Litt Confident Morton’s Fork Will Perform Well at Doomben
NEW SOUTH WALES, Australia – Richard Litt has spoken about Morton’s Fork’s outlook before the NAIDOC – Racing Queensland Celebration Race this coming Saturday, November 14. He remarked that his seven-year-old gelding is truly a fantastic racehorse. Also, Litt described Morton’s Fork as a large pet, which makes him one of a kind.
The son of Dilemmas and Ad Valorem has got the green light from his trainer to compete in Brisbane. Saturday’s event is a 2,200-metre tilt that is going to take place at the Doomben Racing Club. With this sporting occasion, Morton’s Fork will travel from Litt’s Warwick Farm stable, going to another 1,800-kilometre round of journey.
Litt expressed his faith in his ward. He relayed that his team is confident that Morton’s Fork will perform excellently at the NAIDOC event. Morton’s Fork’s trainer did not seem fazed with the possibility of the gelding losing on Saturday’s NAIDOC event. Litt added that, in a couple of weeks, his racehorse would depart for Moonee Valley if he loses in this weekend’s contest where there is still a Benchmark 90 competition that will suit Morton’s Fork.
The brown galloper is reportedly a seasoned traveller, as per his trainer. On the road, Morton’s Fork has spent countless hours. He has journeyed up and down Australia’s seaboard located in the east to compete in any of the four states. Litt confirmed that Morton’s Fork is, indeed, a fan of travelling. In the past 13 months, he cited that his racehorse had added over 8,500 kilometres in a horse float. Litt described Morton’s Fork as an old marvel and an amazing traveller, adding that the racehorse is a great one, would travel well, and perform his best.
Litt remarked that Moton’s Fork had been to Queensland’s capital a couple of times, displaying his running prowess there. He added that, in Sydney, his charge had competed well against the top-ranked racehorses. Litt cited that effort had demonstrated Morton’s Fork was back almost in his best for his latest excursion. He pointed out that this most recent travel could conclude with a crack in January at a rich competition in Queensland’s Magic Millions carnival.
Morton’s Fork’s trainer shared about his charge’s tilts and other plans for him. Litt relayed that the Warwick Farm stable resident had not competed in Melbourne since last spring’s unfortunate effort. He said that his gelding, nonetheless, played a crucial role in Castelvecchio’s preparation. The latter is a former stable star who was getting ready for Cox Plate.
Litt said that Castelvecchio had a wonderful time with Morton’s Fork, especially enjoying the gelding’s tranquil demeanour on his first excursion away from home. The colt landed on the second place after Japanese galloping superstar Lys Gracieux bested the other contenders in the Cox Plate sporting event.
Litt remarked that Morton’s Fork had still been holding his own, though he said that the racehorse had been getting on a bit again. The racehorse trainer shared that his ward’s last start was a ripper. Additionally, he cited that Morton’s Fork will return to Sydney for the ATC Cup, then head to the Christmas Cup. Then, Morton’s Fork will come back to Brisbane for his attempt to qualify for the Magic Millions again, according to Litt.
