Hungarian import THUNDER TEDDINGTON has his eyes firmly set on the $200,000 Pakenham Cup on 3 December. After an excellent run at Flemington on Stakes Day when he ran the fastest last 200m split, the son of Hailing will go straight into the Cup without another run. 

"We tossed up with the idea of running him in at Ballarat but I have decided to keep him fresh. He is very fit and he seems to run best with his races spaced as you can see from his form in Europe".

"He has really turned the corner over the last 6 weeks. He was a handful to start with but since we have changed his training regime, he has thrived. He spends plenty of time at the beach and does hill work once a week which keeps him fit without hurting him".

"The hill work really seems to stimulate them They trot and canter up the hill and walk back down on a loose rein. It is great for their breathing and aerobic fitness. Danger Close and Sang Choi Bao have been doing the same work and they are also thriving".

"Working around and around a track every day really bored Teddy and he wasn't enjoying his work. He is much happier these days and I think the results will flow".
