“Duck Norris turns on the jets for Michael Rees”
Former NSW sprinter Duck Norris put in a terrific performance tonight when he took out the Elders Insurance Provincial Novice over 405m.
The son of El Grand Senor turned on the afterburners at the first turn to surge away from his rivals and set up a nice victory.
He straightened six lengths clear and although tired over the last thirty metres he held on to win by three lengths.
Chasing Lomar made late ground to finish a clear second and a neck away third was Jenny Hook.
Duck Norris was unplaced at his first four starts in this state before tonight’s ‘coming of age’ performance.
HOUNDS TO FOLLOW :
Race 1 Number 7 DODGEM BARRY : Improved sharply, winning by seven lengths in 22.85.
Race 4 Number 3 TORZA : Mustered brilliantly to win again in 22.71.
