Gogo Grace kicks off Adelaide trainer Leon Macdonald’s Tasmanian raid at Hobart

Apr 17, 2018

HALL Of Fame trainer Leon Macdonald will launch his Tasmanian Summer Racing Carnival assault when Gogo Grace heads to Hobart on Friday night.

The talented four-year-old will tackle the $150,000 Group 3 Bow Mistress Trophy (1200m) with top Victorian jockey Dean Yendall booked to ride.

Macdonald and co-trainer Andrew Gluyas opted to give Gogo Grace a quiet time between runs after an eye-catching effort at Flemington over 1400m on January 13.

“I wanted her nice and fresh,’’ Macdonald said.

“She ran a 1500m here and then a 1400m at Flemington, so I wanted to keep her nice and sharp.

“She’s done very well, travelled over there and all the reports are good from Seven Mile Beach.’’

Macdonald also has his sights on Sunday’s $250,000 Group 3 Hobart Cup (2400m) with smart staying mare Pretty Punk.
