AWAPUNI TRACKWORK Tuesday, June 2 By RON GURNEY Hunterville trainer Lydia Pickford has a small team building nicely for the resumption of racing in early July, and she had a handful of them on hand to gallop on the plough at Awapuni this morning. Fast work took place on the plough (good) and on the No 1 grass (dead). Pickford's three-year-old filly Tumbleweed (by Super Easy) took the time honours with 800m in 51.5, the last 600 in 37.7. Tumbleweed is a former northerner, whose sole victory in 10 starts so far was at Ruakaka last August (1200m) for Cambridge trainer Shaun Ritchie. The filly has not raced since New Year's Day at Hastings. Her stablemate Infared (by Sun Ruler), another three-year-old filly, ran 800m in 52 even, the last 600 in 38.6, and was unplaced in her two starts last January. Maiden three-year-old gelding Clownin Around (by Sacred Falls), covered 800m in 52.6, the last 600 in 38.9, and un-raced former northerner Qiji Queen (by Reliable Man) took 52.8 and 38.7. They are both with Pickford as well. Maidens by Power and Per Incanto, both trained by Anne Herbert, were paired over 800m in 53.7, the last 600 in 38.8, and That's Funny went alone in 54.1 and 39.6. A Pickford-trained Jimmy Choux gelding sprinted 600m in 39.7, and stablemate Irish Heart (by O'Reilly) went 800m in 54.9, the last 600 in 40.2. She is a four-year-old maiden, formerly trained in the north. A Power gelding trained by Pickford ran 600m in 42.4. On the No 1 grass, Matthew Eales-trained maiden five-year-old Empower (by No Excuse Needed) sprinted 600m in 37.8, and stablemates Derecho and Showshanelle went together in 39.6. Veteran gelding The Great Guru, who will no doubt be seen over jumps when racing resumes next month, ran 800m in 53.4, the last 600 in 39.2. Former smart two-year-old Atenartin, who won the (Listed) Ryder Stakes in 2018, and a Zed maiden sprinted 600m in 41.8. They are with Matthew Eales.
