Hucklebuck Ready For Goodwood

Tuesday, 12th May 2015

Hucklebuck (Elvstroem-Kondari, by O'Reilly) is primed for a bold first-up performance in Saturday's Gr1 Goodwood (1200m) at Morphettville after scoring an impressive barrier trial win at Gawler on Friday, reports horseracing.com.au. "He's come through the trial well," trainer Phillip Stokes told The Advertiser. "A couple beat him out at the start...but he pulled his way to the front and won by about four lengths." He added, "He had a bit of a blow after the trial. He'll have one more piece of work between now and Saturday. That should have him pretty much where we want him. He probably looks a little bit too good going into the race. He's still got improvement in him." The 4YO will be having his first start since winning the Gr1 Emirates Stakes (1600m) at Flemington in the spring.
