Twin Trainers Out To Maintain Record At Nowra (Sunday)

In racing parlance, twin sisters Emma and Lucy Longmire have got off to a “flying start”.

Racing under the banner of Twin Star Racing, the sisters have three acceptances at Nowra on Sunday but are likely to only start Thunder Road in the Hotondo South Coast Benchmark 60 (2200m).

The ladies joined forces recently and have had three winners and as many seconds from nine starters.

However, Emma said Thunder Road would be the only definite as they have tried to place their horses where they have the best chance of winning and gaining a return for their owners.

“We nominate and accept at a few places then select where to run and what race best suits the horse,” Emma said.

It has worked so far as the ladies set about maintaining their record but at the same time combining their work with motherhood at Goulburn.

“It is going better than expected. We have 15 horses in work and it’s very busy but when the horses are performing you don’t mind,” she added.

As for Thunder Road, Emma feels he is well placed to show up on the heavy track over the longer distance.

Bramwell is likely to be saved for a race at Kembla Grange while last start winner, Ribs, races at Goulburn on today.

“I also have Thunder Road nominated for the Wagga carnival next week but the heavy track at Nowra suits him better,” Emma said.

Thunder Road has had four runs back from a spell for one win and a second.

Recent winners Art of defence, Red Viking, Grasp and Little Miss Chelsy are all chances in an evenly graded race.

The scratching of Ribs from the GJ Gardner Homes Shoalhaven Class 1 (1200m) has taken out one of the main chances.

Ondo Pasa was an impressive last start winner and is likely to start as favourite while Our Rosemaree was impressive winning on debut at Canberra.
