Launching Pad trial file: Azzopardi & Lagogiane


Anthony Azzopardi and Peter Lagogiane trialled a number of impressive youngsters this morning all bound for next month’s $432,000 Launching Pad series.

Heading the triallers was the brilliant Dolly Mac who won her first five career starts – including a brilliant 29.78 gallop at the Meadows – before going amiss last December. Now fully recovered, she will be one of the leading contenders for the group 2 series.

Peter Lagogiane returns to Sandown Park for another tilt the series after claiming the $150,000 winner cheque with Beast Unleashed in 2018.

Heats of the Launching Pad will be run on Thursday April 4.
