“We will be working on the main track early morning tomorrow (Saturday),” said a confident trainer Shivananda Parbhoo. “Trinniberg has settled nicely at the Quarantine after the long trip and had a walk around the place.

“I think everything is fine and he should show the best of him on March 30,” he noted.

Parbhoo said he’s not worried about the tapeta surface on which he will be racing for the first time, though it differs from the Synthetic (All-Weather) track on which they are competing in America.

“It’s sticky here. It didn’t look to be very similar to the Pro-Ride surface in the US. We had the experience of racing on the Polly track and I think my horse will get adapted.

“There’s enough time to figure things out,” he said.

When asked why they didn’t arrive earlier, Parbhoo said the season back at home is very demanding and they are very busy with their horses there.

“I have no idea about my opponents in the race, but I have some knowledge about Satish Semmar’s horse (Reynaldothewizard),” he also added.

Trinninberg, a four-year-old by Teuflesberg who has won his first Grade-1 after landing the Breeders’ Cup Sprint for its young owner lady Sherry Parbhoo, will be representing the US alongside Doug O’Neill-trained Private Zone to restore the lost Paradise for the American sprinters who have dominated the title on nine occasions out of 13 appearances.
