Kavanagh Racing – The Week Ahead

The Kavanagh stable has two starters this Anzac Day with the smart filly Oggalution debuting at Moe and Soho Ruby returning to city class at Flemington, while on Saturday, Kentucky Breeze is back to his best and ready to step out at Caulfield.

Levi Kavanagh takes us through each of his runners and gives an insight into their chances.

'Anzac Day Preview – Oggalution - Moe'

A first starter, the trip to Gippsland is well worthwhile for smart filly Oggalution to make the most of the $32,000 Super VOBIS and VOBIS Gold bonus on offer.

“Oggalution has progressed well through her preparation and is looking like a pretty handy filly. Based on her recent Flemington jump out, which was run in good time, I’m confident in her talent. Although there are a lot of promising first starters tomorrow, she has now had two trials and has improved significantly off each one. She has been in work for three months, so her fitness is good, and whatever the result tomorrow, she will improve from the experience.”

A daughter of VOBIS Sire, Kuroshiro and from the Authoroised (IRE) mare Sea Terrace, Oggalution is owned and named after the Old Geelong Grammer School crew, nicknamed the OGGS.

'Anzac Day Preview – Soho Ruby - Flemington'

Stable favourite, Soho Ruby is looking to forward to stepping out at her home track, Flemington tomorrow.

“Being a last start winner at headquarters against the boys, she is well suited and will enjoy a drop back to a fillies and mares race tomorrow. With five weeks between runs, she has had a nice freshen up and a solid jump out to ensure her fitness levels are right on track.
Drawing barrier 12, the gate will suit her running style, as she doesn’t like to be crowded on the rails. Being in the open with a bit of room, she will be able to travel to her best down the Flemington straight.”

A daughter of Northern Meteor, out of the Red Ransom mare, Red Rapture, Soho Ruby will no doubt have one of the biggest cheer squads on course tomorrow.

'Saturday - Kentucky Breeze - Caulfield'

Heading to Caulfield on Saturday off the back of winning a jump out at Flemington over 800m in good time, Kentucky Breeze looks back to his impressive spring form.“He enjoyed a spell at our family farm, and he is now showing that he is back to his old self and feeling great. He wasn’t quite 100% in the autumn, and although he was still running excellent times, he was just a bit flat in his runs, and lacked his usual spring in his step.

Saturday will be tough being first up over 1200m and carrying the top weight. He has won over this distance before, but this is a stronger grade, and he will be more suited as he gets up in trip. However, in saying that, he is fresh and showed great speed in his trial to warrant respect.”

A son of Pierro, out of the well bred Redoute’s Choice mare, Tahni Girl, Kentucky Breeze seems to be back to his best and looks to have an exciting preparation ahead for his owners.
