“Coldstream wins the first with Double Humphrey”

Dyna Double One youngster Double Humphrey stuck severe interference at his race debut back on June 22. He was stood down for racing for ten days by the on-course vet on that occasion and resumed tonight over 302m. From box one he drove through to lead his rivals before posting a smart 17.29 for Ravenswood trainer Derek Coldstream. The Enzo Crudeli prepared Lance Sunrise finished strongly to be the runner up and third was the Brad Cook trained Black Dotty. Double Humphrey is owned by Murray Hamilton and is out of former handy race bitch Lee’s Maggie. She was trained by Corey White and finished racing with 12 wins and 13 placings from 41 career starts including some very handy times at the Mandurah track. Later in the night Coldstream’s only other runner Turbo Charger won over 405m in a smart 23.04.

“Broome Time powers to another win for MacLean”

31kg black chaser Broome Time has always shown plenty of talent but has often failed to put himself in winning positions due to poor starts. This month the son of Brett Lee has improved his jumps and has now won two on the trot over 405m in the smart times of 22.71 and 22.78. This evening he found himself midfield at the first turn but only three lengths from the lead before steering to the outside and then charging away from his rivals. He really dashed away in the front straight and his official winning margin was five lengths. Damien Crudeli prepared both minor placegetters with Iolar second and Brooklyn Bridge back in third. Broome Time is owned by the Mason Otto managed Kao Syndicate and is trained out of Southern River by Ben MacLean.

HOUNDS TO FOLLOW :

Race 2 Number 1 MOMENT OF IMPACT : Overcame a fair getaway to win over 302m for Jackie Wilson.

Race 6 Number 3 JUNK YARD DARE : Put in a nice performance to be a close up third.
