“Buster The Brute claims Chase Final”
Jarrahdale based trainer Krystal Shinners won tonight’s feature event, the Essential Aircor Services Chase Final worth $8,000 with super sprinter Buster The Brute. Last week the son of Banjo Boy overcame early interference to charge home and sneak into the final by finishing second in his heat. Tonight he was sent out as a $2.20 favourite and after a moderate jump had plenty of work to do at the first turn. Speedsters Bundi Banner and Turbo Fun were contesting the lead while Buster The Brute found the rail and cut the corner with pace, taking the lead. He then bounded away in the home straight, increasing his margin with every long stride. He recorded a mighty 22.44 and scored by four lengths over Chevy’s Entry (second) and Turbo Fun (third). Buster The Brute’s winning cheque saw him eclipse $100,000 in prize money for his owners, the Bust Em Up Syndicate managed by Steve Shinners.
