“Trickster Lumik ends long losing sequence for Iwanyk”

Honest veteran Trickster Lumik appreciated the drop from Free For All company to Master’s opposition tonight when a solid winner over 405m. The daughter of Blue Lorian was having her 132nd start and after a gallant second behind Lachlan Monelli (over 490m) last Friday she was well supported against fellow ‘greybeards’ this evening. She began well from box two and at the first turn crossed Howzat Ernie (box 1) which allowed her to find the fence and build momentum. The Kylie McLennan prepared Ima Robber leveled up in the middle stages but with the inside advantage and a bigger motor Trickster Lumik was able to dash away and post 23.05. It was Trickster Lumik’s first victory for thirteen months. She is owned by Luke Garbutt and prepared by Nambeelup trainer John Iwanyk. Her career statistics now stand at 132 starts for 10 wins, 50 minor placings and over $53,000 in earnings.


Race 3 Number 7 COURAGEOUS NIKKI : Ran on gamely to be a fast finishing third and a 490m Masters race would be perfect for her.

Race 4 Number 2 WEST ON SPACE : Was a beaten favourite but he hit the line like a rocket and must be followed up.
