“Yana Monelli relishes wearing red for MacLean”
Nicely bred chaser Yana Monelli was most impressive tonight, leading throughout over 405m in 22.89. From box one she sped to an early lead and while Flying Urkal and Son Of Caesar gave chase, they couldn’t reel in the daughter of Barcia Bale who maintained a buffer throughout. She is a red fawn 28kg bitch who is trained by Southern River based mentor Ben MacLean. MacLean achieved a race to race double twenty minutes later when Get The Blues scored over 405m. Yana Monelli has now won 5 of 20 career starts for owner/breeders Mike and Michelle Quinsee.
