Volkstok'n'barrell To Singapore
Multiple Group One winning Kiwi galloper Volkstok'n'barrell (Tavistock) is set to fly the flag for Donna Logan's new stable at Kranji, reports NZ Racing Desk. The Ruakaka horsewoman is on the road to recovery after suffering a fractured skull in a fall last month that has so far prevented her from travelling to Singapore to commence the next chapter in her training career. Volkstok'n'barrell is unlikely to race before his departure. "We're just keeping him ticking over until he heads up there," Logan's New Zealand training partner Chris Gibbs said. Last seen finishing third in the Gr1 Zabeel Classic (2000m) at Ellerslie on Boxing Day, Volkstok'n'barrell has four Group 1 victories to his credit, namely the Rosehill Guineas, Maori Stakes, New Zealand Stakes and Herbie Dyke Stakes.
