“Black Cat Bar breaks losing sequence of 14 for MacLean”
The Fernando Bale sired Black Cat Bar overcame box seven to win tonight’s Love The Chase Grade 6 over 490m.
He set the pace at his previous Cannington start when reeled in over 520m by Jackpot Jill and had been placed in 3 of his 6 Mandurah appearances.
After a moderate jump he took the lead at the 200m mark before surging clear.
The Graeme Hall prepared Yanderra Mick gave strong pursuit but couldn’t catch Black Cat Bar who won by half a length.
The North Baandee based Kabarangi finished a close up third and the reserve Whizzing was an eye-catching fourth.
Black Cat Bar is trained at Southern River by Ben MacLean and has now started 50 times for 5 wins and 20 minor placings.
HOUNDS TO FOLLOW :
Race 4 Number 2 HIGH TENSILE : Improved at box rise and won easily in 23.04.
Race 5 Number 10 WHIZZING : Hit the line very hard.
