Winton galloping trials
Jimmy, who won at the Winton galloping trials today, might develop into a southern guineas contender.
Tapanui trainers Nikki and Barrie Blatch have a good opinion of the 3-year-old son of Cecconi and Hit The Target.
"Our intentions are the guineas races, if he steps up to where we think he’ll go,'' Nikki said.
Jimmy could begin his racing career at Ascot Park on November 1.
