Quiet start for Gingernuts
August 3, 2017 Gingernuts Trish Dunell Photography

Gingernuts’ spring preparation was furthered at Te Teko on Tuesday with the dual Group One winner enjoying a quiet 1000m trial.

“He had a nice day out and he’s a lot bigger this year,” said Jamie Richards, who trains in partnership with Stephen Autridge. “He’ll probably trial again and kick off in the Tarzino Trophy at Hawke’s Bay.

“He’ll be entered for the Caulfield and Melbourne Cups and whether he runs on the last two days at Hawke’s Bay before he goes we’re not sure just yet.”

Gingernuts’ younger brother Griffin, the winner of his only start last season, also stretched his legs in a 1000m heat. “He just ran home under his own steam and we’re happy with him,” Richards said.

In early betting markets for the Caulfield Cup Gingernuts is $17. Check out the latest Caulfield Cup betting markets.
