Harness Racing: Callaghan has faith in Cash N Flow

Star young gun Jack Callaghan has every faith in Cash N Flow and believes he has what it takes to win the All In One Property Mercury80 Final at Melton next week.

Callaghan is currently riding the crest of a wave and hopes to stay on it for a little longer as he targets more success with Cash N Flow in the Mercury80.

Top form

Callaghan has been flying in recent weeks when guiding Spirit Of St Louis to glory in the Ballarat, Sheppparton and Bendigo Cups.

On Saturday night he will be in the sulky with Cash N Flow for the final heat of the Mercury 80 with a view to booking a spot in the final the week after.

Spirit Of St Louis strikes again

Cash N Flow is no stranger to Group 1 races but has been unplaced in his last two starts, leading to suggestions his best days might be behind him.

However Callaghan is having none of that and believes his charge can taste more success in the Mercury80.

"While he might not be at the peak of his powers as he was 18 months ago, he is still good enough to win this series," he said.

"He has enough gate speed to put himself in the race from the draw and be close enough on the turn to be in the finish."

1200m no issue

The Mercury80 is something of a short-course dash but Callaghan is comfortable with the distance having tasted success over it already.

"I’ve driven in two 1200 metre races at Tamworth and won one of them," Callaghan added. "Some people think you have to go flat out the whole way of the 1200 metres but you’ve still got to rate your horse."
