Trainer hopes Romanticize extends love affair on turf

SALLY Torrens continues to savour her duel training “capers” after tasting a win at Tamworth Harness Racing club’s Derby meeting on Thursday with Cody Shannon.

Tomorrow she saddles up Romanticize at the Tamworth  Cup race meeting.

Her large grin told the story.

“I’ve got one trotter and one galloper in work,” she said.

“But the two two-year-olds, Rosie O’Rourke and Tirenesh, are about to come back into work after their Bathurst trips and two gallopers, Moon Aura and Subtract, are out spelling.”

She has relished the chance to branch out into training gallopers and thinks Romanticize is a chance tomorrow.

“She’s going good,” she said.

Torrens was delighted with the way Cody Shannon raced and won for Tamworth trainer Russell Murray on Thursday.

“He went super. They ran a bit of time too,” Torrens said of a four-year-old gelding who won the Tamworth Shoppingworld Newsagency Pace (1609m).

Torrens was at her best to enable the son of Dawn Of A New Day to win by 5.5m.

Earlier, Tony Missen had bolted in with My Red Ruby.

The five-year-old mare won the TAB pace by 36.75m.

“She led all the way – went very good,”  Missen said.

“Guy Chapple gave her to me and she’d run a fair few seconds for me as well as dead-heating here at her last start .

 She’s honest  and still a C0,” he said.

“Hopefully, there a few more wins left in her.”
