Spring time in Melbourne and there is a feeling of excitement in the air as the Group races get into full swing and the quality horses hit the tracks.
This week the Group 1 Underwood Stakes at Caulfield is both fascinating and exciting with unbeaten returning mare Atlantic Jewel to take on Puissance de Lune, recent winner of the Group 3 PB Lawrence Stakes and slated last year by Glen Boss as the horse to beat for this year's Melbourne Cup.
Also nominated for the Group 1 Underwood Stakes are Melbourne Cup winner Green Moon, Oaks Winner Dear Demi, Grp 1 Makybe Diva Stakes Winner Foreteller, and the Chris Waller trained Hawkspur to name a few.
This week's assignments will include a trip to Traralgon with the Salanitri Stable on Tuesday, the barrier draw breakfast on Wednesday morning, the Group 1 Events Gala Launch on Wednesday evening and a visit to Ararat on Friday to see my filly, To Be Honest return to the track.
Hoping to get a visit to Balnarring beach on Thursday morning (weather depending) for a few more beach photos.
