“Getaway Sticks wins Maiden Final for Barry McPherson”

Coming in to tonight Getaway Sticks had started 17 times for a lean record of 0 wins, 8 seconds an 0 thirds. Despite drawing box one, with that non-winning record he was sent out at the juicy win fixed odds of $5.00. The son of Black Bear Lee began nicely from pole position and was a surprise leader after 100m. Odds-on favourite West On Outlaw was in hot pursuit and Miss Valentine wasn’t far away in third position. From that point Getaway Sticks made every post a winner and scored by two lengths in 22.10 over West On Outlaw who was unable to reel him in. Getaway Sticks’ trainer Barry McPherson has enjoyed a lot of success in the past with the likes of Ronray Dancer, Explicit Dancer, Talei Bond, Spanish Melody, Swispec and Sausage Fingers.

HOUNDS TO FOLLOW :

Race 2 Number 2 HIPPY TRAIL : Made steady ground on the winner and clocked a nice 30.15 on debut.

Race 3 Number 3 CHIPPIN’AWAY : Showed a lot of zip early before running second and looks better suited over 275m.
