“Molfetta Girl salutes at long odds for Minutillo”
Treeby based trainer delivered an upset result tonight when Molfetta Girl upstaged her more fancied rivals to score at odds of $46.20 on tote. The 27kg black bitch had only managed two minor placings from her 16 career starts leading in to tonight and was justifiably sent out at juicy odds. She began better and was hunting into third position as they left the back straight tracking favourites Jimmy Junior and Vanessa Keeping. Turning for home Jimmy Junior wobbled wide and Molfetta Girl challenged on the inside, she timed her run to perfection and scored by half a head in 23.30. A length away in third was the fast finishing Go Gettem Fab who overtook the weakening Vanessa Keeping late. Minutillo has prepared some very handy chasers in the past like Nero Bolt, Molfetta Boy, Gearbox Charlie, Lochinvar Sonic, Black Enigma and Lochinvar Sass.
