Harness Racing: Savvy Bromac ready to fire

25 November 2021 19:46:57 GMTPlus11

Talented young driver Emily Suvaljko hopes to take advantage of the prized No. 1 barrier and attempt an all-the-way victory with Savvy Bromac at Gloucester Park on Friday night.

The four-year-old will contest the $125,000 Westral Mares Classic over 2536m and Suvaljko believes that the trip will suit her charge down to the ground.

Perfect barrier draw

So will the barrier draw and Suvaljko is hoping to put Savvy Bromac's natural gate speed to good use by blowing away the rest of the field.

The New Zealand-bred pacer disappointed in her last start when finishing three lengths behind the winner Born To Boogie.

After jumping from gate eight she was last at the bell before making a late dash for home and Suvaljko says that performance should be ignored.

"The distance should suit her, she's got good gate speed, so we should be able to hold up," Suvaljko said ahead of the race.
"And Nathan (trainer Nathan Turvey) thinks she is good enough to cop any pressure that comes her way.

"Disregard Savvy Bromac's eighth in the Norms Daughter Classic last Friday week when the race wasn't run to suit."

Balcatherine a danger

Born To Boogie will pose a threat once again and so will Balcatherine who is trained by the master himself Gary Hall snr and will be driven by son Gary Hall jnr.

Hall snr is confident his charge has what it takes to win the race for the second year running.

"She is the best mare and has the best driver," said Hall snr. "She is going better now than she was when she won this race 12 months ago. Her latest run was outstanding, and she has worked very well since."
