Matamata Breeders’ Stakes winner Gold Fever will trial next month in preparation for her three-year-old debut.
“We’re extremely pleased with her at this early stage of her preparation,” said Stephen Autridge, who trains with Jamie Richards.
“She’s a lot stronger, grown a touch and mentally she has matured for the spell, because at two she could be on the toe and a bit of a tart around the stables and at the track.
“This time in she’s a lot better in all respects and we can only hope that it transpires into her race performances as a three-year-old.”
Autridge said Gold Fever is scheduled to trial at Te Rapa on August 15 with her first stakes assignment the Gr. 3 Hawke’s Bay Breeders’ Gold Trail Stakes at Hastings on September 23.
