[Video] Richard’s Command posts her first timed workout.
Hi everyone,

Only two weeks until the new racing season begins and the anticipation is really starting to build. A healthy number of Racing Club fans hit the tarmac on Sunday morning to watch some familiar faces with two-year-old, Richard’s Command taking center stage again. As the older horses put the finishing touches on their spring training, our juvenile continued her education, this week combining some previous lessons – working two furlongs from the starting gate. Despite having to deal with standing start, she replicated last week’s time of 24.80 under jockey Alex Marti and after finishing her work galloped out with plenty of energy left. Also making Sunday morning appearances were Square Dancer and Fast Bid, who posted easy five furlong workouts.

Rounding out the rest of the barn, Warrior’s Promise had an un-timed workout on Thursday, looking in fine form on the outside of a workmate (a video link is further down in this newsletter) and Marshall Swindle, who tackled five furlongs for the second time this off-season on Friday, logging a 1:02.20 workout.

Square Dancer inspects his adoring Racing Club subjects while warming up for his workout.

For those of who who are not already aware, when not at Hastings you can bet online via Just in time for the new Hastings season they are running a $100 promotion (which expires at the end of June!), so with “behind closed doors” racing coming up it would be a great time to take advantage of this, if you haven’t already done so. Just click on the link above or the image below.


Just a reminder, if you haven’t got your registration form and payment for the new season can you please get back to us as soon as possible so we can get you all setup before opening day. Just drop us an email at and we’ll help you through the process.

Only 15 days left to go until Hastings 2020!
