AWAPUNI TRACKWORK Thursday, January 16 By RON GURNEY Wellington Cup lightweight Johnny Lincoln and Desert Gold Stakes prospect Kellys Inspiration were impressive in separate gallops at Awapuni this morning. All fast work was on the plough (good), where Johnny Lincoln was paired with stablemate Lincoln Green over 1000m in 1.2.3, coming the final 800m in 49.2, the last 600 in 36.9. Johnny Lincoln, a multiple place-getter in the lower grades, blotted his copybook at Awapuni last start, but he is certainly fit enough to go 3200 metres on Saturday. Nine previous starts at Trentham have yielded four seconds, two thirds and two fourths. Meanwhile, Kellys Inspiration (Desert Gold Stakes) had stablemate Flickering Shadow for a partner over 800m in 48.1, the last 600 in 35.9. Kellys Inspiration won a maiden sprint at Waipukurau three start ago, and has performed with credit in two three-year-old races (1400m) since. Her track-work this week has been first-class. Flickering Shadow, in at Otaki on Monday (mdn 1200m), has made steady progress in four starts this campaign. Maidstone Park and Master Lincoln, rivals in the r65 mile on Monday, were on terms throughout 1000m in 1.3.4, the last 600 in 36.3. Form maiden Lincoln Town (by Tavistock), resuming on Monday (mdn 1400m), and Love Potion gathered speed from the 1000m mark to their final 800m in 50.1, the last 600 in 37.1, and Wellington acceptor Original Gangster (r65 mile) clocked 52.2 and 37.7. Colorado Star and un-raced Vespa two-year-old Parisian Poppy ran 800m in 52.6, the last 600 in 38.3, while last-start maiden winner Rukita and Colorado Miss did 1000m in 1.5.2 and 39 even. They are both in at Otaki. Wellington entrants Blue On Black (r82 mile), who won fresh up on Marton Cup day, and Queen Kamada (Desert Gold Stakes) covered 1000m in a well-held 1.10.8, the last 600 in 40.3. Blue On Black is thriving. Excelleration (r72 1400m) was not after time over 800m in 54.8, the last 600 in 40.1, and neither was Durham Lad (3yo 1200m) with 55.8 and 40.7. Hank Moody (r72 2200m), who ran fifth in the Wellington Cup last year, was given an easy 1000m in 1.11.5, the last 600 in 43.1. Australian visitor Winter Bride (Telegraph Hp) pace-worked two rounds on the sand track.
