Nobody is hitting the panic button at Raboki Farm.
Stable star Terror Time was a scratching last night (Saturday) after a stable mishap but the boutique stable followed the rule of prevention is better than cure.
The Shannon Price trainee done himself some mischief in his stable which left him a little sore and sorry but no serious damage was caused.
“He’s feeling really well presently and just got a little excited and jumped on himself, it’s nothing major and we acted on the side of caution because we have always put him first before any race.” Co-trainer Scott Miller said.
The Gr.1 winner is racing in terrific form this season highlighted by his crushing last start victory in the $20,000 Autumn Championship Final at Albion Park on March 8.
And connections are now giving serious consideration to a possible Sydney campaign in the coming months.
“We’ve definitely spoken about it but we’ll just wait and see at this stage, maybe we’ll just work him through his grades here locally before we go anywhere.
“Under the new handicapping structure here in Queensland, it’s probably better that we wait and get through our grades here before we go to Sydney. He should be assessed on a pretty good mark when we head south.
“He’s a very strong horse and that hard style racing at Menangle should suit him, we were very proud of his last start effort and he beat a quality field running good time.”
Meanwhile, the richly talented Caesars Folly continues to make big inroads as he prepares for a racetrack return.
The Christian Cullen gelding has not raced since winning at Albion Park back in February last year when he injured his offside front tendon.
“Everything is coming along really at this point but we still have a fair way to go before he heads back to the trial track. We’re hopefully looking at a return in May all going to plan.
“The leg actually looks pretty good and the latest scan was positive so we will just keep pushing ahead but keep in mind, he will return on a tight mark so it won’t be easy and there are no guarantees after an injury like this.
“We took him to Albion Park today (Sunday) and we just rolled along at a steady tempo and it was pleasing the way he came through the workout but we will take him back during the week for a more serious hit-out.”
Caesars Folly is the winner of 24 races while banking more than $244,000.
