Athletica Back in Action at Te Rapa20 Jul 2018
Talented three-year-old Athletica is set to resume in the Red Alert Taxis – Getting You Home Handicap at Te Rapa tomorrow for Andrew Campbell and looked to near his best form when trialling well at Te Awamutu recently.
The Tavistock gelding looked to be well above average when winning at his debut at Awapuni – and showed similar ability again when storming home in a Rating 75 race at Awapuni to go down narrowly – but has been plagued with minor setbacks since.
Bred on the very successful Tavistock/Zabeel cross - which has produced the stakes winners Werther, Tarzino, Hasselhoof, Pacorus, and Gobstopper – Athletica was a $150,000 purchase by Tommy Heptinstall and is raced by Tommy along with J A Barnao, T M Pivac, D R Platt, A Campbell, C V Barnao, C D Allison, N Cruickshank & Withonel Syndicate.
Vinnie Colgan will take the mount on Athletica tomorrow.« Back
