Lock's Star Flying High

Monday, 4th December 2017

Peter Lock might not have to wait too much longer for the first Group One success of his lengthy training career, reports NZ Racing Desk. Lock's aptly-named stable star Hiflyer moved a step closer to fulfilling the Te Aroha horseman's racing dream following a heart-stopping performance to win Saturday's Gr3 Eagle Technology Stakes (1600m) at Ellerslie. "I'm in two minds what to do at the moment, the horse will tell us in the next day or two what to do," he said. The Gr1 Captain Cook Stakes (1600m) at Trentham this weekend is a possibility, albeit a remote one. "I don't really think he's a horse to back up so we'll go home now and have a think about it," said Lock, who has been training for more than three decades. "We could stop now and freshen him up and then maybe have a go at the Thorndon Mile at Wellington. It's all pretty exciting."
