“Kiss Me Linda qualifies fastest for Sandgroper Final”
Top shelf sprinter Kiss Me Linda made light work of her Sandgroper heat tonight, leading throughout in a fast 27.55 from box three. The fast beginner was heavily backed into $1.30 and didn’t let her supporters down, quickly establishing a buffer before recording a time that would win most Free For Alls over the 490m distance. The victory notched a hat-trick of wins after she won her previous two starts over 520m at Cannington. The daughter of Kinloch Brae ran second in the WA Oaks Final earlier this month and also was a Perth Cup finalist back in March. The Tania Thomas trained Spitting Venom ran a gallant second to her and was only beaten 2.75 lengths. The other three heat winners were Deberti (27.80), Venus And Mars (27.78) and Garbrandt (27.70).
