Goulburn Racing – From the city to the bush


1A horse that had her last run in a metropolitan Saturday race looks hard to beat in a maiden at Goulburn on Tuesday.

The Robert Price trained Jubilee ran sixth to the promising Red Tracer in a three-year-old fillies benchmark 75 handicap at Randwick on 29 January.

Red Tracer went on to be placed in the Group Two Light Fingers Stakes at Randwick on Saturday so the effort by Jubilee to finish just more than six lengths from the winner looks a strong form reference for a country maiden.

Jubilee is a daughter of Dehere and looks set to break her maiden status in the Australian Stockyard Company Maiden Plate (1400m).

“Jubilee’s run in Sydney behind Red Tracer was good and she does look suited on Tuesday,” Price said.

“She was a good thing beaten at Nowra on January 10.

“Jubilee almost came down at the 600m and her effort to finish within three-lengths of the winner was a good pointer to Tuesday’s race.

“Jubilee’s work has been good and if she can get some luck in the run she should go close to winning.

“She’s the pick of my runners on Tuesday.”

Price has high hopes for Purring Flyer who makes her debut in the Glen Mia ACT Maiden Plate (1200m).

The three-year-old daughter of Catbird won a trial at Kembla Grange in September last year.
“Purring Flyer did a good job in the trial,” Price said.

“She suffered a virus half way through her preparation which put us back a bit a bit, but she is over that now.

“Her work has been good and she will be right in the finish with even luck from the outside barrier.”
