Kuro Aiming For A 'Gold Rush' First Up



Veteran sprinter Kuro (Denman x Distinctive Lass) will represent the team at Hawkesbury's stand alone meeting on Saturday in the Gold Rush sprint race. Coming off one barrier trial, Kuro is first-up in Listed company over 1100m in a field of 13 runners. In-form hoop Tye Angland, who notched up his 100th win for the season on ANZAC Day has stuck with Kuro following his fresh trial last Monday at Randwick.

Kuro- now a rising 7 year old and having his 35th career start, has drawn barrier 4 and looks to have found a firm surface with no rain expected at Hawkesbury leading up to Saturday's meeting. The race is filled with many chances, especially those who are on the minimum of 53 kilos including the Hawkes trained Glenall (Brenton Avdulla) and the team Snowden trained Spending To Win (Rachel King).

Interestingly, Kuro has a pretty good record at Hawkesbury- he won on debut there for John O'Shea in 2014 and returned with a third placeing in the Hawkesbury Gold Rush in 2016, beaten just 0.7L lumping 61kg's. Kuro maps to do no work and we're hopeful he'll be right there when the whips are cracking!

Best of Luck to his owners.
