Aerovelocity (NZ, G7, Bay)

“He’s done very well, nothing fancy, but he’s eating well—quite often they don’t feed as well you know—but he’s eaten the same as he does in Hong Kong, so that’s a big help. He’s didn’t do a fast gallop yesterday—just 30.28 (over 800m), the same as usual—he was already very fit and giving me the signs that he should be able to run his best. But you know, when they come overseas they either do it (run a fantastic race) or they don’t, no in-between. (Regarding the barrier draw) If it rains, you’re better off drawing wide, who knows. We’ll take just whatever draw we take. You’d like to pick 5, 6 or 7, between 5 and 10—I’m not familiar with the pattern of racing here but you do have to use a bit more engine to get across from a wide draw. Anyway I’ll be talking to Zachary because that’s the jockey’s job.”
