Still More To Come From Arbeitsam

By Brad Gray At Rosehill Gardens

Just how good is Arbeitsam? Despite smashing the 1800m class record at Rosehill Gardens, Tommy Berry revealed that he still never got to the bottom of the four-year-old.

“Coming down the straight I pressed him a fair way out wondering when I was going to find the top of him but I never did. He still kept picking up to the line, so felt like he has more in store,” Berry said.

“Gai has stepped him up in trip, dropped him back. She has broken a few rules but still won races.”

Berry, who leaves for Hong Kong Sunday week, was adamant that the Snitzel gelding would run 2000m without a problem but 2400m would be a whole new ball game.

“It’s funny, you’ll have a horse that runs a strong 1800m where 2000m is not a problem but 2400m is a another massive step. A horse with a turn of foot like him, there’s a good chance he wouldn’t run it.”

Co-trainer Adrian Bott said Arbeitsam has earned a cracked at black type now with the Listed Rowley Mile at Hawkesbury and the Listed Premier’s Cup over 1900m back at Rosehill his two upcoming options.

“He is going through the grades nicely and there is certainly a lot more to come from him,” Bott said, echoing the thoughts of Berry.

“He is a versatile horse and being able to put himself on the speed the way he does and still produce a turn of foot at the end of it, makes our job easy to place him.

“He’s a very exciting horse that keeps improving.”
