“Fab Philippe scorches around in 22.70 for Vince Reid”
Wannanup trainer Vince Reid produced a brilliant winner in tonight’s opening event, the TABtouch Better Your Bet Novice. Fab Philippe had only managed 1 victory from his first 6 starts but was heavily supported out of box two and didn’t let his backers down. NSW newcomer Superstar Chase flew out of box three and set the pace but couldn’t withstand the mid race pressure applied by Fab Philippe. The son of Banjo Boy railed to the lead before shooting away to win by four lengths in a slick 22.70. Superstar Chase finished second narrowly ahead of Slobber Chops who did a great job to make the podium from box eight. Fab Philippe’s time of 22.70 was more than five lengths faster than his previous PB of 23.01 set just seven days earlier. Fab Philippe is out of a bitch called Beyond Resolve that Reid also trained, she started 65 times for 8 wins and 21 minor placings.
