“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.


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.

“Promising youngster Cosmic Ox wins again in an awesome time”

Highly promising youngster Cosmic Ox recorded a sizzling 21.64 tonight when he overcame box eight to win the Get The TABtouch Novice over 380m. Despite weighing in at 36.3kg the son of Fabregas turns two in October and is just a baby. He ran first and second at his first two starts and tonight could not have been more impressive. Sent out at $2.20 from the unfavourable draw of box eight, he launched himself to the lead before posting a slick 21.64 and winning by nine lengths. The reserve Devine Tilly ran second ahead of Tiger Keeping who did well to run third after checking off the heels of Cosmic Ox at the first turn. Cosmic Ox is raced by Anthony Barranca and is trained out of Canning Vale by Jamie Marsh, he’s going to love Mandurah with a longer run to the first corner.


Race 2 Number 6 METAL BUSTER : Flew the boxes before scoring in sub 22 seconds for the in form Enzo Crudeli.

Race 6 Number 3 FABS GEM : Missed the kick before flying home for a narrow second in good time. She’s going to be good.

“Destroyer wins staying Free For All for Chris Halse”

Ex-Victorian based stayer Destroyer put in a solid performance this evening when he took out the 715m Free For All. Odds-on favourite Scott Keeping began only fairly from box two and was headed off at the first turn by Destroyer from box six. The son of Spring Gun soared clear with a lap to go and established a five length lead over kennel-mate Ramifications who was the closest pursuer. Outsider Chezzy Allen raced in third position ahead of Scott Keeping who began to build some momentum. Turning for home it was clear that Destroyer was going to lead all the way and while Scott Keeping rallied late he was beaten four lengths. Ramifications was another two lengths away third in advance of Chezzy Allen (fourth) and Moment To Jive (fifth). Destroyer was having his second start in WA after finding early trouble and running sixth over 520m. The Neil Young owned chaser has now started 46 times for 9 wins, 23 minor placings and over $64,000 in earnings.


Race 1 Number 1 FUNKY FACTS : Rocketed late to snatch third and won’t take long to win one.

Race 2 Number 5 LORENZO BLUE : Steamed home strongly again at long odds after flying home at his previous start.
