Strategy’s Trainer Confident in Colt’s Capabilities
MELBOURNE, Victoria – Strategy is a colt who is three years old and was supposed to be a contender in today’s Bendigo horse race. His trainer is Lloyd Kennewell who spoke lately about his ward’s capabilities. Kennewell has expressed his confidence in Strategy’s potential to bring home the bacon in upcoming horse races. He said that bay-coloured racehorse’s attitude had developed considerably.
Additionally, Kennewell mentioned that, during the latest preparation sessions of Strategy, the racehorse had demonstrated great zeal. He relayed that Strategy was merely quite keen and that the racehorse had desired to get the horse racing preparations completed too fast. Last year, the young male racehorse, whose home track is Melbourne’s Caulfield Racecourse, fetched $1.7 million as a yearling at the Magic Millions Gold Coast Yearling Sale. Strategy’s pedigree hinted that he would make a Golden Slipper-kind. Nevertheless, that scenario did not take place.
With Strategy fetching a considerable price tag, Kennewell remarked that such cost drops off the racehorses quite rapidly once they depart the auctioneer’s ring. It took much longer than anticipated for the son of Oakleigh Girl, and I Am Invincible to get to the racetrack. Strategy went back to the spelling paddock to grow more, following two tests in January, as per the report by Australian horse racing news and information website, Racenet.
Today, Wednesday, November 11, Strategy was supposed to compete at the Bendigo horse race. Regular jockey Joe Bowditch was supposed to be the rider of the Kennewell-trained racehorse. However, Strategy got scratched in the competition, as per the schedule published online by Racenet and horse betting portal, SportsBet. In the horse race today happening northwest of Melbourne, Strategy’s career was supposed to begin in a $35,000-maiden contest.
Days before the scratched tilt, Kennewell described Strategy’s appearance as healthy and prepared for the forthcoming competition. He mentioned, however, that the Bendigo contender is a short-priced favourite in the horse race. Kennewell pointed out that this reality makes them merely pleased to send Strategy around and view how he would perform in the match. The racehorse trainer also shared that his colt had demonstrated a satisfactory jumping performance. Strategy’s trainer relayed that such action, however, is a low-key activity for them.
Kennewell stressed that their team would merely like to watch Strategy’s performance and that they intend to treat him like any other racehorse. He cited that they are hopeful Strategy would display good performance in the Bendigo competition. Nantucket is a $2.20-favourite in the Bendigo horse race today. He is a chestnut-coloured gelding who is the son of Just a Girl and Rubick.
Nantucket’s home track is the Flemington Racecourse in Victoria. Kennewell relayed that this three-year-old gelding trained by Levi Kavanagh would be challenging to defeat for Strategy. Nonetheless, Strategy’s trainer said that connections would obtain a favourable guide on where the colt’s capability lies. On what could have been his first-ever contest at Bendigo, Strategy was a $5.50 chance during TAB’s early market. Besides Nantucket, the other runners in today’s 1,000-metre Bendigo horse race are Russell Osborne’s Flying Finch, Bryan Maher’s Lanomroh, D. S. Archard’s Rokatta, and S. A. McIntosh’s Real Gun.
