20230822 – Cannington Tuesday

“Halcyon Days notches a hat-trick of Cannington wins”

Handy sprinter Halcyon Days won his third successive race tonight when he led throughout in the Tommy Shelby At Stud Provincial 5 over 520m. The son of Zipping Garth caught the eye with a fast finishing second over 380m on August 4 and stepped up to 520m a week later. He won that race from box 8 in a smart 30.15 and repeated the dose a week later again from the pink draw in 30.17. This evening he rose to Provincial Class and took on a classy field including Inside Scoop but after another fast jump he scored in 30.08. Halcyon Days is raced by the David Harvey managed Double Bluff Syndicate and has now won 7 of his 21 career starts. He is prepared by Cosi Dagostino out of Banjup who has tasted plenty of success in the past with the likes of Storm Act, Elvis, Momentum, Ouchamp and Mephitidae.
