“Phil Worthington Quinellas opening event”
Nambeelup trainer Phil Worthington produced first and second place getters in today’s Free Entry Thursday Maiden over 297m. The Kody Charles prepared Wind Power Dream was sent out as an odds on favourite from box two but didn’t begin with much gusto, allowing Queen Of Sparta to surge across and lead. She was having her twelfth career start and after being placed at her last three runs deserved a break through victory. Kennel mate Marapana railed through to second and gave chase but was beaten two lengths by Queen Of Sparta in 17.71. Another four lengths away in third position was the Bill Choules trained Go Gettem Santa. Queen Of Sparta only weighs in at 24kg but will win plenty more races with her early pace for her owners the Spartan Chasers Syndicate.
HOUNDS TO FOLLOW :
Race 2 Number 4 SWITCHEN SAVE : Exploded out of the boxes to lead throughout at 40/1.
Race 4 Number 2 MINI EARNER : Began cleanly and wasn’t far away, won’t take long to win one at Northam.
