ADDINGTON RACEWAY RUNNERS - FRIDAY 14TH MAY 2021


RACE 2 – 5.09PM


Regal Attire

Barrier 3 – Driver: Natalie Rasmussen

He raced alright up North against some smart 3-year-olds. We are hoping he can get some form back on the board here.

RACE 3 – 5.40PM


Chase Auckland

Barrier 6 – Driver: Tim Williams

This is his first up run for quite some time. His trials have been sound leading into this race but he will take a lot of improvement from the run.

RACE 5 – 6.39PM


Shan Noble

Barrier 6 – Driver: Natalie Rasmussen

He is fresh up since the Derby. We have been pleased with his work at home recently and expect he will go a bold race here.

Pace N Pride

Barrier 7 – Driver: Tim Williams

A lovely colt who won well last start. He never goes a bad race and he should be right in the mix here.

Italian Lad

Barrier 10 – Driver: Samantha Ottley

A horse that very rarely finishes out of the first three. With some luck from the draw he can figure in the finish tonight.

RACE 6 – NZB STANDARDBRED HARNESS MILLION 2YO TROT – 7.09PM


Wy Fi

Barrier 4 – Driver: Natalie Rasmussen

He has been working well at home. If he does everything right in this and puts his best hoof forward he is a good place chance.

RACE 7 – 7.40PM


Samhara

Barrier 8 – Driver: Natalie Rasmussen

A nice win by him last time out. He has trained on very well since and with a trip in this he is a good chance to be winning again.

RACE 8 – LONE STAR SIRES STAKES AGED TROTTERS CLASSIC – 8.10PM


Oscar Bonavena

Barrier 8 – Driver: Natalie Rasmussen

He raced OK up North but his work has been a lot better this week. He looks to be a good chance to bounce back.

RACE 9 – NEVELE R FILLIES SERIES FINAL – 8.40PM


Bettor Twist

Barrier 12 – Driver: Natalie Rasmussen

She was super last start and we have been really happy with her at home. We expect her to go her usual great race.

RACE 11 – NZB STANDARDBRED HARNESS MILLION 2YO MALES FINAL – 9.40PM


Franco Mac

Barrier 1 – Driver: Natalie Rasmussen

A nice horse with a great draw, we expect him to go a bold race here.


Akuta

Barrier 6 – Driver: Blair Orange

Trialled up well last Tuesday and has trained on really well since. We are sure Blair will give him every opportunity tonight.


Bollinger

Barrier 9 – Driver: Jonny Cox

A horse who has been going honest races. He is drawn to get a soft trip here and if that happens and he gets a bit of luck he can get some of the this.


Cosmic Major

Barrier 11 – Driver: Tim Williams

A nice colt that has done nothing wrong to date in his limited starts. He should be one of the major players in this.

Willow Bay

Barrier 8 – Driver: Samantha Ottley

A good win by him here last week but a tricky draw to work with here. If he can get a trip and be handy turning in he will be a big threat.


Always Have Faith

Barrier 14 – Driver: John Dunn

He went great on debut and with some luck in the running he can run a cheeky race.

Video: Willow Bay (1st) & Always Have Faith (3rd) - Addington Raceway - 7th May 2021

RACE 12 – 10.05PM


Stag Party

Barrier 7 – Driver: Tim Williams

Been very solid in his last two outings and meets a similar field again here so he should be a great chance again.
