“Nobelium wins again for Erenshaw”

Explosive breaker Nobelium defeated a red hot field tonight when she led throughout to win the Giddyup Quaddie Time Mixed 4/5 over 405m.

“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.


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.

“Hello Kelly notches a hat-trick for Beamish”

Vastly improved sprinter Hello Kelly made it three wins on the trot tonight when she led throughout to win over 405m. The daughter of Shakey Jakey relished outside draws at her previous two starts when victorious in 22.96 and 23.06. Tonight she matched the mustering power of Tyson Gundi (box 7) and drove clear leaving the back straight, scoring in a very fast 22.64. Tyson Gundi was the runner up beaten 2.25 lengths and a length away third was Bago Coops who made up many lengths after his usual moderate getaway. Hello Kelly is owned by Rodney Affleck and is trained out of Southern River by Wayne Beamish. She has only managed 1 win from her first 20 starts but has now won 5 of 25.


Race 2 Number 4 SPARKY ROY : Dominated from ‘go to whoa’, leading throughout over 302m in 17.17.

“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.


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.

Two year old first starter Consortium exploded out of the boxes to win tonight’s Essential Refrigeration Services Maiden heat in a slick 22.59. The son of American sire KC And All crossed equal favourite Dove’s Cry (box one) at the first turn before surging away to win by six lengths. The Cosi Dagostino prepared Dove’s Cry held second and another five lengths away third was the Brad Cook trained Fairy Monelli. Krystal Shinners trains Consortium who is raced by owners from the St. Norberts Football Club. He weighs in at a hefty 35kg and looks set for a very bright future.


Race 2 Number 5 BIG DOVE : Ran on gamely to be the runner up and hit the line with power in his legs.
