Marsh Four-Handed In Gr1

Friday, 27th January 2017

Stephen Marsh will step into uncharted territory at Trentham tomorrow when he saddles four runners for the Gr1 Thorndon Mile, reports NZ Racing Desk. The Cambridge trainer will still be pinching himself as he watches the quartet of Thee Auld Floozie, Seize The Moment, Ruud Not Too and Serious Satire head down to the start. "It's very exciting and it's created a bit of talk too. It feels pretty good to have been able to get all four in there. It was always something we'd worked towards," Marsh said. "They all had their final gallops at Cambridge this morning and they all worked exceptionally well too. They are in great order and we just need a bit of luck in running now." Ruud Not Too heads the Marsh runners in the TAB's final field market for the Thorndon at $6, with Thee Auld Floozie rated a $10.50 chance, Seize The Moment at $18 and Serious Satire at $28. Of the quartet, Marsh seemed to slightly favour 5YO grey mare Thee Auld Floozie who is coming off a narrow defeat to stable-mate Seize The Moment in the Gr3 Anniversary Handicap (1600m) at trentham two weeks ago. "The conditions really suit Thee Auld Floozie. She's rated 99 and carries 53.5kg...[she] gets into the race brilliantly," Marsh said.
