Robert and Luke Price will use the next season to lock in the processes at their Kembla Grange stables and hope the quality of their team will start to come through.
The Prices made the move in partnership and to Kembla last year and have been buying at the sales to build up the team but it is couple of older horse that will represent them on their home track today.
“We are into a routine and training at Kembla and it is a bit of advantage. A horse like Miss Demi Monde has come on in the stable and her first-up run was very good,” Luke Price said.
Miss Demi Monde is still a maiden after 11 starts but is a different horse after having a throat operation during a spell and Price believes she is a good chance stepping out to 1200m in the Jeff Penza Maiden Handicap.
“She has run some good races but the way she found the line last time is the way she has been on the training track,” Price said. “I think the extra trip will really suit her and she will be finding the line again.”
Price is even more confident with Lani Girl, which drops back from city grade to the the Gwenda Markwell Benchmark 65 Handicap to close the Kembla program.
“She has been run good race in town, even though she has been well beaten and we have found a nice race for her at the mile [1600m],” Price said. “I have been able to book Josh Adams, who is good form, and I’ll go to the race quietly confident.”
