Boomwaa is set to return to racing in a Benchmark 78 Handicap at Sandown on Saturday and trainer Robbie Laing is happy with the condition of the talented gelding.

Boomwaa has the chance to record his first race win since he took out the 2013 Maribyrnong Plate when he returns to racing at Sandown on Saturday.

Boomwaa has the chance to record his first race win since he took out the 2013 Maribyrnong Plate when he returns to racing at Sandown on Saturday.

Boomwaa started his 2014 Spring Racing Carnival campaign with a unlucky third in the Mitchelton Wines Vase (1000m) at Moonee Valley on August 2 and he finished a credible third behind Get The Nod in the Group 3 Vain Stakes (1100m) at Caulfield on August 16, but was sent to the spelling paddock after he failed to fire in the Group 3 McNeil Stakes (1200m) at the same venue on August 30.

Laing told TVN that he was never completely happy with the physical condition of Boomwaa in the spring, but he said that three-year-old took plenty of benefit from his stint in the spelling paddock and was a stronger horse ahead of his racing return.

“The horse looked awful and was very light,” Laing said.

“The biggest surprise was how well he went at his first two starts back before failing dismally at run number three and I knew we just had to stop with him.

“The owners were great about it because they could see he wasn’t right, so I gave him two months out and he now looks like he did when he was flying as a two-year-old.

“He’s back to 530kgs, which is a lot better than what he was early in the spring.”

Boomwaa made his racing debut with a third place finish in the Listed Maribyrnong Trial Stakes (1000m) at Flemington in October last year and he finished fourth in the Inglis Banner (1000m) at Moonee Valley on October 26 before he stamped himself as a horse to watch with a dominant three lengths win in the Group 3 Maribyrnong Plate (1000m) at Flemington on Emirates Stakes Day.

The Mutawaajid gelding finished second in both the ATC Membership On Sale Plate (1100m) and Inglis Classic (1200m) against horses his own age before Laing opted to throw the two-year-old in the deep against older horses in the Group 1 Black Caviar Lightning Stakes (1000m) and he could finish no better than tenth.

Boomwaa returned to a semblance of his best form with a fifth place finish in the Group 1 Blue Diamond Stakes (1200m) at Caulfield on February 22 and finished his campaign with a fourth place finish in the Group 2 VRC Sires Produce Stakes (1400m) at Flemington on March 8.

The three-year-old has recorded just one race win, but has already accumulated $235,900 in prizemoney after he was purchased for just $43,000 at the 2013 Inglis Classic Yearling Summer Sale.

    First off I would like to say fantastic blog! I had a quick question which I’d like
    to ask if you do not mind. I was interested to know how you center yourself and clear your head prior to writing.
    I’ve had trouble clearing my thoughts in getting my ideas out.
    I truly do enjoy writing but it just seems like the first 10
    to 15 minutes are generally lost just trying to figure out how to begin. Any ideas or hints?

    Appreciate it!

    The other day, while I was at work, my sister stole my iPad and
    tested to see if it can survive a thirty
    foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation. My apple ipad is now destroyed
    and she has 83 views. I know this is totally off topic but I had to share it with someone!

    But, think about this, what if you added a little
    content? I mean, I don’t want to tell you how to run your website, however suppose you
    added something that makes people desire more?

    I mean Laing Happy With Boomwaa Ahead Of Racing Return – HorseRacing.com.au is a little plain. You
    might glance at Yahoo’s home page and see how they write article headlines to get people interested.
    You might add a video or a picture or two to get readers
    excited about everything’ve written. Just my opinion, it
    could make your posts a little bit more interesting.
