Streaming Live completes hat-trick at Young Quinn
By Jonny Turner
It doesn’t matter where, when, or who is driving, Streaming Live just keeps on winning.
The mare made it a hat-trick of wins and remained unbeaten in her new campaign when speeding to victory along the inner in race 5 at Young Quinn Raceway yesterday.
Streaming Live was brilliantly consistent last time in but was unable to break maidens in 11 starts.
But since returning to racing the mare has clearly taken her game to a new level under trainer Petra Luzumova’s care.
Luzumova puts the mare’s progress down her developing into a lean racing machine.
“She is loving it at the moment.”
“Last year when she started racing she always had a bit of condition on her and I was always trying to get the weight off her.”
“She shot up while she was out and she has come back in looking more like a racehorse.”
“I have managed to get the weight off her and she is looking great.”
Streaming Live has shown speed in her last two wins which have both coming via the passing lane.
Yesterday it was Kerryn Tomlinson who secured the mare a perfect run in the trail.
Before then it was Mark Purdon doing the steering at Oamaru and prior to that Brad Williamson piloted the four-year-old to her maiden victory at Wyndham.
“Three wins and three different drivers,” Luzumova said.
“They all say she is like driving a motorcar.”
Luzumova races Streaming Live with the Waitaki Whispering Pines Syndicate.
“They are mostly friends of ours from Kurow.”
“I think they are having a great time with the horse.”
Luzumova now plans to give Streaming Live a freshen up before attempting four wins in a row with the mare.
“She is going to have a week off to freshen up, then I will find another race for her.”
“She is still low in the ratings with the plenty free win today.”
Alongside Kerryn Tomlinson, Sarah O’Reilly and Tristan Larsen both clinched crucial penalty-free wins at Thursday’s meeting.
Larsen and his boss Brett Gray combined for a winning double with Swedish Starlet and Peregrine.
