Guthman-Chester shines at the Gold Coast
Lightly raced five year-old Senrima Tide has strung together back to back victories thanks to another polished display by underrated young Gold Coast jockey Jag Guthmann-Chester.
Ontrack Thoroughbred’s Grant Morgan was quick to heap praise on the talented young rider.
“We are very fortunate to be able to use Jag here at the Gold Coast. I think he is very underrated,” said Morgan.
“If he wanted too I’m certain he could become the dominant rider here at the Gold Coast and fill the void left by Dan Griffin.
“But he’s also got the talent to be successful in the City. But whilst he is available at the Gold Coast on a Saturday I think you would be mad not to book him.”
After scoring at his last two runs at the Gold Coast over 1400m, the son of Ocean Park has now won 4 of 18 starts.
Senrima Tide is prepared by John & Chris Meagher from their Eagle Farm stable which is managed by experienced horseman Andrew Kermond.
The slightly built Senrima Tide will now be rewarded with a short break in the paddock at Kilto Park.
“We’ve used Kilto to freshen horses before mid prep and it’s worked very well,” said Ontrack’s Grant Morgan.
“We achieved great results with Cymbalism who was a lightly framed mare that the stable turned around. Cymbalism concluded her career with a stakes placing before being sold for good money as a broodmare”
“He’s enjoying his racing now and full credit must go to Team Meagher for getting him back in form and feeling good,” said Morgan.
Ocean Park has gradually built up a strong foothold in the New Zealand stallion ranks since entering stud.
Standing at famed Kiwi nursery Waikato Stud, Ocean Park is the sire of Group 1 winners Kolding and Tofane, along with Group winners Oceanex, Another Dollar, Star of The Seas and Out of The Park.
Senrima Tide is a member of Ocean Park’s first crop which arrived in 2014.
