Inglis looking for fourth Provincial Championship
Kalgoorlie-Boulder Racing Club Chairman and leading Goldfields’ owner Andrew Inglis is looking forward to seeing his gallopers take to the track on Sunday.
Inglis who races his gallopers with leading trainer Peter Fernie, has six gallopers engaged tomorrow with two of them to line up in the Skyracing.Tv Provincial Championship Series Heat.
Placegetters in the heat will be given the opportunity to line up in Provincial Championship Final worth $60,000 to take place at Belmont on May 21.
Inglis has had previous success taking out the Championship in 2007, 2008 and 2012 with Captain Zero, Saffron Fire and Wookah respectively.
Inglis has Thidwick The Moose and The Cruel Sea engaged in Kalgoorlie’s heat tomorrow and is buoyant about their chances if luck can go their way.
Thidwick The Moose is second up this preparation coming off a two length defeat behind Bear Trader.
“Thidwick (The Moose) is a big horse and needs plenty of space in running, on his day he’s as good as any of the going around” Inglis said.
“He’s a giant of a horse who was really well performed for us last year”
Inglis is not shy when expressing his opinion of Blackfriars’ four year old The Cruel Sea and his aspirations going forward.
“We like to think he has all the potential in the world, potential that hopefully can take us deep into September”
The Cruel Sea has won four from fourteen and tomorrow will be his second run this preparation.
Inglis is excited about Mince Pie having her first career start coming off an impressive trial last week.
“At this stage, we are reasonably confident we should go alright with the horse, it’s a long road when you breed them so it will be good to see her race”
The filly is a daughter of Wocket In A Pocket, who Inglis raced in the Goldfields prior to retiring in 2011.
Inglis chose stallion Due Sasso to send his mare to, after establishing a connection to the sire with his mare Folly Lane.
“One of the first horses we bred was to Due Sasso so that’s who we sent Wocket In A Pocket to, we won a serve to Due Sasso in Broome one day with Folly Lane, she produced She’s Gaga and since then we have sent a few more to him”
When asked as Chairman how the season has gone to date, Inglis is pleased with the results so far.
“We have had really good crowds on course and I’m looking forward to settling into our Sunday race days from here on in”
“The fields are good this week and I expect them to be good throughout the season”
Inglis also has Rafferty, Haul In and Yeah Yeah Yeah engaged which appear each way chances.
