20180809 – Cannington Thursday

MOMENT TO JIVE (Mogambo- Sharon Monelli) raced into the final of the Crocmedia National Distance at Sandown in Victoria at the end of the month with a brilliant win over Poppy Monelli. The Sarah Appleton trained bitch returns now to Sandown where she finished a close up fourth in the Sandown Cup earlier in the year. The black bitch has now reached 4 Gr 1 finals and has won over $185,000 in stakes since joining Appleton’s care as a pup. Race favourite Quick Jagger blew the start and was never a chance after failing to get to the lead. WA last won the National Distance final in 2012 in Hobart when Miata won.

WEST ON AUGIE (Fernando Bale- Te Amo) will represent WA in the final of the Crocmedia National Sprint with an all the win in the WA Sprint final.

The track condition stood up well after heavy rain throughout the day and into the evening. West On Augie has now won 20 times from just 33 career starts and has won over $185,000 in stakes. The last time WA won the National sprint final was in 1997 at Angle Park when Prince Of Tigers saluted.
