“Pepper Fire remains unbeaten over 405m”

High quality sprinter Pepper Fire produced a brilliant performance to win tonight’s A1 Salvage and Hardware Free For All over 405m. Returning from Victoria where she was unplaced twice at The Meadows she was able to settle third at the first turn before bursting to the lead in the middle stages and winning in 22.67. The Terry Erenshaw prepared Smooth ran on strongly to finish second and early leader Shared Bonus held on for third. Pepper Fire was in terrific form at Cannington earlier this year, winning over 520m in a smart 29.80. She is owned by trainer Chris Halse and partner Linda Britton and has now earned almost $180,000 in stake earnings. Her career record stands at an impressive 16 wins and 20 minor placings from 46 career outings.

“Benelli Monelli breaks maiden status for Beard”

The Shane Beard (pictured)prepared Benelli Monelli started an even money favourite in tonight’s Elders Insurance Call Justin Maiden over 405m. After being a runner up at 7 of his 21 career starts the son of Fabregas loomed as the hardest to beat in a small field of five. Following a good jump he was out-paced to the first turn by Flashtastic but once he became balanced Benelli Monelli was able to reel in the pacemaker and score by four lengths. His time of 23.31 was only fair but it was a deserved break through given the amount of times he’d finished second. Flashtastic battled on to finish second for Tony Williams and Houdini Flyer ran third for Dwayne Jovanovic.

HOUNDS TO FOLLOW :

Trial 2 Number 3 MISS AMERICA : Won her third Qualifying Trial in good time and is ready to win on debut.

Race 4 Number 8 GINO’S ME BOY : Lost narrowly and has now been placed in 10 of 22 career starts.

Races 9 – 12 Abandoned due to lightning in the immediate area.
