Single Gaze Spelled — Nick Olive’s Youngsters Please
Group 1 winning mare Single Gaze has a minor injury and has gone to the spelling paddock and will be back for the autumn.
Canberra trainer Nick Olive says Single Gaze developed some soreness below the knee as she prepared for a Melbourne Spring campaign.
“We sent her up to Randwick for a veterinary check and they said we could keep going with her.
However, it was clear she wasn’t 100% so we decided to spell her.
“And if you are going to be racing in the top grade you have to be 100%.”
Olive was delighted with the wins of his two 3yr olds Cool In Black and Fox Tales on the heavy track at Canberra last Friday.
“Cool In Black is starting to put it together but is still a bit new and he’ll either go back to Canberra next week or the Highway Handicap the day after.
“I haven’t decided with Fox Tales. I’d like to take him to Sydney mid-week but there’s nothing at the moment that fits in.
“He’s pulled up good too and has a lot of up-side. He has a fair bit of ability that horse.”
Olive is aiming high with Let It Roll — a 2yo colt by Not A Single Doubt — who impressed his first time out at Friday’s Canberra trial — well-held against older horses.
“He went really nicely and is heading up to the Randwick trials on Monday.
“He’s got to go well up there obviously but he could be heading for the Breeders’ Plate”
