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.


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.

“Hey Bail wins her fourteenth race for Shane Beard”

Honest sprinter Hey Bail appreciated the drop back from Free For All company tonight when she led throughout to win the Mandurah Stockfeeds Mixed 4/5 over 302m. The daughter of Fear Zafonic flew out of box four and crossed to the rail ahead of a pack that bunched and squeezed each other out of contention at the first turn. While they were bumping Hey Bail increased her lead and although fading a little late scored by three lengths in 17.46. The David Hobby trained Sunset Versace finished second ahead of the Lexia Isaac prepared Gypsy Said Run. Hey Bail has now started 96 times for 14 wins and 23 minor placings. Pictured : Shane Beard


Race 4 Number 5 CHEVY SHEIKH : Battled on gamely and looks close to a win especially from a wide alley.

Race 5 Number 7 FABS GEM : Began a bit better and after taking the lead at half way stormed clear to win by seven lengths.

20180816 – Mandurah Thursday

“Ricky Walton magic sees him train the first two winners”

Dardanup trainer Ricky Walton only brought two greyhounds to the Mandurah track tonight and he left with two winners. Wise Jenson had only managed a couple of thirds from 22 career starts before tonight and gained a start as a reserve. He prevailed in a photo finish over 302m to break his maiden status at the juicy odds of $25.60 with the WA TAB. Wise Jenson is aptly owned by the Never Give Up Syndicate managed by Geoff Miller. Fifteen minutes later former Queenslander Tess The Best led throughout in dominant fashion, scoring easily and in the smart time of 17.39. She returned the lesser amount of $6.70 and looks to have plenty more wins in store. The daughter of Fernando Bale turned two last month and has now won 3 of 12 with her other two triumphs occurring over 331m at Albion Park in May.


Race 4 Number 5 CHICAGO NIGHTS : Ran on strongly to finish a close up third behind handy types.

Race 5 Number 5 EXPLOSIVE SMITH : Rattled home to almost snatch second and will win one soon.

“Gypsy Said Run breaks through for her first Mandurah victory”

Lexia Isaac prepared sprinter Gypsy Said Run improved on her poor track record when she scored over 302m from box seven. The daughter of Kinloch Brae began only fairly but with box eight empty and the dog in box six (Hart View Dicky) crashing down to the fence she was able to glide to an uncontested lead. The 27kg red brindle bitch posted 17.59 and won by three lengths over Bella Bomb and another length away third was Johncraigle. Gypsy Said Run had only managed one minor placing from her previous eight appearances at the Mandurah circuit. The win however took her overall career record to 7 wins from 51 starts and she has now earned over $9,000 in stake earnings.


Race 2 Number 5 JABBERIN’ MELODY : Showed plenty of early and mid race muster before being overhauled in the front straight.

Race 4 Number 4 JET’S STAR : Caught the eye late when able to snatch second over the 405m journey.

20180719 – Northam Thursday

“Phil Worthington Quinellas opening event”

Nambeelup trainer Phil Worthington produced first and second place getters in today’s Free Entry Thursday Maiden over 297m. The Kody Charles prepared Wind Power Dream was sent out as an odds on favourite from box two but didn’t begin with much gusto, allowing Queen Of Sparta to surge across and lead. She was having her twelfth career start and after being placed at her last three runs deserved a break through victory. Kennel mate Marapana railed through to second and gave chase but was beaten two lengths by Queen Of Sparta in 17.71. Another four lengths away in third position was the Bill Choules trained Go Gettem Santa. Queen Of Sparta only weighs in at 24kg but will win plenty more races with her early pace for her owners the Spartan Chasers Syndicate.


Race 2 Number 4 SWITCHEN SAVE : Exploded out of the boxes to lead throughout at 40/1.

Race 4 Number 2 MINI EARNER : Began cleanly and wasn’t far away, won’t take long to win one at Northam.
