Green Zone chasing success
This Saturday, Perth Racecourse will welcome 10,000 racegoers for the second and final Saturday meeting of 2019. The sold-out Summer Carnival will feature an afternoon of thrilling racing followed by entertainment from Judge Jules LIVE.
With a competitive seven-race card, the capacity crowd have plenty to look forward to as Perth specialist, Green Zone is after more success at his favourite venue in the feature race on Perth’s sold out event on Saturday.
Six times a winner at the Scone track, Lisa Harrison’s Cumbrian raider faces a trio of quality rivals in the £30,000 Horizon Parking Stone Of Destiny Handicap Hurdle.
Harrison said: “He obviously loves the track and he has won on soft ground as well. He seems to be holding his form pretty well and he stays a bit further than this two miles - he’s been a real star for us and this is a great prize to aim for.”
The opposition to Green Zone are Nayati, trained by Donald McCain, Sam Twiston-Davies ridden Chef De Troupe and Oskemen partnered by four-time champion Richard Johnson.
Johnson has the first of his five booked rides on Gordon Elliott-trained Dandy Sue in the Angels’ Share Glass & Whisky Specialists Maiden Hurdle.
Amalfi Doug, trained by Keith Dalgleish and twice a winner over hurdles plus a two-time runner-up over fences on his last four starts at Perth, shoulders top-weight in the SPM Scotland Novices’ Handicap Chase.
Following recent heavy rainfall, all racegoers are encouraged to dress for the weather on the day.
Note - a precautionary inspection of the track will be held at 8am on Saturday morning. This event is completely sold out and no tickets will be available on the day.
