Robert and Luke Price are hoping this week has been the start of a turnaround for their Kembla Grange stable with winners at Nowra and Hawkesbury.
“We have been having a really lean trot and for Feisty Fox and Curta Princess to win picks you up a bit,” Robert Price said.
“We are hoping to continue that winning feeling at Kembla on Saturday. Winners can come in bunches."
The Prices will be hoping Lani Girl can return to the winner’s enclosure in the Gardiners Creek Benchmark 66 Handicap after talking the owners out of retiring the seven-year-old mare.
“I think every horse is entitled to a bad one here and there and she still has a win or two in her,” Price said.
"She was Luke's first horse when he started training and we would like to send her out a winner. We have dropped her back in grade from city class and I think we have found a good race for her.
"We are supposed to get a storm here overnight, which would be perfect because she likes a bit of give in the ground.”
The stable opens its day with Cuban Royale, which is a maiden after seven runs, in the Lilyvale Handicap.
“He is field-shy and when he gets behind horse he loses interest, like he did at Goulburn,” Price said. “We want to ride him positively and get out of trouble because he has a bit of talent and could be a sneaky chance if he gets it right.”
