20171202 – Cannington Saturday

PETUNIA MONELLI (Bella Infrared- Lara Monelli) lowered the Track Record as she returned to WA with a dominant victory over the 715 metres. Having led Fanta Bale in the recent Gr 1 Bold Trease final before finishing unplaced, the David Hobby bitch had to settle in second place early behind kennel mate Ashom Monelli. The black bitch dropped into another gear entering the back straight and stopped the clock at 41.76, lowering Ramifications previous track record time of 41.83.

VICTOR METTI (Djay’s Octane- Giacometti) caused an upset in the opening heat of the Anniversary Cup defeating Sassy Ginger by a head with 1 3/4 lengths to Black Fusileer. The Michael Johnston trained dog had won two starts back in 30.18, however was sent out at over $40 on tote. The fawn dog missed the trouble on the first corner before holding off Sassy Ginger in the run to the line.

EQUANIMITY (Barcia Bale- She’s Historic) led throughout in the second heat of the Anniversary Cup scoring an 8 length win over kennel mate Bundles Galore in 29.85. For trainer Enzo Crudeli and owner/breeder Robbie Brankstone the win gave them a lift after litter brother He’s Historic fell in the previous heat and failed to finish. Luckily he pulled up with only a minor injury and was stood down for 10 days. Equanimity has now won over $265,000 in stakes plus breeders bonuses, with wins in the Gr 1 Perth Cup and Gr 2 All Stars.
