20190621 – Mandurah Friday – The Sandgroper Heats

“Kiss Me Linda qualifies fastest for Sandgroper Final”

Top shelf sprinter Kiss Me Linda made light work of her Sandgroper heat tonight, leading throughout in a fast 27.55 from box three. The fast beginner was heavily backed into $1.30 and didn’t let her supporters down, quickly establishing a buffer before recording a time that would win most Free For Alls over the 490m distance. The victory notched a hat-trick of wins after she won her previous two starts over 520m at Cannington. The daughter of Kinloch Brae ran second in the WA Oaks Final earlier this month and also was a Perth Cup finalist back in March. The Tania Thomas trained Spitting Venom ran a gallant second to her and was only beaten 2.75 lengths. The other three heat winners were Deberti (27.80), Venus And Mars (27.78) and Garbrandt (27.70).

20190615 – Cannington Saturday – Winter Cup

“West On Augie wins the Winter Cup for Chris Halse”

The Winter Cup was first run back in 1975 when Kwinana Lad scored on the original grass track over 530m in 32.12. Notable winners since include Sandi’s Me Mum (1989 and 1990), Corn Dolly (1999), Eye Murunna (2008), Hot Irish (2012) and Fun Boss (2016). A terrific field was assembled for the $30,000 final tonight but the event was over after 100m when National Sprint Champion West On Augie cleared his rivals from box eight. The champ was never in any doubt once he found the front and scored by a comfortable six length margin. Outside Snazzy Whompo ran on nicely for second ahead of Quara’s Zade who finished third. West On Augie has now won 30 of 44 at Cannington, 35 of 59 overall and more than $397,000 in stake money. ‘Augie’ is just three years and four months old and has plenty more racing left in him.

HOUNDS TO FOLLOW :

Race 1 Number 2 GO GETTEM KRACKA : Made up ground late and with room early he will take a power of beating at his next start.

Race 3 Number 4 JERKY BOY : Was unable to lead but stuck on well to finish a close up third and is ready to win.
