Thru The Years hits top gear at Northam

Talented chaser Thru The Years relished box one today at Northam in the Get Your Quaddie On Grade 5 over 509m. A very strong lineup were boxed at the top of the Northam straight for a Country Grade 5 and at the first turn Litt Up (box 3) and Betstakker (box 4) were sharing the lead. Thru The Years who had been a minor placegetter at his last three runs over 509m settled in third position. Down the back straight Betstakker shot to the lead and Thru The Years zoomed into second to give pursuit. Turning for home Betstakker left the rail and Thru The Years charged through, taking the lead and scoring by two lengths in 29.72. Betstakker held second ahead of kennel-mate Jazz Get On who finished third. Thru The Years is owned by Helen Sayer, trained by Ben Abercrombie and has now won 5 of 21 career starts.
