Laming Heads To Bega With Tales To Tell

Victorian trainer Richard Laming is hoping lessons learned from last year can help drive him to feature race success at the Sapphire Coast carnival this weekend.

Laming will saddle up as may as ten runners including strong chances in the Bega Sprint and Cup.

He is likely to only start one runner in each naming Abohar and Folk Tales as definite runners even though he has three acceptances in the two feature events.

Laming won’t be lacking anything in horse power, transporting his runners the six hours from his base at Cranbourne today to ensure they are ready to go.

Last year, Laming started two horses placing with both and this time he has brought extra ammunition for a number of reasons.

“It’s a six-hour trip so it’s a fair way but we are use to travelling a lot,” Richard Laming said.

“One of my main clients Ty Simpson lives in Merimbula and we have a lot of owners in the area and they will have horses in over the weekend.

“We are also hosting a dinner for about 90 of our owners and making a weekend of it.”

Laming said another reason for making the trip was because the track played fairly and the races offered strong prize money for the right class of horses he is starting.

As for winning a race or two, Laming hopes the numbers can stack up in his favour.

“Folk Tales is in a winnable race and was a bit stiff not to win last start. Meridian Star is in good form and just got beat by a handy horse in Adelaide last start,” he suggested.

“He should lead and give them something to chase for a long way.”

Laming’s last 50 starters have produced 11 winners including two on metropolitan tracks.

He is yet to have his first winner at the Sapphire Coast but by the end of the carnival that could easily change as he has several well fancied runners in betting markets.
