A local favourite will be back at Geraldton Turf Club tomorrow.

Trainer Allan Hughes said he nominated six-year-old Kenyluck for a city race but the track was too wet, so the turf club’s reigning two-time horse of the year would go around the local track again before a road trip ahead of the Batavia Sprint.

“He’s got to have a nice dry track,” Hughes said.

“I’ll give him a run after this one down south and I’ll be ready for the Batavia Sprint here.”

Jockey Rosie Mahoney will be aboard Kenyluck tomorrow, in the Bunbury Apartment Motel Handicap in race five, and hoping for her third win on the same horse in six weeks. The pair won handicaps at Geraldton on October 10 and September 29.

Hughes has another runner tomorrow, Wingsonmyfeet in race two, the Hahn 3.5 Maiden.

Mahony will have six rides on the day, including Frosty Belle for Gordon Spowart and Mr Rossi for Robert Martin.

The Batavia Sprint runs in January after the Walkway Cup, which is on December 27.
