20200111 – Cannington Saturday – Summer Chase

INVERSION (Collision- Solar Pak) scored an upset victory in the final of the Greyhounds WA Summer Chase after the race favourite Flake Monelli found a heap of trouble soon after the start. Once the red brindle dog found the lead he was able to draw away from his rivals and defeat kennel mates Dyna Oscar and Werner Bale by 7 lengths in 35.17. The win was the first for trainer Enzo Crudeli in the 600 metre feature final.

MOMENT TO TWELVE (Collision- Midnight Moments) recorded back to back weeks in the same week after scoring a 6 length win over King Ranji in 22.03. The Sarah Appleton trained bitch won on Wednesday before backing up to record her 5th win from 17 career starts. The win also helped the NSW Wildlife Rescue fund with Community TAB donating $500 for every number 1 dog that won on the program.

CINDY’S OLIVER (Fernando Bale- Claretown Cindy) ran home strongly to claim the leader Hostile Guess in the home straight and record a 1 3/4 length win in 30.12. The Joe Dailly trained dog recently arrived across from Victoria and has won at his past 2 starts.

GRACE ALI (My Bro Fabio- Born Ali) was too strong over the concluding stages for kennel mate and leader Kiss Me Linda, going on to score by 1 3/4 lengths in 29.94. The Chris Halse trained bitch has been racing over longer journeys recently and once settling so close to the leader was always going to be hard to beat.

ROCKSTAR PATRIOT (Fernando Bale- Glory Of Love) returned to the track, after an absence of 5 months through injury, with a barnstorming finish to win first up. A brilliant training performance to have the Gr 1 Galaxy winner return to the track in such style by Paul Stuart, the black dog defeated Rappa Flash by a length in 30.17.
