Pride Has Faith In Terravista

Tuesday, 16th February 2016

Trainer Joe Pride is confident he has stable star Terravista ready to fire in Saturday's Gr1 Black Caviar Lightning Stakes (1000m) at Flemington, reports Racing.com. The 2014 Gr1 Darley Classic winner is one of 15 nominations for the $750,000 sprint feature that will also see the return of high profile gallopers Delectation, Japonisme and Exosphere. "He's right up there with those sort of horses," Pride said. "We just need him to perform at the level he's shown he can in the past and he's given every indication that he'll be able to do that this week." He added: "I'm expecting a small field and with his good turn of foot that should help him." Pride has a three-race autumn campaign planned for Terravista, beginning with the Gr1 Lightning and Gr1 Newmarket Handicap in Melbourne, and concluding with the Gr1 TJ Smith Stakes in Sydney. "It fits into his program a little better in that I want him to peak on TJ Smith Stakes day," Pride said. "There's not really a lot of movement in his program because being a Group 1 horse, there's not many races they can run him." He added: "He's had the one trial, but for 1000 metres I think that's all he'd need. I'm very happy with him."
