In next month’s highly anticipated Group 1 Black Caviar Lightning Stakes (1000m) at Flemington, Jamie Kah is set to partner I Am Unstoppable.
The star jockey partnered with the three-year-old during a jump-out at Cranbourne on Monday morning.
The colt, a notable performer as the Group 1 Coolmore Stud Stakes (1200m) runner-up, showcased his form in an impressive 850-metre trial on the inner grass track.
Co-trainer Lloyd Kennewell, in partnership with Lucy Yeomans, expressed satisfaction with the performance.
“He was really good,” Kennewell stated to Racing.com.
“He was out for his first trial for the preparation. He’s going to have another one, but he was terrific. That was Jamie’s first sit on him, and she was extremely happy.”
Kah is slated to ride I Am Unstoppable in the Lightning Stakes and the subsequent Newmarket race. Kennewell affirmed the colt’s excellent condition post-spell and outlined the plan for this preperation.
“He’s come back in great order from his spell, and this morning was the first of two trials – the second one comes in two weeks – to have him ready for the Lightning.”
“The Lightning’s a good race to kick off in, and while it’s going to be a super-strong race, he’s a very good colt and a valuable colt who deserves to take his place.”
“The Lightning will battle-harden him for the Newmarket, where he’ll come in well at the weights.”
