Volkstok'n'barrell targets Tauranga

27 Oct 2016

Tavistock gelding Volkstok'n'barrell is in prime condition in the countdown to his return to racing.

The multiple Group One winner is likely to resume in the Gr.2 Preston Rowe Patterson, Property Brokers Tauranga Stakes on November 12.

"It's hard to place a weight-for-age horse like him," said Donna Logan, who trains in partnership Chris Gibbs. "He'd be getting far too much weight in handicaps here."

Volkstok'n'barrell hasn't raced since he placed in two of his four appearances during the Queensland winter carnival and he showed he had come back well with a lively trial win on his home track at Ruakaka earlier this month.
