“Promising youngster Cosmic Ox wins again in an awesome time”

Highly promising youngster Cosmic Ox recorded a sizzling 21.64 tonight when he overcame box eight to win the Get The TABtouch Novice over 380m. Despite weighing in at 36.3kg the son of Fabregas turns two in October and is just a baby. He ran first and second at his first two starts and tonight could not have been more impressive. Sent out at $2.20 from the unfavourable draw of box eight, he launched himself to the lead before posting a slick 21.64 and winning by nine lengths. The reserve Devine Tilly ran second ahead of Tiger Keeping who did well to run third after checking off the heels of Cosmic Ox at the first turn. Cosmic Ox is raced by Anthony Barranca and is trained out of Canning Vale by Jamie Marsh, he’s going to love Mandurah with a longer run to the first corner.


Race 2 Number 6 METAL BUSTER : Flew the boxes before scoring in sub 22 seconds for the in form Enzo Crudeli.

Race 6 Number 3 FABS GEM : Missed the kick before flying home for a narrow second in good time. She’s going to be good.

“Westdale Prince wins maiden final for Andrew McLaren”

Nambeelup trainer Andrew McLaren took out tonight’s Get The TABtouch Maiden Final from box five in what turned out to be a messy race. The son of Kinloch Brae exploded out of the boxes to lead and as he found the fence he squeezed up opponents as they entered the back straight. Westdale Prince was left six lengths in front of his closest pursuers Cosmic Ox and Sudoku Warrior. That pair collided and Bashful Zoey copped the backwash which caused her to take a harmless¬†fall. Westdale Prince made every post a winner and while the others all met with interference Westdale Prince’s winning time was an impressive 21.94. Cosmic Ox regrouped and ran on strongly to be beaten four lengths in second position and the Port Kennedy based Zipping Milly finished strongly for third. Westdale Prince is raced by Jai Jormanainen-Davis and has won 2 of 2 career starts for Nambeelup trainer Andrew McLaren. He has just turned two years of age and looks set to win a stack of races with his early speed clearly a huge asset.


Race 1 Number 7 ANYONE’S GUESS : Rocketed home to break his maiden status in 30.59 and looks to have staying potential.

Race 2 Number 5 ELEGANT CRISP : Came from last at the first turn to almost steal third over 380m.

“Zamazan strolls to strong Novice victory”

Southern River trainer Mick McLennan notched a double tonight when Zamazan scored over 520m against Provincial Novice company. The son of Premier Fantasy jumped well and settled second at the first turn before running past Nothing To Prove and winning by three lengths. The first leg of McLennan’s double was Bashful Zoey, a well backed maiden who led throughout over 380m. Zamazan took twelve starts to win a Maiden and that occurred over 490m at Mandurah back in May. Last Tuesday he led throughout at Cannington in 30.23 and tonight’s slightly slower time of 30.46¬†was affected by the wet weather. Bryan Wilson owns both Bashful Zoey and Zamazan and is sure to have plenty of fun with the pair.


Race 2 Number 2 HELLO I’M BIGGIE : Soldiered on strongly in the home straight to take a couple of lengths of the winner Bashful Zoey.

Race 3 Number 6 ZIPPING MILLY : Had excuses being posted wide but hit the line strongly to snatch third ahead of Easy Flyer.

“Tiger Keeping wins at WA debut for Brad Cook”

Speedy ‘Keeping’ greyhounds sent to WA from the Dubbo area of NSW have had a great history of winning plenty of races and accumulating lots of earnings. Tiger Keeping started twice over 318m at Dubbo in April for a third and a seventh before being sent to Brad Cook in WA by owner Charmaine Roberts. The son of Barcia Bale qualified last Tuesday over 380m in a fast 22.16 after showing great box manners and blinding early speed. Tonight he was well supported at his WA race debut from box seven and after a fair jump entered the back straight sharing the lead with Elegant Crisp and Hello I’m Biggie. The 36kg red brindle chaser then hustled to the lead and dashed clear of his rivals. The Warnbro based Dad’s Decision made late ground but left it too late, going down by half a length. Tiger Keeping’s time of 22.35 was slower than his trial but with more alacrity at box rise won’t take long to record something close to 22.00. With so many race opportunities these days at Northam, Mandurah and Cannington over short distances Tiger Keeping looks set to be another great money-spinner for connections.


Race 2 Number 2 FABS GEM : Was taken wide on entering the back straight before regrouping and winning her maiden by two lengths.

Race 3 Number 6 HOLD IT TOGETHER : Had excuses and kept coming to finish a gallant third and should break through soon.

Akachi displayed faultless box manners again and is sure to win plenty of races by shooting to an early lead and enjoying interference-free gallops. Her father Fernando Bale earned an astonishing $1,299,370 from just 44 career starts, winning 35 of them before being retired to stud.


Race 1 Number 6 FABS GEM : Rocketed home to run a very nice second behind Crafty Rama who recorded a fast 21.88.

Race 3 Number 7 DHUFISH : Lacks early zip but motored late to finish a close up fourth, follow over a longer journey.
