Gollan’s hot streak to continue

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Tony Gollan is one of our mates here at brissyraces.com.au and as usual he is good enough to update us with his stable news/runners while he keeps knocking up winners!

He is on top of the premiership table and has around 17 metropolitan winners already this season. A couple added to the tally over the weekend including the very impressive Too Many Reds.

The young trainer originally from Toowoomba is best known for his feats with half-brothers Temple Of Boom and Spirit Of Boom who are both campaigning in Melbourne this spring. Spirit Of Boom is entered this week and Tony is wrapped with the horse this time in work. “Both horses galloped strongly at Flemington this morning and I’m very happy with them. Temple will trial Friday morning heading to the Schillaci and Spirit will take his place (in the Group 2 Gilgai) at Flemington Saturday. Spirit Of Boom has been luckless in the top grade and hopefully we can turn that around on Saturday and we couldn’t be happier with where we have got him.” Gollan said.

It is interesting to note that Tony feels Spirit Of Boom peaks around this run each prep and he does expect the horse to improve on his first two (excellent) runs this prep. Once the horse peaks Gollan said he can keep him at that level. This is of course the race that Temple Of Boom won last year.

The white hot stable has also been given classy North Queenslander Jabiru Dreaming to train and they feel everything points to him being hard to beat Saturday. They are likely to claim with an apprentice and it was seven weeks between runs last start.

I had to ask about Silver Command who was very game in defeat last start. Tony was pleased with the effort but has opted for three weeks between runs as the hard tracks haven’t really suited.

Trakstar is one of the most promising horses in the stable and he has been sent to the paddock after a successful preparation. He obviously has a bright future and will continue to improve with maturity.

This stable has wings on their horses at present and everything they send out should be respected. I have been talking Tony up for a long time but he continues to surprise me week after week with his success. It just shows where hard work can get you!

Good luck to Tony and the crew this weekend in the Gilgai!
