Top Hunter trainer Jason Mackay won't add to his list of group 1 winners on Saturday night but he is eyeing doubles at Wentworth Park and The Gardens.
The group 1 National Futurity, Derby and Paws Of Thunder highlight a massive night of racing at Wentworth Park. No Hunter-trained dogs made those deciders but Mackay has a hope in the $40,000-to-the-winner Summer Distance Plate Final (720m) with It's A Flirt.
She was a close third in heats last week and has box four in the final, which was not a concern for the kennel.
"I reckon four won't be too bad because Stanley Road [box one] and Zipping Truvy [two] have no speed and I don't even know the three [Trouble at Mill]," Jason's daughter, April, said.
"She's got a begin in her so if she comes out, she'll be in front. She broke down but she's back now and the times she is trialling are scary."
Mackay also has Kipling from box seven in the last.
"He's got very good form out wide," April said. "He had a couple of problems and we've helped him out, but he's different dog if he begins. He didn't get a go at them at the Gosford Cup, but he came out well last start at Wentworth Park [and won]."
The Mackay team, who had a treble at Wentworth Park on Wednesday night, also have Impress Lleyton (race five) and Zipping Winks (two) at The Gardens.
They expected Impress Lleyton to back up a dominant win at Maitland on Monday and Zipping Winks to make an impressive debut.
On Friday night at The Gardens, Swan Bay trainer Allan Ivers had wins with Sketchy Looking and Block Me in heats of the Red Dog series.
