“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.
