“Jerky Boy hits top gear in Free For All”

Top flight short-courser Jerky Boy cemented himself as one of the best 405m chasers in the state tonight when he led throughout in the Mandurah Stockfeeds Free For All. The 30kg black dog sped out of box five to find an outright lead at the first turn before defeating a quality field by five lengths. Noted speedster Go Pro chased him home to be the runner up ahead of the fast finishing Naiqama. Jerky Boy began his career last December and at his fourth start broke his maiden status over 520m at Cannington (in 30.42). He made his 405m Mandurah debut in early March and ran on stylishly to score in 22.98 after settling fourth at the first turn. Since then the son of High Earner has started 13 times at Mandurah for 6 wins and 4 minor placings. The winning time of 22.45 is just four lengths outside of Quartz Bale’s track record (22.22) that was recorded back in October of 2014. Later in the night three heats of the Mandurah Derby were run with the fastest heat winner It’s A Storm clocking a sizzling 27.37.
