“Sleepy George wins on debut for Reichard”
Herron based trainer Jodie Reichard took out tonight’s second event, the Friday Buffet Maiden over 405m. Sleepy George, a black son of Cosmic Rumble had won two Mandurah qualifying trials over 405m in 22.69 and 490m in 27.69 before having his first start this evening. He began cleanly from pole position before surging through to take the lead at the first turn. From that point he increased his lead with every stride and ended up scoring by five lengths in a smart 22.86. West On Aries finished powerfully for second and a half length away in third was outsider Wise La Nina. Reichard has enjoyed plenty of success in the past with the likes of Loony Moony, Taylor’s Trio, Topper Holms, Kado’s Dream and Draw For Doe.
