out - problem is finding him a suitable distance race at the moment. Pulled up good following his 5th placing at Dubbo last Sunday.
23/6/22 - ran a great 2nd at Mudgee picnics on last Saturday where he was a bit slow away and flew home to be beaten by a short half head. Pulled up super and will have a quick backup in a 1600m BM66 at Dubbo on Sunday 26th. Has won before on a quick backup.
17/6/22 - "Cookie" has been working great and will head to Mudgee (Bligh Picnic meeting) on Saturday 18th June for a 1850m Cup with Will Stanley in the saddle - should go close.
1/6/22 - "Cookie" has been going good and will go to Dubbo on Friday 3rd June for a BM58 over 1600m where we expect him to be very competitive. Chelsea has the ride from barrier 4.
25/5/22 - really pleased with "Cookie's" trial at Dubbo on Monday where he was able to tack on nicely at the end. Was a good fitness hit-out for him.
4/5/22 - "Cookie" has been going very well in his work and we may nominate him for the Parkes Cup over 1600m on 15th May. Terribly hard to find a race of suitable distance for him at the moment except for the cups.
27/4/22 - "Cookie" pulled up good from his last start 9th placing at Bathurst Anzac Day over the unsuitable 1400m. He's in a good frame of mind - just need to find him a 1600m race.
20/4/22 - working great and has been nominated for the Soldiers Saddle at Bathurst on Anzac Day (Class 4 Hcp over 1400m). A bit of a throw at the stumps but he deserves his chance - would be good to see him get a start. Put in a huge run when 4th at Dubbo last Sunday.
14/4/22 - "Cookie" is very fresh in his work and will head to Dubbo on Sunday 17th April for a Class 3 Hcp over 1400m. Coming back in distance but needs the run and if he goes OK will back up at Bathurst on 25th April. Drawn No.1 barrier.
30/3/22 - not disappointed in his 10th placing at Orange last week where he gave it his best shot. Chelsea said he felt good in the run. May go to Orange next week for a 1600m race.
17/3/22 - really happy with his work and he'll head to Orange on Sunday to run in the Orange Cup Prelude over his pet distance of 1600m. Looks a very strong race on paper but we're hoping he'll be coming home strongly. Will be ridden by Chelsea from barrier 3.
3/3/22 - "Cookie" will head to Cowra on Monday for a BM74 Hcp over 1375m. Really fresh and bright in his work and hopefully will run on - needs the run.
23/2/22 - back from a short freshen up and looking for a race for him in next week or 2.
17/2/22 - have given "Cookie" a couple of weeks off and will bring him back fresh - hopefully get to the races in about 3 weeks.
9/2/22 - good run at Gilgandra last Saturday where "Cookie" finished 4th of 12 over 1550m despite copping a fair bit of buffeting in the run. Will have a couple of "easy" weeks before getting back into it.
27/1/22 - very happy with "Cookie's" 5th placing at Bathurst on Tuesday and he pulled up as though he hadn't had a run. We're confident that he has his foot on the till.
19/1/22 - only beaten 5 and a half lengths at Canberra last Wednesday and we weren't disappointed in that run. Pulled up good and he's been nominated for a BM58 over 1800m at Bathurst on Tuesday 25th January.
30/12/21 - going to Gilgandra (a track he likes) on New Years Day for a BM50 Hcp over 1600m. His work has been really, really good.
15/12/21 - finished 12th at Warren last Friday (10th) but just couldn't sprint with them. Looking at BM58 Hcp over 1400m at Bathurst Monday 20th December which will be a good chance to get his fitness levels up as we head to a 1600m race soon.
1/12/21 - happy with his work - looking for the right race for him.
7/10/21 - working great and getting close to racing - might even look at going to Bathurst next week with him.
22/9/21 - is working good and may get to the races in 3-4 weeks time.
Going steady - just not sure where he's at just at the moment.
