Trying out Tarruji

Tarruji, one of the three new horses we bought in Newmarket at the July sales, will run in Deauville on Saturday, trying out a 1,500-meter claimer on the fibersand. He seems to have settled in well and certainly likes French cooking. His manger is always licked clean and he’s working well, so now he’ll get a chance to stretch out and show us what he can do.

Turfani, meanwhile, has an entry on Deauville’s fibersand next Wednesday; she works tomorrow and I’ll make a decision on whether or not to run after that.

The two other English newcomers, Blessing Belle and Derringbay, are following divergent paths. Belle is doing very well, and hopefully will be ready to race by mid-August. She had some back stiffness to work out, but seems on the right track now. Derringbay has soundness problems, unfortunately, and I’m not sure when – or if – he will be ready to try something. He may be looking for new employment, but I’ll wait until the end of August to decide. He got loose today and seemed sound as a bell when sprinting for home, but I think there are still issues to resolve. Meanwhile, all eyes on Tarruji…
