Weather With You Still on Derby Trail
Talented Kiwi 3YO Weather With You will continue his progress towards the Victoria Derby (2500m) when he tackles the Listed UCI Stakes (1800m) at Flemington on Saturday week, reports NZ Racing Desk. Co-trainer Murray Baker said he was pleased with the performance of the Teofilo gelding who finished fourth behind fellow Classic aspirant Tavistock Abbey in the Victoria Derby Trial (1800m) at Flemington on Wednesday. "It was a pretty good run. They went very slowly and Luke Nolen had to take hold of him a couple of times, then they sprinted from the 500m," Baker said. "He never gave it away and was still coming at the end. We just need to win some prize money to make sure he gets into the Derby."
