Penza on target for a century
Currently on 91 wins for the season, consistent jockey Jeff Penza is set to bring up his century of wins in the final month of the season and can make some more headway at Canberra on Friday.
Penza attributes his success to hard work, willingness to ride at most venues within reason, a good manger and support from local trainers.
Penza has a full book at Canberra on Friday. He then heads to Kembla on Saturday with seven rides and Mudgee on Sunday for five rides.
Penza starts his weekend aboard Clickerty Snip in the Food OnThe Run Catering 2YO (1280m) on Canberra’s Acton track.
“It looks a nice race for him, he hit the line strongly on debut and the extra ground should suit” Penza said.
“My other rides with chances are Zaracer and From Cork To Calais.”
Zaracer contests the Food On The Run Suppliers Maiden Plate (1280m).
“Zaracer ran a super race here last week.,” he said.
This is a weak maiden and she gets every chance from barrier one.
“I’m expecting her to be in the finish.”
From Cork To Calais tackles the happy 20th Anniversary Burger Benchmark 55 (1280m).
“He loves the Acton surface and always puts in,” he said.
“This looks a very winnable race.”
