“Bracton wins by ten lengths for Shane Beard”

Northam specialist Bracton put in a ‘blinder’ tonight when taking out the Evening In The Valley Country Novice over 297m. The son of Hooked On Scotch began moderately before out-mustering his rivals to the first turn and finding the outright lead. He then shot away from the pack and continued to increase his margin with every stride in the front straight. He scored by a whopping ten lengths and clocked a new PB of 17.28 which was three lengths quicker than the 17.46 he posted in May. The Brad Mitchem prepared pair of Not An Option and Simply Beat That filled the minor placings from boxes two and one respectively. Shane Beard has enjoyed lots of success in the past with the likes of Mindoro Miss, Franc Monelli, Matty’s Girl, Cees Little Sis, Furious Lies and Kridon Kavorka.


Race 3 Number 7 PAYAKAROON : Broke through for his first Northam win in a smart 17.21.

Race 4 Number 4 SAMMY CAN BROWSE : Led throughout over 509m in a swift 29.49.
