Australian Autumn in Te Akau's Sights

Monday, 11th November 2019

Meanwhile, Te Akau trainer Jamie Richards headed home from Melbourne on Sunday morning with his focus on a massive summer of racing in his home patch, but also with one eye firmly to the future which is Australia in the autumn for his stable big guns. According to NZ Racing Desk, Richards and team Te Akau Racing have produced a stunning run over the Melbourne and Sydney carnivals with the trio of Melody Belle, Te Akau Shark and Probabeel combining for a Gr1 win, four Gr1 placings and two Gr2 placings from just eight starts. Richards will now have the task of working out what the autumn will hold for the stable headline acts, a project he indicated was already underway. “It’s a fairly short turnaround between now and the autumn even though it might seem a wee way off just yet,” he said. “Probabeel and Avantage obviously came back home earlier than the other two and they have been back in light work at the stable for the past week. Te Akau Shark is enjoying some good grass out at Te Akau Stud and Melody Belle will take her turn in the paddock when she gets home but they will both be back in the stable fairly quickly if we want them at peak for the autumn.”
