Holmesville trainer Aaron Garaty headed to Brisbane on the weekend with a team of four horses and is hoping to bring home his share of the Queensland prize money. Garaty is expecting to be away for at least a fortnight and has set himself a couple of goals during his trip.

"The owner of The Puritan had paid up for the Seymour Nursery and it was always the plan to bring him up to Brisbane to give him a chance to qualify for the final," Garaty said.

"I've also brought Cold Kentucky Rain, Pearl Art and Mincarlie with me and I'm hoping Mincarlie can be competitive in the M0's in Brisbane because I have been really happy with her form in New South Wales and her run at Menangle in the Country Series Final behind Major Gambler was very solid."

Garaty is currently suspended from driving but has taken his partner Kylie Barnes with him and she will be doing the driving until at least May 21.

"I got 21 days at the end of April but Kylie has been doing a great job, the owners have plenty of confidence in her and she will be doing the driving."

"The horses are staying at Ricky Thurlow's, it is a little bit like a working holiday because we only have the four to look after up here whereas if I was at home I would be in charge of ten or twelve horses."

Cold Kentucky Rain won at Bankstown last week and has shown some consistent form since resuming from a short break.

"She's only had four starts back, she has won one and been placed twice so I can't ask much more of her at the moment."

"Pearl Art has run second at her past two, she just needs a little bit of luck in her races and I think she might be able to win one soon."
