Zambada looking for TAB Federal win for Facoory

Good fields for the return to racing on Canberra’s synthetic Acton track will ensure a great day of punting at the annual Brema Group race day this Friday.

Paul Facoory, who moved to Canberra in July last year, has had a great start to his first 12 months, and now trains 15 horses from his stables.  His 3yo colt Zambada, ticks all the boxes when it comes to his training and with a placing this preparation looks the business for his second attempt at the TAB Federal.

“He has improved from last start after his spell and has been working incredibly well over the past few weeks” Facoory said.  Kayla Nisbet has ridden him a few times now and knows his quirks, he definitely exposes any weakness in a rider and she has done well with a win and a placing on his back at Canberra”. 

“We will assess the next steps after the TAB Federal but I am excited about his progress so far”.

Racing on the Acton track will progress through the Winter, with the last meeting on 7 September.  Facoory is not bothered by the chilly Canberra Winter.  Ï am from New Zealand and I love the cold” he said.  “We arrived here in -8 degrees and I had my first win in Canberra on the synthetic track”.

Facoory has several starters for Friday’s meeting.  Countof Montecarlo in the Class 1 & Maiden has had a few weeks freshen up and Casino’s Jewels in the same race is improving every start but is looking for more distance.  “Alpine King in the Class 2 should also run a good race, and still on the improve, while we work him out”.  Facoory said.
