“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.

“What A Hoot explodes out of boxes to set up victory”

Evergreen sprinter What A Hoot produced a stunning performance to win tonight’s Essential Refrigeration Services Mixed 3/4 over 405m. The daughter of Queensland based sire Glen Gallon began like a cannonball from box four, appearing from the boxes first and effectively gaining a three length head start over a bunch of speedsters. She crossed to the rail at the first turn but race favourite Ouchamp settled on her coat-tails and loomed as a big threat. Also settling in third and fourth positions were noted strong finishers Brooksy Monelli and Stratosphere. What A Hoot straightened a length in front and as Ouchamp hooked off her heels to challenge she found plenty, winning by just over a length in a brisk 22.82. Close up in third and fourth were Brooksy Monelli and Stratosphere respectively. What A Hoot is prepared by Southern River based trainer Jen Thompson and has now won 13 of 62 career starts and accumulated more than $43,000 in career earnings. The 30kg white bitch turns four years old in June and will then be eligible for Masters racing where a time like 22.82 will see her win more than she loses.

HOUNDS TO FOLLOW :

Race 3 Number 5 BROOKSY MONELLI : Ran on gamely to finish third amongst some very smart chasers.

Race 4 Number 6 IMMEN BALE : Was railing strongly before being blocked at a vital stage.

“Optical remains unbeaten for Stuart”

Lightly framed 26kg bitch Optical cashed in on box one tonight when she led throughout to win in a flying 22.44. Veteran chaser Adele Keeping having start 112, began like a rocket from box five but was out-mustered to the first turn by the fleet-footed Optical. Optical then charged away to win by five lengths in a time that is just a few lengths outside of the track record held by another Paul Stuart trained greyhound in Quartz Bale. Finishing third was the David Hobby prepared Kaytwo Monelli, two lengths behind Adele Keeping. Optical was sired by USA producer KC And All and is out of Wired For Speed, a bitch who recorded a sizzling 30.57 on the old Cannington track. Optical is a full sister to talented youngsters Rebel Cause, Love Me Tinder, Deberti and Applejack. She has won all four career starts by big margins and looks set to climb the grader’s tree in no time.
