20230829 – Cannington Tuesday

“Sailor Jim leads all the way for Michael Johnston”

Handy sprinter Sailor Jim cashed in on a fast jump tonight when he won the Essential Aircor Services Provincial Novice over 380m. The son of Bernardo out-mustered his rivals to the first turn and despite having the two favourites in hot pursuit he was able to stave them off and win by a length. The Enzo Crudeli trained Fennec Fox finished second and two lengths away third was the promising Sunset Hornet for David Hobby. Sailor Jim lost in a photo finish last Tuesday when pipped on the post by Horoscope after leading into the home straight. His previous form was okay without winning over 520m and the switch to 380m looks to be a lot more suitable at this stage of his career.


Race 2 Number 8 TORI SAVED ME : Appreciated another wide draw and remained unbeaten (3 from 3), winning by three lengths.

Race 4 Number 5 KISS ME AUGIE : Pushed hard at the first turn to find the front before winning in 22.01.
