Trainer confident in Toretto

Champion trainer Gary Hall Sr is confident Toretto will be hard to beat in Friday night’s $250,000 Fremantle Cup (2536m) at Gloucester Park.

Toretto had not raced for six months after picking up a foot injury but showed no signs of the problem when winning last Friday’s Pace (2536m) at the WA track.

Toretto was among 41 entries lodged when cup nominations closed yesterday and Racing and Wagering WA harness racing handicappers will now select a 12-horse field.

Despite his injury problems, Hall Sr is delighted with the form of Toretto and believes he will go well on Friday night.
“Toretto’s back to the form he showed when he finished a close second in last year’s WA Pacing Cup,” Hall said.

“He’s done well since the first-up win and finally seems trouble-free. Foot soreness struck at the start of his winter campaign and he was turned out after two starts in June.

“He was due to resume racing six weeks ago, but an eye abscess flared.”

Hall, who has eight WA Pacing Cup wins and five Fremantle Cups, again has a powerful team to tackle the Group 1 double.

The trainer has also entered Machtu, Soho Jackman, Some Kinda Tactics, Northview Punter, Soho Highroller, Soho Lennon, My Hard Copy and Bettor Reason.
