20190719 – Mandurah Friday – The Winter Sprint Heats

“Conway Gundi causes upset result in Winter Sprint heat”

Talented speedster Conway Gundi unleashed a strong late surge to overhaul more fancied rivals to win tonight’s third heat of the Winter Sprint. Race favourites Mottza and Alfa Tonic matched strides in the lead but turning for home $22 outsider Conway Gundi began to close on the pair. He reached the lead out wide on the track with fifty metres to go before prevailing by half a length in 23.09. Mottza won the photo finish for second a half head in front of Alfa Tonic. Four heats were contested over the 405m distance so first and second from each heat qualified for next Friday’s Final. The other three heat winners clocked faster times namely Fabs Gem (22.71), Optical (22.51) and Slingshot Gypsy (22.61). Despite his time Conway Gundi will have admirers in the final given that he was won 13 of his 25 career starts for Crossman trainer Christine Bennett.

HOUNDS TO FOLLOW :

Race 3 Number 3 HAPPY RAGE : Led throughout in a smart 22.95 and with her early speed is going to lead and win plenty.

Race 5 Number 7 WESTDALE ANNE : Made ground to finish third and from an inside draw will be very hard to beat next start.

“Jerky Boy hits top gear in Free For All”

Top flight short-courser Jerky Boy cemented himself as one of the best 405m chasers in the state tonight when he led throughout in the Mandurah Stockfeeds Free For All. The 30kg black dog sped out of box five to find an outright lead at the first turn before defeating a quality field by five lengths. Noted speedster Go Pro chased him home to be the runner up ahead of the fast finishing Naiqama. Jerky Boy began his career last December and at his fourth start broke his maiden status over 520m at Cannington (in 30.42). He made his 405m Mandurah debut in early March and ran on stylishly to score in 22.98 after settling fourth at the first turn. Since then the son of High Earner has started 13 times at Mandurah for 6 wins and 4 minor placings. The winning time of 22.45 is just four lengths outside of Quartz Bale’s track record (22.22) that was recorded back in October of 2014. Later in the night three heats of the Mandurah Derby were run with the fastest heat winner It’s A Storm clocking a sizzling 27.37.

“Cosmic Colada winds back the clock”

Evergreen Mandurah specialist Cosmic Colada took out tonight’s Mandurah Stockfeeds Mixed 4/5 in emphatic fashion, leading throughout and winning by seven lengths. It was her twentieth career victory, all of which have occurred at TABtouch Park Mandurah. She began swiftly and crossed her rivals before charging away and clocking a new PB of 22.65. To record a new best time at her 94th attempt over the distance, and at the age of four years and ten months is quite astonishing. The Michael Johnston trained On The Take ran on nicely for second and Special Hodge held on to third for Tim Gummow. Cosmic Colada is owned and trained out of Nambeelup by Kylie McLennan and has now earned over $35,000.

HOUNDS TO FOLLOW :

Race 1 Number 8 ROSIE CRISTALLE : Showed plenty of early pace and rallied late to only go down by half a length.

Race 6 Number 8 KRUSTY MONELLI : Snapped a losing sequence of 12 and stormed to the line.

“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.

HOUNDS TO FOLLOW :

Race 1 Number 7 SAUSILITO : Will get under a few guards, missed the kick hopelessly before running fourth in good time.

Race 3 Number 1 NIOBIUM : Capitalised on box one and recorded a very fast 22.67.
