Tavistock gelding chases Zabeel glory

13 Dec 2017

Volkstok’n’barrell will trim down for a Group One assignment with an exhibition gallop this weekend.

“He’s packed on the beef so we’ll take him to Ellerslie on Sunday, it will do him good to have another look around,” co-trainer Chris Gibbs said.

A last-start third in the Gr.3 Eagle Technology Stakes (1600m), Volkstok’n’barrell has been set for the Gr.1 Zabeel Classic (2000m) at Ellerslie on Boxing Day.

He finished runner-up to Consensus in the weight-for-age feature last year. - NZ Racing Desk
