20180918 – Mandurah Tuesday

“Optical shoots the lights out at first race start”

Nambeelup trainer Paul Stuart unveiled another promising youngster tonight when juvenile Optical led throughout to win the Better Your Bet TABtouch Maiden over 405m. The daughter of American sire KC And All won her Qualifying Trial last Tuesday by a whopping sixteen lengths and recorded the handy winning time of 22.90. This evening she was sent out at the prohibitive odds of $1.10 with TABtouch and after beginning like a gazelle made every post a winner in an amazing 22.59. The Wayne Beamish trained Hello Darcey finished a distant second, some eleven lengths astern of the winner. Optical is out of former handy race bitch Wired For Speed who won nine of her twenty career starts including a 490m victory at Mandurah in a flying 27.51. Optical turns two years old in November and looks set for a very bright future with her blinding early speed. Pictured : Paul Stuart

20180913 – Mandurah Thursday

“Max profit wins Dash Final for Corey White”

Super sprinter Max Profit added to the silverware in his cabinet tonight when he reeled in Sunset Mouse to win the time-honoured Dash Final. The Dash Series is the only 300m feature event staged in WA all year and was first run back in 1981. There were some awesome performances in the heats last Thursday and none better than Max Profit who qualified fastest in 16.88. He was sent out favourite in the final from box four and when speedster Sunset Mouse flew out of box three he received plenty of mustering room. Sunset Mouse led to the top of the straight but Max Profit overpowered her to win by three lengths in wet conditions. He posted a great time of 16.96 and chalked up his thirty first lifetime victory, taking his career earnings over $159,000 for Nambeelup trainer Corey White and owners F and C Stanley. Miss Bamsy, last year’s Mandurah Cup winner flew home for third placing after being posted wide in the early stages.

HOUNDS TO FOLLOW :

Race 4 Number 4 CANAL TURN : Burst out of the boxes to lead throughout in 17.30 for Lake Clifton trainer John Cole.

Race 5 Number 2 HEY BAIL : Copped a few bumps but soldiered on well for a solid second.

“It’s The Horse relishes Mandurah return”

Leading Nambeelup based trainer Enzo Crudeli opted to nominate sprinter It’s The Horse for Mandurah this week and it paid dividends. Having only managed 1 minor placing from his last 5 starts at Cannington the speedster drew box one in the Get Your Quaddie On 405m Free For All. The John Iwanyk prepared Bontem Delly exploded out of box five and took the initial lead but It’s The Horse was able to hold out the rest of the field and settle in second position. At half way the 36kg black dog made his move, leveling up along side of the 26kg female Bontem Delly. They straightened in unison but his stamina won out in the end and he pulled away to win by a length. The time of 22.98 was rock solid in the showery conditions and three lengths away third was race favourite Yuup who had suffered early interference. It’s The Horse has now started 44 times for 14 wins, 13 minor placings and over $43,000 in stakes.

HOUNDS TO FOLLOW :

Race 3 Number 7 SKETCHY MATT : Appreciated the wide alley when victorious at 15/1.

Race 5 Number 3 YUUP : Made up many lengths to salvage a placing by running third after severe first turn interference.

“Ookinaki Flyer continues awesome run of consistent form for Crudeli”

Ookinaki Flyer would be a dream to own in the greyhound racing game. She races often and this week won twice in the space of four days. On Tuesday she led throughout at Mandurah in 22.95 and tonight she repeated the dose in 22.81. The daughter of Fabregas is owned by the Ten Eighty Syndicate and at the age of two and a half has started 43 times for 8 wins, 11 seconds, 13 thirds and over $30,000 in earnings. This evening Humble was heavily backed into favourite from box one and after a brilliant jump looked hard to beat. However Ookinaki Flyer had also begun well from box three and as they reached the first turn had more mustering power and zoomed to the front. As Ookinaki Flyer lengthened Humble’s heels were clipped from behind which allowed Ookinaki Flyer to win by six lengths. Flying Urkal caught the eye out wide to grab second for Andrew McLaren ahead of the David Hobby trained Kili Monelli.

HOUNDS TO FOLLOW :

Race 2 Number 2 JIMBO : Made up many lengths to finish a close up third so follow especially if he draws wide.

Race 4 Number 7 URANIUM : Made up many lengths to snatch third after settling near the tail of the field.
