KENSA stamped herself as a hot youngster to watch out for in coming months after recording a dazzling 22.68 on debut at The Gardens on Saturday night.
Stepping from box one over the 400m sprint, the daughter of Spring Gun and Little Bit Fancy clocked a fast 10.98 first section before sprinting clear to score by seven-and-three-quarter lengths on the line.
The best of day performance delighted connections, with Syndicate Manager Tatum Osborne Young indicating Race A Chaser Syndications is expecting big things from the black bitch, affectionately known as ‘Coco’, in the future.
“Coco is exceptionally bred and she broke in sensationally last year so we have had a big opinion of her for quite a while,” Osborne Young said.
“It has taken her a while to make it to the track so it was terrific to see her go on with her early promise and win so convincingly.
“It is still early days but she appears to have above average ability so we are very excited to watch her develop over the next few months.”
Coco was purchased by Race A Chaser Syndications from the 2014 Richmond Riches Puppy Auction, making her eligible for the 2016 Richmond Riches Race series. The main event throughout that series will be held over the 535m trip in May and is worth a massive $100,000-to-the-winner.
Osborne Young said the series is a definite target for Kensa, which is currently being trained by Michael Manuel in the Hunter Valley.
“Coco proved she definitely has ability on Saturday night and now we will hopefully see her work towards the Richmond Riches series.
“It is a big jump up in distance, but her run home time was very strong and she still has plenty of time to build up over more ground ahead of the series.
“If she can keep producing the early pace she showed on Saturday and stretch her speed out over 500 I think she will be a big chance heading towards the Richmond Riches.
“Hopefully between now and then she can continue to develop as a racer and gain more experience which is sure to see her improve on the track.”
Shares are still available in Kensa for those who wish to be a part of the Race A Chaser team, with shares priced at $2,750 per 5%.
“I think the price is very reasonable given Coco’s ability and the fact that she is nominated for a $100,000 race in just two months time,” Osborne Young said.
“Unless there is a significant issue, such as a major vet bill, syndicate members will have no more to pay throughout her race career, with the nomination fees already paid up for her entry into the Richmond Riches Race series.
“A share in Coco’s syndicate is also sure to be valuable down the track, with each syndicate member also ensuring they are a part of any future litters she has once she heads to the breeding barn.
“It is also a very fun experience, giving people the opportunity to experience the excitement of owning a ready to race greyhound with proven ability.”
