Sarge watches Lincoln Farms’ pair stretch their legs at Royal Randwick
Lincoln Sky and Lincoln’s Command have arrived safely in Sydney and had some quiet exercise this morning under the watchful eye of new trainer John Sargent.
The two promising stayers, raced by Lincoln Farms’ owners John and Lynne Street, flew in overnight from Auckland and looked bright when shown Royal Randwick for the first time.
The pair are in Sydney to target the rich prizemoney and escape New Zealand’s winter bog tracks.

Thursday at Woodville
Race 2: Ajay Lincoln
“He has a wide draw but will come in a lot when the ballots come out. The track looks like it will be more suitable, in the dead range. It will be good to get this race into him and then step him up to a middle distance as Robbie has always felt he would be better over a longer distance. I am expecting a far better run on an improved track.”
Race 3: Lincoln Star
“He has trained on well since his good run at Hastings. The outside draw doesn’t help but we will be positive, go forward, and try to get some cover. He has continued to work well and, with luck, he should be in the finish.”
