Heading for Kentucky
August 4 2010
Flights are booked, we are still not 100% sure when the horses fly out, currently it is the 29th August , which is not far away. The Team is now almost organised, Norbet and Acheron had their final preparation ride of 90km this last week which they won in fine style in 4:53hrs.
The final team is
Norbet Radny and West Coast Acheron
Grooms Jane Radny ,Dr Narelle Cribb
Crew Rebecca Radny, Harry O’Brien, Ian Symington
Matthew Sample and Tarrengower Crecendo
Reserve: Brookleigh Ricardo
Grooms; Paul Brown, Jessica Landridge

Penny Toft and Don
Grooms: Anne Hall, Alexandra Toft
Crew: Helen Toft, Jackie Byrnes, Peter Toft
Chef D’ Equipe, Dr Trish Mackay Annetts, Assistant: Denise Trollope
Team Veterinarian: Dr Robyn Mather

Matthew and Crecendo will be competing at the Murrumba 100km ride on 8th August as the final work out and Penny and Don will be going out to Charleville the 21st August for their final run.
The flights for the horses has been a bit distressing as the original flight bookings were cancelled without warning when the carrier suspended all services to Australia and New Zealand. Currently the horses are booked on the 29th August, this has also incurred extra cost to the competitors.
Dr Narelle Cribb, Paul brown and Peter Toft are scheduled to travel with the horses. This too may change!
