“Fabs Gem continues on her winning way”
Highly promising youngster Fabs Gem was heavily backed into a $1.22 fixed odds favourite tonight and he didn’t let his backers down, winning in 22.69. The daughter of Fabregas missed the start but zoomed through on the inside to take the lead at the first turn. Constant Rama had begun well but couldn’t match Fabs Gem in the middle stages and was found wanting late, finishing third behind the fast finishing No Added Sugar. Constant Rama was having his 100th start and his cheque for third took his career earnings over $60,000. Fabs Gem is raced by Greg Martin and Anothony Barrranca and has now won 8 of 16 career starts. Her litter brother Cosmic Gas won twenty minutes later in a slightly slower time of 22.88.
HOUNDS TO FOLLOW :
Race 4 Number 2 GO GETTEM LUCKY : Made a lot of ground in the middle stages and is one to watch.
Race 5 Number 5 JUNK YARD MUPPET : Came from last to first over 490m and could be a stayer in the future.
