20231207 – Mandurah Thursday

“Wide runner Pocono breaks through for first win in the west”

Former NSW chaser Pocono was prominent throughout before winning tonight’s Choicechem Country Novice over 400m. The daughter of Cosmic Rumble hadn’t won for 16 starts but was sent out as the second favourite given her two recent thirds at the Mandurah track. She was challenged strongly in the home straight by Go Seek Isla but found enough to score by half a length. Damien Crudeli prepared both minor placegetters namely Go Seek Isla (2nd) and Circle The Sea (3rd). Pocono is trained out of Wundowie by Glen Currie who has enjoyed plenty of success in the past with the likes of Bones McCoy, Trapper Wal, Fire Fly Ted, Fire Fly Carole, Zipper Zip Zip and Try Catch Me.

HOUNDS TO FOLLOW :

Race 1 Number 7 SHINY TRUE COLOUR : Lost narrowly at the juicy TAB odds of $45.00.

Race 2 Number 3 SUDOKU FREDDY : Worked home strongly to be beaten a neck in good time.
