Mark Du Plessis will ride the Kacy Fogden-trained Happy Two Thousand at Doomben.
Trainer Kacy Fogden can add another first in her escalating career when Happy Two Thousand runs at Doomben.
Happy Two Thousand gave Fogden her first winner as a trainer when he won a midweek race at the Sunshine Coast on July 17.
Fogden followed up with her first double as a trainer when King’s Full and Dubai Tycoon won at the Sunshine Coast on Sunday.
Happy Two Thousand can give her a first Saturday metropolitan winner in the TAB Handicap.
Originally from New Zealand, Fogden has been a key worker as a pre-training manager at the Aquis Farm complex, at Canungra in the Gold Coast hinterland, for several years.
She branched out as a trainer of horses for Aquis and other mainly Asian clients earlier this year.
Happy Two Thousand showed a lot of fight to win at his his start at the Sunshine Coast.
“He won a trial before that run so he keeps on improving and deserves a chance in town,” Fogden said.
Happy Two Thousand is also entered for the Sunshine Coast on Sunday.
She had to wait 13 runners to get her first winner but has now had three wins from her past four starters.
In-form jockey Michael Hellyer has ridden all three of Fogden’s winners but is not riding on Saturday and Mark Du Plessis has the ride on Happy Two Thousand.
