HERENGAWE AIMED AT WINTER CUP

HERENGAWE AIMED AT WINTER CUP

The Group 3 $100,000 Winter Cup (1600m) at Riccarton on August 3 remains firmly on the agenda for promising winter galloper Herengawe after he made it five wins from only 12 starts at Awapuni on Saturday.

“He’s quite an exciting horse, a good up-and-comer,” Waverley trainer Joanne Moss said.

“He’s gone through the grades nicely this season, he’s just cruising along and seems to be a happy horse. It was a really good win today. You take every win as it comes in this game, because they’re not easy to get.”

Looking ahead with the four-year-old, Moss added: “We’ve nominated him for the Winter Cup next month, so we’ll see what happens.

“The plan was to run in this race first, and if he went well, have a go at the Opunake Cup in a couple of weeks. Then we could carry on to the Winter Cup after that. But we’ll be watching the weather as well, so we’ll just see how we go.”
