Kentucky back on track

 

Kentucky Breeze returns to the track today for the start of his Spring Campaign. The six-year-old gelding will take his place in The Sofitel, a Listed race over 1400m, with the aim of getting out to 2000m plus this preparation.

His trainer Levi Kavanagh could not be happier with Kentucky Breeze’s work leading up to today but believes he will be better for the run and looks forward to getting him out over more distance.

“He has won at Flemington before over 1400m, but this preparation is geared more towards 2000m and beyond, said Levi.

“I think he should take a lot improvement from the run; he is still a bit hairy and has a bit of a winter coat.

“I have been really happy with his trials leading up to today, but I still think it will be a little short for him first up. I’ll be looking for him to be running through the line strongly.”

Michael Rodd picks up the ride with regular rider Jamie Kah sidelined for two weeks.

“Jumping from barrier 7 they should be able to settle mid field and off the fence, exactly where he likes it.”

Levi also had a quite winter with only one horse to race. He has the majority of his team geared up for the Spring and early Summer. He cannot wait to get stable stars Excess Funds and Wild Vixen back to the races and is equally excited about his unraced youngsters who are showing a lot of potential.

“Excess Funds resumes at Caulfield next week. He is going as good as ever, as long as the tracks stay dry, he is up for his best prep yet.

“I also have some unraced horses who are doing everything right, hopefully I can get them to some of the feature three-year-old races.”

“Spring is such an exciting time of the year, it won’t be quite the same without owners at the races, but I will do my best to keep them as involved as possible. Hopefully all the horses perform well, and they get just as big a thrill watching from home.”
