Visiting Trainer Confident His Stats Stack Up At Wagga (Monday)

Wangaratta trainer Daniel McCarthy has the right horse power to make an impact again at Wagga on Monday as he looks to continue his best season on record.

McCarthy’s figures tell the story of the past 11 months as he looks to add to his tally with Kabrocco and Newrons.

He has a high opinion of both of his horses believing they will end up in better class races.

Newrons has been a work in progress making a successful return after bowing a tendon to win first-up at Corowa in maiden class on June 13.

The four-year-old hadn’t raced for 18 month and before that and had a year between a trial and his race debut.

“We gave him a second chance and he has been through the same drills as all of my horses that have had injuries,” he said.

“He has come back and won first-up and is a really nice horse with a bright future.

“I would normally race him with a bigger weight against his own grade, but in his case I think he will get there and further.

“He is a 54 rated horse in a 65 benchmark, but that doesn’t worry me with him.” Newrons has drawn perfectly in barrier three with Amanda Masters in the saddle.

Meanwhile, Kabrocco has already won three consecutive races at Wangaratta this year and will resume from a freshen up in the Southwest Stockfeeds Wagga Winter Hcp (1000m).

The three-year-old has won four of his eight starts and will be first-up for six weeks but has the benefit of a strong second in a trial behind stable mate Ashlor at Corowa.

Kabrocco is raced by a large syndicate which includes Pat Dowling and Andy Haring who race Newrons with McCarthy.

“The best is still ahead of him, but in 12 months time he will be a genuine city class horse,” McCarthy suggested.

Outside of Wangaratta, McCarthy’s career statistics show that Wagga is his most successful track with nine winners from his past 45 starters.

He has had 20 winners and 22 place getters from his past 100 starters and is on target to have his best season when it closes in late July.

McCarthy said he had a soft spot for Wagga with many of his better horses racing there at some stage.

“Not a lot of my horses race the NSW way of going, but if they do I like to take them to Wagga because it’s a track that gives them every chance from back in the field or on the pace,” he said.
