Just a quick update on Tarpins. He ran a solid fifth last start at Kyneton, led around the straight and ran on well. He was coming third 50 metres from the line, but the leaders cut him off and Rawiller had to stop riding. He finished only 1.7 lengths behind the leader. Trainer and jockey were both rapt with the run.
He’s racing again at Cranbourne on Sunday in a 2025 metre race. The stable expect him to give a strong showing, now he’s had two solid runs under his belt and is back to his favoured distance.
1.20 pm – Race 3 Horse 3 – Jockey is Brad Rawiller again and he’s out of barrier 5.
We’ll be heading out there on Sunday to watch.
