“Desert Rampage comes from last to win 405m Free For All”
Mandurah track specialist Desert Rampage drew box six in tonight’s TABtouch Free For All over 405m and was well supported into an equal favourite with Madeline Keeping who drew box one. The Terry Erenshaw trained Madeline Keeping flew out and led while Desert Rampage was clearly last to leave the boxes. At the first turn Madeline Keeping was in front but the David Hobby trained Mamma Monelli was challenging out wide and Desert Rampage zoomed between runners to reach third position. Turning for home Mamma Monelli hit the lead but Desert Rampage was building momentum along the rail and looked ominous. The Chris Halse trained chaser shouldered his way to the front before winning by a neck over Mamma Monelli and three lengths away third was Madeline Keeping. The winner’s time was 22.86 and it was his 26th victory over 405m from 44 starts.
