EXCITING youngster Cat King Cole will be given a short break before embarking on another feature campaign.
Successful in Saturday night’s Australian Pacing Gold Bullion Final at Albion Park, Cat King Cole is being freshened ahead of tackling another APG Sales Series.
For graduates of APG’s Brisbane Sale, the futurity culminates in a $100,550 Final at Albion Park on August 14.
“She’ll have a bit of time off now,” trainer Darren Weeks said. “She has done a tremendous job so far and we believe she can keep getting better as she goes along.
“I rate her as good as anything I have trained and think he can develop into something pretty special.
“After a break I’ll get her ready for the APG Sales race later in the year.”
An odds-on favourite during her latest appearance, Cat King Cole gave punter no reason for concern as she turned the Group Two into a one-act affair.
With Weeks’ partner Kylie Rasmussen in the cart, Cat King Cole worked to the lead from barrier six as the remainder of the 1660-metre trip became a formality.
Never fully extended, the daughter of Hurrikane Kingcole cruised to a commanding 30-metre win from Blackjack Shaz, with Harley Blue two-and-a-half metres away third.
Rating 1:57.2, Cat King Cole extended her record to three wins from four starts.
“Once she got to the front she did it as easily as she pleased,” Weeks said. “She had plenty up her sleeve at the finish and could have gone a lot quicker if needed.”
