“Rosie Cristalle cashes in on interference-free run to win her maiden”

Patience paid off this evening for Nambeelup trainer Phil Worthington when pint-sized bitch Rosie Cristalle scored over 405m. The 25kg daughter of Kinloch Brae had struck severe trouble at her last four starts at the Mandurah track resulting in just one minor placing. Tonight from box one she drove through to be third at the first turn before over-powering the likes of Blue Diablo and Zipping Ginger in the home straight. The Glen Price trained Zipping Ginger finished second ahead of Blue Diablo who had led for most of the journey. Rosie Cristalle had only managed three minor placings from her first eleven career starts but with tonight’s confidence boost is sure to handle the rise to graded company. Worthington has recently been winning plenty of races with star 302m Thursday night performer Kaos Be Cool. In the past he has put the polish on handy types Sin City Girl, Beaufort Bomber, Calahan Rocks, Dumb Bullett, Dibley, Magic Mundy and Silly Sonia.

HOUNDS TO FOLLOW :

Race 1 Number 2 HIGH DISTORTION : Broke his maiden status impressively over 405m for Eric Campana.

Race 3 Number 8 WESTDALE ANNE : Dominated a handy field from box 8, winning in a flying 22.72.

“No Added Sugar powers home to win”

Noted strong finisher No Added Sugar unleashed a strong surge to reel in his rivals and take out tonight’s A1 Salvage and Hardware Grade 5 over 405m. The son of On Coin missed the kick as he usually does and settled in the back half of the field. The well supported Clooney set the pace but folded up in the front straight allowing No Added Sugar and Ezi Pick to overtake him in the last fifty metres. No Added Sugar is prepared by Nambeelup trainer Kylie McLennan and this evening snapped a losing sequence of 19. Harrisdale based trainer Lexia Isaac trained both minor place-getters with Ezi Pick second ahead of the fading Clooney. No Added Sugar’s career record now stands at 56 career starts for 7 wins, 20 minor placings and over $22,000 in earnings. He is from the same litter as Just A Dreamer, Need More Coin and Pour Some Sugar.

HOUNDS TO FOLLOW :

Race 2 Number 8 SAUSALITO : Improved sharply with mid race speed to score by three lengths.

Race 3 Number 7 OLYMPIC MARINER : Ran on strongly for another solid placing and deserves to win one soon.

“King Tony chalks up his fifteenth victory”

Mandurah track specialist King Tony put in a fine performance tonight when he led throughout to win the Quaddie Time Stake over 405m. The son of Cosmic Rumble turns three years old in March and has now won 15 of 48 career starts. The 32kg fawn dog quickly mustered past his speedy opponents to find an outright lead before powering away to score by two lengths. Veteran chaser Cosmic Malteze ran on gamely for second at his 112th lifetime outing. The Uduc based Brock Tonic did well to finish third after a tardy getaway. King Tony is trained out of Southern River by Jen Thompson and is racing in peak form with a recent Cannington win also over 380m. Tonight’s time of 22.97 was very impressive along with his sizzling first sectional of 6.66 to the first turn. Tonight’s winner’s cheque of $2,150 takes his career earnings over $35,000.

HOUNDS TO FOLLOW :

Trial 2 Number 5 POCKETFUL : Rocketed out of the yellow box before recording a promising 22.99.

Race 2 Number 7 BAGO COOPS : Overcame another moderate getaway to win his maiden in powerful fashion.

“Atlantic Li soars over 405m”

Up and coming short-courser Atlantic Li put in a dominant performance in tonight’s Essential Refrigeration Services Grade 4 to score by three lengths. The speedy Bontem Delly set the pace before being joined and headed at half way by Atlantic Li. Race favourites Winsome Bossman and Governess both began only fairly before finding trouble at the first turn. Atlantic Li powered away to win in a fast 22.71 over Bontem Delly and Governess hit the line hard for third place. The winning time is extremely slick especially for a Tuesday night fixture. Atlantic Li is owned by T. Mulik and M. Rylands and is trained out of Banjup by Cosi Dagostino. She has now won 8 of her 22 career starts and earned over $27,000.

HOUNDS TO FOLLOW :

Race 1 Number 1 TRUDY KEEPING : Led throughout from box one to post a handy 28.28 over the 490m journey.

Race 3 Number 2 BONTEM DELLY : Is racing in career best form and will pinch one soon.

“Erenshaw dominates Mandurah”

Southern River trainer Terry Erenshaw nominated four greyhounds to race on Tuesday night at Mandurah’s Provincial Class meeting. All four greyhounds produced terrific performance to win their respective races and collectively net the kennel $8400 in stake money, not including the $50 starting fees. Promising youngster Rebel Cause got the ball rolling in the first race, flying out of box 7 and leading throughout in 22.98. Kennel stalwart Governess relished box 1 and after settling third in the middle stages rounded up her rivals to score by a head in 23.16. She has now started 55 times for 10 wins, 10 seconds, 10 thirds and $32,000 in earnings. Similarly named chasers Niobium and Nobelium won later in the program, clocking 23.07 and 23.11 respectively. Erenshaw has been one of WA’s leading trainers for a long time  and training 4 out of 4 at a Provincial Class meeting is a fantastic effort. His team has been spearheaded in the past by the likes of Blue Goose, Zini’s Gump, Buddy Be Cool, Milly Keeping, Doc Hudson, Timmy Mac and Smooth.
