Stable Star In Top Order For Trentham
Ruakaka trainers Donna Logan and Chris Gibbs can't fault Volkstok'n'barrell (Tavistock-Volkster, by Volksraad) leading into tomorrow's Gr1 Thorndon Mile at Trentham, reports NZ Racing Desk. The three-time Gr1 winner, who will be conceding weight to all of his rivals, has done particularly well since he finished runner-up in the Gr1 Zabeel Classic at Ellerslie on Boxing Day. "He's in great shape, but he's not particularly well in on Saturday although it's better than him carrying 64kg at Pukekohe," Logan said. "The race will keep him right up to the mark for the Herbie Dyke Stakes [Gr1]."
