She has put on some nice condition and we are very happy with the way she is coming along. She has been nominated for her debut run on 22 April 2019 and if all goes to plan she should run a nice race. The picture below is of her at work this morning.

Hollywood Thunder is coming along nicely and has strengthened up well over the past 4 weeks. She is on the far side in this clip, doing some steady work with a companion.

Her coat has turned now and she has started to progress nicely. We estimate a debut around the end of the first quarter of 2019.

December 15, 2018
She is settling well into her new surroundings and Gavin will be stepping up her work shortly. Her coat hasn’t quite turned yet, but as soon as it does, she will start to really run the corner.
