Prime Power - Looks primed for a big season
Prime Power - Looks primed for a big season

The outstanding son of Monarchy, Prime Power is due back at the workouts this weekend as he prepares for a season debut at Alexandra Park later in October or early November.

The winner of eleven of twenty five starts to date, Prime Power has looked a real star in the making at times but after a brilliant start to his four year old season last year, his form fell away.

Even though he ran a close third in the Harness Jewels at Cambridge in late May, Prime Power appeared to be short of his best.

Trainer/driver Todd Mitchell is contented with his stable star as he prepares to take Prime Power to the workouts this weekend.

" I am much happier with him than I was towards the end of his last campaign.

He wasn't happy in himself and it showed on the track.

A decent break and he has come back a much happier horse and much more like his old self" he said

After the disappointing end to the last campaign, a decent break was what was needed but that meant that Prime Power was never going to be ready in time for Cup week at Addington.

Todd thought he would have been cutting it really fine to have Prime Power ready for the Dominion Handicap. 

" I could have tried to rush his preparation to get him ready but with such a big season in front of him  it made more sense to skip Cup week and set him for the Xmas carnival at Alexandra Park.

He looks and feels a lot stronger this time in and his work leading into this week's workout has been super and I think he could be in for a big year" he said.

A winner of the 3 year Harness Jewels in 1:56.5, Prime Power has the gate speed and manners to be a major player where ever he lines up this season on both sides of the Tasman.
