“Flake Monelli breaks Miata’s 647m track record”

Super stayer Flake Monelli (pictured) capitalised on drawing box one in tonight’s first heat of the Mandurah Middle Distance Challenge.

The daughter of Fernando Bale jumped well and enjoyed an uncontested lead before abandoning her pursuers with around 250m to gallop.

Kennel-mate and full brother Snickers Monelli tried his heart out to stay on her coat-tails but her elite endurance saw her dash clear and win by ten lengths.

Her time of 36.22 lowered Miata’s track record (36.40) that was recorded back in December of 2011 by three lengths.

She has now won 19 of 39 for David Hobby and will start a warm favourite in next Friday’s final.

“Dusty Mac turns back the clock for McLennan”

Former top grade chaser Dusty Mac wound back the clock tonight when he thrashed his opponents in the Maiolo Constructions Mixed 5/6 over 405m.

He announced himself as a highly promising youngster back in April 2018 when he led throughout over 405m in a scintillating time of 22.54.

He followed up with some sub thirty second runs at Cannington including a second to champion sprinter West On Augie when beaten by just half a length.

However the son of Dyna Double One lost all form from March of last year and only managed one minor placing from 22 starts and that was a third at Northam.

Tonight he drew awkwardly in box six but after the $1.38 favourite Shinboner Glory missed the kick by ten lengths he was able to drive to the front and set the pace.

His opponents simply couldn’t go with him and he won by an ever-expanding nine lengths over Yanderra Jimmy and Zipping Simon.

His time of 22.89 was also terrific given he hadn’t won in such a long time and the fact that he is four years and five months old which puts him well in to the veteran category.

He was now won thirteen races for Kylie McLennan who also prepared the mother Roxy Mac who was a winner of eighteen races herself.

HOUNDS TO FOLLOW :

Race 3 Number 2 SPRAY AND WIPE : Began like a rocket and gave cheek against some classy customers.

Race 5 Number 3 HARPER’S HERO : Made up many lengths on a very handy chaser in Canya Go Wild.

“Vitalogy breaks maiden for Chris Halse”

Nicely bred youngster Vitalogy overcame a fair jump to post a tidy maiden victory in tonight’s Sign Strategy over 405m.

The son of Knocka Norris zoomed to the lead in the middle stages before recording 23.17 and winning by more than a length.

Outsider One Eye Blink who set the pace held on for second position a nose in front of race favourite and first starter Sunset Chernobyl.

Vitalogy’s mother Times Square was a brilliant race bitch, winning 21 races and over $134,000 in stakes.

HOUNDS TO FOLLOW :

Race 1 Number 6 AMAZING ANNE : Hit the line with power in her legs and is one to follow.

Race 3 Number 4 FERNANDO MAN : Withstood multiple challenges to basically lead throughout over 302m.

“Steve Monelli wins The Sandgroper”

Nambeelup based trainer David Hobby took out another feature race tonight when Steve Monelli overcame an awkward box and wet conditions to win The Sandgroper final in 27.49.

After running second in his heat the son of Fernando Bale reeled in Veyron Star before dashing away in the home straight to win by two lengths.

The Greg Martin prepared Harper’s Hero surged home for a strong second ahead of the Chris Halse trained West On Olvee who finished third.

Steve Monelli’s mother Serena Fly High was a terrific race bitch, accumulating twenty career wins and over $95,000 in earnings.

The Sandgroper trophy is the fifth David Hobby has won after winning in 2007 with Showpiece, in 2013 with Houdini Monelli, in 2016 with Senator Monelli and in 2017 with Mendoza Monelli.

Tonight’s triumph was also Hobby’s 198th of the calendar year.

HOUNDS TO FOLLOW :

Race 1 Number 6 JUST CLYDE : Won impressively first up from Queensland in a fast 17.16.

Race 4 Number 2 INCREDIBLE HERO : Surprisingly found the lead and posted a terrific all the way win at 40/1.
