Jolly Jumper returns to Matt Machine
In autumn, trained by Maciej Jodłowski, Matt Machine and Jolly Jumper fought for victory in the race for the Mokotów Award. Ultimately, Matt Machine won the title of the winter favorite at the Derby, who on Saturday competed as a strong favorite in the race for the Westminster Ruler Award. He also accelerated amazingly on the straight under Dastan Sabatbekov, overtook Sirius in the lead and slightly jumped away from his rivals. Kaneshya also stayed in the lead, but Jolly Jumper galloped better. Gniadosz accelerated less dynamically than Matt Machine, but presented long and as it turned out effective, finish. It seemed that he would not make it, meanwhile, he stretched himself brilliantly in the crosshair and defeated the favorite, at the same time rematching him for a slight defeat at the age of two.
The trainer Maciej Jodłowski certainly had a lot of joy, who perfectly prepared the form of both horses at the beginning of this season. The owners of the Irish breeding of the winner are Adam Gawryszewski, Zygmunt Sobolewski and Stanisław Wiśniewski. Jolly Jumper rises higher and higher in the hierarchy of the year class and is already one of the main candidates for success in the Derby.
Matt Machine has confirmed that he is a high-class millionaire. El Corazone could be liked, perfectly prepared by Wiaczesław Szymczuk and led by Karolina Kamińska. Kaneshya’s race was not quite successful, with fourth place being a bit disappointing.
Jenny of Success beats the leader of the yearbook
The race for the Westminster Spring Award, which was the first classic of the season, was very interesting. Experienced Wiaczesław Szymczuk made a great move on the Jenny of Success he was training. The mare set a strong pace and extended the rate. Moonu was strongly favored and invincible at the age of two. Jenny of Success kept her advantage on the straight, and Moonu defended herself against her rivals. Towards the end of Moon, she began to approach the fleeing rival, but was unable to defeat her anymore. The next ones in the crosshair, Be My Girl and Iva Gray, showed great, finishing beautifully on the straight. The third one was the less experienced one – Be My Girl, but Iva Gray interrupted the ending and after the protest the Technical Committee changed them in order.
Wiaczesław Szymczuk perfectly prepared Jenny of Success for a large group of owners, which are: M. and S. Borys, K. Kamińska, J. Kostera – Cybersecurity, M. Kostera, S. Skowrońska-Kostera, A. Tokarska-Sommer and W. Sommer.
In the context of distance races, both Moonu and Iva Gray made a good impression, while Jenny of Success and Be My Girl, at least on paper, look like great sprinter milers.
Timemaster starts a victorious march?
There was no repeat of a year ago in the race for the Golejewek Award, in which the excellent Timemaster did poorly. This time the audience’s favorite did not disappoint and won under Martin Srnec. After a calmer start, the leader of Ventura Kingdom picked up the pace. Tres Amour and Guitar Man also ran in the lead, but Timemaster galloped brilliantly on the straight. Gryphon followed. These two horses had a race, but in the end it was the five-year-old who passed the crosshair first. Other horses trained by Krzysztof Ziemiański also showed their best. Apart from Timemaster, Zanzily Passion (third) and Petit (fourth) were also in the lead. Anator was fifth, while the derby winner Guitar Man galloped harder on the straight and took a further position. The owners of Timemaster, for whom this is the twelfth victory in his career, are Niespodzianka and Marianna Surtel.
