Father and son to go head to head at Gunnedah

THE father and son duo of Mark and Zach Hatch could have a friendly wager running between them today at Gunnedah’s Riverside Racecourse when they saddle up side-by-side starters Young America and Kenny Succeed respectively in the last.

Mark has engaged jockey Rachael Murray to ride last-start winner Young America, who has drawn barrier two, while son Zach will leg jockey Darren Jones onto his only starter at the meeting, Kenny Succeed.

They’ve drawn the rails (one) for the 1000m sprint in the Fiona’s Mini Buses Class One Handicap.

“I don’t know about a wager but there’ll certainly be a lot of stirring going on,” Mark joked.

And if the meeting had been some months earlier, Mark’s dad and Zach’s pop David Hatch, trainer and a long-time farrier around the racetracks, would have made up the third cog of the Hatch generation at Gunnedah today.

“Pop’s slowed up a bit now, doesn’t do as many meetings as he used to,” Zach said.

Mark will also saddle up Falvina (Greg Ryan) in the Widelandgroup南京夜网419论坛 Bad Boy Mowers Benchmark 50 Handicap.

So which of the Hatch representatives will finish in front at the post?

Three-year-old gelding Young America is a last-start winner, taking out his fourth career start in a Moree 950m maiden two weeks ago.

But four-year-old Kenny Succeed impressed in his debut with a five-length victory in a Tamworth 1000m maiden back in July.

Mark though considers his son’s “probably” the better chance of the two.

“He’s a handy little galloper with good early speed so will probably lead,” he said.

“My bloke could be heading to the paddock after the race. We’ll see how he pulls up.’

Zach purchased Kenny Succeed off a mate who was heading to America – “just broken, and at the right price.

“He trialled, went out, then came back and won his first race,” he said.

“He was unfit first up, then went to Walcha but had a bit of a mishap in the barrier, so didn’t start.

“He’s pulled up well and is working nicely.

“Darren’s been riding him trackwork so knows him pretty well.”

Falvina, who will be given every chance by jockey Greg Ryan, has been “racing well without any luck”.

“He raced out of his class at Quirindi, only beaten five lengths, and didn’t really get a clear run at Armidale the start before,” Mark said.

“It’ll depend on what sort of luck he gets in the running.”
