Ontrack’s promising mare Arctic Shock is ready to build on her sensational return to racing.
Arctic Shock resumed at Bendigo at the end of March and ran a bottler, steaming home to be beaten in a photo finish after racing three wide for most of the race.
That was her first race since scoring an impressive win at Moonee Valley last November in the hands of Craig Williams.
The daughter of Shocking is poised to return to winning form in the $60,000 Neds Handicap over 1400 metres at Caulfield tomorrow.
Purchased out of the 2017 New Zealand Bloodstock Premier Sale at Karaka by Ontrack’s Grant Morgan for $65,000, Arctic Shock has raced only 14 times for three wins and seven minor placings and $134,790 in earnings.
Arctic Shock was one of five yearling purchased by Ontrack at the sale and four of them have been winners, including the good sprinter Tavisan who has been a multiple placegetter in Listed company for Caulfield trainers Mick Price and Michael Kent Junior.
The future plans remain uncertain for Arctic Shock due to the current Covid 19 restrictions.
Originally her campaign was to include the Queensland Winter Carnival in a bid to win Black Type races.
However those plans are being reassessed because the carnival was originally scrapped before last Friday’s partial reinstatement of some feature racing.
