West Coast Resumes Steeplechasing Career with Win in Manawatu

Horse Racing News Sports News

Steeplechaser West Coast, a testament to resilience and determination, resumes his career with a resounding win in Manawatu. His unwavering goal is to clinch a third Grand National in winter, a feat that demands extensive travel. He marked his return by triumphing over Izymydaad at Woodville, his first start since emerging victorious at the Great Northern Steeples last year.

With a string of victories in the Koral Steeplechase, Hawke’s Bay Steeplechase, Wellington Steeplechase, and two Grand National Steeplechases, West Coast has left an indelible mark in the steeplechasing world. His triumphs have practically guaranteed victory at every post since then, a testament to his exceptional talent and skill.

Trainer Mark Oulaghan has stated that he will most certainly pursue a third Grand National—but not in this nation—now that he has won eight of eleven races over the larger fences, establishing him as a modern-day great.

After West Coast’s Win in Manawatu

West Coast Resumes Steeplechasing Career with Win in ManawatuAccording to pay per head reviews and news sites, West Coast aims to win the Australian Grand National in August. Winning the race would bring lots of money. Aside from the Steeples, Oulaghan won the Woodville-Pahiatua Cup with Pinkerton and the Awapuni Hurdle with Berry The Cash.

Berry The Cash was the winner of the Grand National Hurdles last season. Thus, he could defend the title when he returns to Riccarton. However, Oulaghan said Pinkerton was too small to join his stable’s steeplechasers.

Te Kahu, the 2021 Grand National Steeples winner, was another of yesterday’s jumping action highlights. In his first race in over 2.5 years, he ran a stunning second in the maiden hurdle, adding much-needed energy to the otherwise lackluster local jumping scene.

Molly Bloom Camp Not Panicking Yet

Her camp remains calm despite Molly Bloom’s failure to place at Doomben on Saturday. Molly Bloom won the NZ 1000 Guineas. While she was wide for most of the 2000-meter race, Molly Bloom’s brilliant dash appeared dimmed, and she finished a solid sixth in the A$300,000 fillies event.

Andrew Scott, Molly Bloom’s co-trainer, notes that although the track conditions were worse than anticipated following race day rain, he and his training partner Lance O’Sullivan are optimistic that better times are ahead.

After her performance, Molly Bloom was no longer considered a favorite for the 2200m Oaks at Eagle Farm on June 8. Her odds dropped to $5.50, while Scarlet Oak won on Saturday and is now the new favorite at $3.20.

Scarlet Oak was bought out of Ken and Bev Kelso’s stable after her March debut victory at Matamata. In her short time in Australia, she has already made a tremendous impact with three runs.

Trip to Australia

Mary Shan and Devastate, both horses trained by Andrew Forsman, won at Pukekohe on Saturday to ride side by side in Australia. The black-type gallopers carried on as usual despite the Heavy 10 conditions, giving their Cambridge trainer five victories in three days and a triple for the day.

It won’t be easy to accumulate Australian black-type before Mary Shan reaches four. Still, her ability to tolerate the highly wet track provides Forsman choices in the coming weeks in either Melbourne or Brisbane.

Aside from the 3 major horse racing events for bettors, betting on steeplechase races can also be exciting. In addition, you can open a racebook to earn money from horse races.
