$1.7 million MM’S purchase will undertake his first official trial at Pakenham today
The Lloyd Kennewell-trained Strategy, an unraced son of I Am Invincible (Invincible Spirit) who topped last year’s Magic Millions Gold Coast Yearling Sale when realising $1.7 million, will undertake his first official trial at Pakenham today. “Last preparation he had a jumpout or two and showed really good speed but mentally he just wasn’t ready for it all he just wanted to overdo it and run through the bridle,” Kennewell told Racing.com. “We put him away knowing he wasn’t a pre-Christmas two-year-old. He has done a bit of dressage and had a bit of re-mouthing and we have worked hard at getting his head right so he is ready to go this preparation.
He is very fast, he has plenty of speed, he jumps the lids (barriers) really quickly and does everything right in that way. Mentally we are just trying to get him to do things the other way – to get him to relax and switch off.” Kennewell suggested Strategy could debut in a Moonee Valley maiden on January 24 or in the Blue Diamond Preview (Listed, 1000m) (C&G) at Caulfield the following day.
