“New Echo causes upset result for Erenshaw”
Mandurah track specialist New Echo caused a boilover when he won tonight’s Essential Refrigeration Services Mixed 4/5 over 405m. The son of Barcia Bale drew awkwardly in box six and was coming up against the more favoured Red Rocket Jett (box 1), Savannah Ash (box 4) and Love Me Tinder (box 5). Red Rocket Jett was a grade-dropper while Savannah Ash won her last start at Cannington in a flying time of 30.00. Lover Me Tinder ran second in a Perth Cup heat in late March behind the eventual winner of the series Orson Allen. Despite starting $13.00 with the WA TAB New Echo was able to fly from the boxes and cross his more fancied rivals at the first turn. Love Me Tinder gave chase and did make ground late but New Echo was able to score by two lengths in a fast 22.79. It was the Terry Erenshaw trained chaser’s twelfth career victory from 34 starts. Seven of those triumphs have resulted at the Mandurah venue and the winning time was also a new personal best. Erenshaw prepares his greyhounds out of Canning Vale and has put the polish in the past on brilliant types Blue Goose, Zini’s Gump, Buddy Be Cool, Milly Keeping, Doc Hudson and Timmy Mac.
HOUNDS TO FOLLOW :
