“Whiskey On Rocks rockets home for a powerful 380m victory”

Slow beginner Whiskey On Rocks cashed in on a clear passage to win tonight’s Tommy Shelby At Stud Provincial 5 over 380m. The daughter of Zipping Riot has always loved racing over 380m which is somewhat of a surprise given her below par box manners. This evening she dropped back to last as the field passed the catching pen but she was hard up against the rail and as her rivals fanned wide she was able to surge through into second position. Ronnie Ranger had flown across to set the pace but with just a three length lead at the top of the straight he looked vulnerable with the strong finishing Whiskey On Rocks closing in. The John Righetti prepared chaser stole the win by a neck (in 21.99) and a further four lengths away third was Flamboyant Lad. Whiskey On Rocks was the second leg of a training double after old marvel Fawn Roller had won earlier for the Coolup trainer.

HOUNDS TO FOLLOW :

Race 3 Number 2 MOMENT TO BOOGIE : Rocketed home along the fence to steal victory.

Race 4 Number 1 WEST ON FRANKY : Reigned supreme from box one and recorded a smart 30.24.
