Let’s Party Marty thriving for new trainer Lindsay Hatch

Rejuvenated six-year-old Let’s Party Marty has had an easy time of it since he last went to the races as new trainer Lindsay Hatch sticks to a winning formula ahead of his tilt on today’s Class 6 Plate at Doomben.

Let’s Party Marty has won his two starts for Hatch, the latest by 3.5 lengths at Doomben over subsequent winner Snowzone.

That was 28 days after his first-up win at Toowoomba and Hatch has given him another 35 days leading into today’s assignment.

“The real key to this horse is that he’s a naturally very fit horse. He doesn’t need much work,” Hatch said.

“I’ve been able to space his runs and it just works. I gave him five or six days with his head down (after the last win) and he seems to thrive on it.

“He’s improved if anything since the last start. He had a jumpout and went super. I’m very happy with him.”

Hatch is the fourth trainer for Let’s Party Marty, who won on debut in strong Saturday grade for David Vandyke, later went to John Thompson in Sydney and then Angela Plumb on the Gold Coast.

“I followed the horse all along. I always thought he was a good horse,” Hatch said.

“David Vandyke when he makes a statement you have to listen. He’s a terrific bloke and a very good judge and he had a huge rap on him.”

Hatch will leave tactics up to jockey Bobby El-Issa and he’s not fussed if Let’s Party Marty leads or takes a sit in the run.

Stablemate Gunnobe can also race well according to the trainer.

“She does like the cut out a bit and doesn’t like it hard,” he said. “It might have been second up syndrome last time, but she’s drawn well, will get a nice run in the race and I think she can be in the finish.”
