Shadows Cast To Miss Gr1

Wednesday, 22nd August 2018

The postponement of yesterday's Foxton trials to next Tuesday has left Awapuni trainer Mark Oulaghan with little option but to withdraw Shadows Cast from the Gr1 Tarzino Trophy (1400m) at Hastings on Saturday week, reports NZ Racing Desk. "We were hoping to trial him today and that hasn't happened. We've decided not to trial at Taupo [on Wednesday] so we'll give the first day at Hastings a miss," Oulaghan said. "He handles soft going to a point but I don't want to kick him off on a track that doesn't suit. We'll just have to be a bit flexible and do the right thing by the horse." Oulaghan has now switched his attention to the Gr1 Windsor Park Plate (1600m) at Hastings on 22 September 22. "He hasn't done a lot of galloping but what he's done, he's done pretty well. We're happy with him," he said. Shadows Cast is a winner of 8 of his 27 starts, including last November's Gr2 Coupland's Bakeries Mile (1600m).
