Aardiebytheseaside looking to continue strong southern form
By Joshua Smith, Harness News Desk
Aardiebytheseaside has been flying since she transferred to Stonewall Stud’s southern base and they are hoping she can continue that form at Addington Raceway on Thursday.
She has won both of her southern outings in comfortable fashion, with stable driver Tim Williams having the luxury of not having to activate the removable deafeners in either race.
The Group Two performer has drawn seven in the Dunstan Horsefeeds Sires’ Stakes Fillies (Heat 2) Mobile Pace (1980m), just inside Treacherous Gall, a filly co-trainer Amanda Telfer has a lot of respect for.
“Her first two runs since she has come down from up north have been really good. She just seems to have strengthened up a bit,” said Telfer, who trains in partnership with her brother Steve.
“She has raced most of them before. I thought Treacherous Gall was very good last start (when third) and she was fresh-up. It will be interesting to see what they do with her this week.
“Aardiebytheseaside is working well and is ready to go.”
Stablemate Alta Meteor will be out to extend his winning streak to four in the Woodlands Stud Sires’ Stakes 2YO (Heat 3) Mobile Pace (1980m) but will have to overcome his outside draw on the second line.
“He has been going well but he has got a bit of an awkward draw,” Telfer said.
“He has done everything we have asked of him. He has got the Harness Millions next week. We are just hoping to get a cart into it and see what happens.”
The stable has also drawn awkwardly with Obsession in the Nevele R 3YO Fillies Series No.44 (Heat 5) Mobile Pace (1980m), although there is a silver lining.
“She doesn’t have a great draw (8) but her other main danger doesn’t either. Queen Of Diamonds has drawn the inside of the second row,” Telfer said.
“She has been going well in that grade and we will look to drive her positively.”
