Big weekend for Laing Racing
Mar 09, 2018
Laing Racing is in for a huge weekend at the track starting with the Group One Lexus Newmarket Handicap at Flemington tomorrow afternoon with outstanding mare Missrock and top sprinter Lord of The Sky lining up in this time honoured race.
Missrock was simply brilliant in defeat at her first start run back this preparation when a gallant third in the Group One Lighting Stakes to Redkirk Warrior and the daughter of Fastnet Rock only needs an ounce of luck to claim her first Group One victory.
Missrock will be ridden by top Tasmanian jockey in Craig Newitt who has already tasted success in the Newmarket with The Quarterback and the inform hoop will be 'ready to rock' on the mare.
The Laing stable have the evergreen and stable stalwart in Lord Of The Sky as a worthy back up runner in the Group One feature with the recent Standish Handicap winner drawing the poll in barrier one with top female rider Kathy O'Hara aboard.
Lord Of The Sky simply loves the straight course at Flemington and is going to run the race of his life tomorrow and can certainly bounce back from his Futurity Stakes run.
Its' UBET Adelaide Cup day this Monday and Laing Racing again will be at the fore with two runners in Double Bluff and Cuban Fighter.
Apart from his last unplaced run at Flemington Double Bluff has been in top form winning at Caulfield three starts ago and the Listed Geoff Torney Cup at Moonee Valley two starts ago.
Double Bluff will be ridden by the in form Mark Zahra and only has to go one better than last year to claim victory.
Cuban Fighter certainly looks a sneaky each way chance in Monday's feature down on the minimum as the horse was a gutsy win at Moonee Valley two starts and he will run the 3200m right out.
In other stable news Laing Racing bought a lovely colt at this weeks Melbourne Premier Yearling Sale by Rubick from the Flying Spur mare in Miss Provocative.

In closing Rob bought a lovely staying colt by the sire he has had a huge amount of success with in Pentire, out of the three time city wining Fusaichi Pegasus mare in Shanpanichi.
