AWAPUNI TRACKWORK Tuesday, June 23 By RON GURNEY With jump-outs scheduled for Foxton later in the day, galloping was at a minimum at Awapuni this morning. Fast work was held on the No 1 grass (slow) and on the plough (good). Maiden filly Bella Sorella and six-year-old gelding mare Keep It Savvy, both trained by Lisa Latta, used the No 1 grass and gathered speed from the 1000m mark to come their final 800m in 50.3, the last 600 in 37.1. Bella Sorella (by Darci Brahma) has had only four starts, but finished third second-up at Tauherenikau in March, just before the country went into Covid-19 lockdown. She is down to resume in a maiden 1200m at Wanganui on Thursday. Keep It Savvy was in good form during the late spring and early summer months, but has not raced since Marton Cup day (4th) in early January. Both horses have come to hand well. Showshanelle (by Showcasing), a likely race rival for Bella Sorella on Thursday, worked alone over 800m in 54.8, the last 600 in 39 even. Trained by Matthew Eales, Showshanelle has had only two race-day starts, finishing second on debut at Wanganui (1200m) in the spring. On the plough, two-year-old filly Bee Sting (by Vespa) was too quick for a Howbaddouwantit filly over 600m in 37.1. Bee Sting is an unraced half-sister to former stablemate Heni. Master Fin, in an open entry highweight (1600m) at Wanganui on Thursday, was timed 1000m in 1.11.2, the last 600 in 41.7, while two Mongolian Khan fillies trained by Lisa Latta sprinted 600m in 41.2. La Jungles, another heading to Wanganui (open highweight 2060m) had his trainer Stephen Beaston aboard when working post-to-post (1400m), being timed the final 1000m in 1.13.1, the last 600 in 43 even.
