20240201 – Mandurah Thursday

“Our Boy Doug charges into Dash Final for Ian Bunny”

Mandurah track specialist Our Boy Doug took full advantage of a good jump tonight when he took out the opening heat of The Dash over 300m. The son of Magic Sprite began beautifully out of box 6 and received a strong shepherd from Really Sirius (box 5) to take the lead before racing away to win by three lengths. He clocked a new PB of 16.96 and took his 300m record to an impressive 11 starts for 5 wins and 5 minor placings. With six heats being contested tonight all winners and the two fastest runners up progress to next Thursday’s final. The other heat winners were Black Salmon (16.81), Renegade Cochise (16.89), Mashle Wave (17.07), Rex Hunter (16.90) and Lite Monelli (16.75).

HOUNDS TO FOLLOW :

Race 1 Number 7 MORPHIN GRID : Showed explosive early and mid race speed again to make it 3 wins from 4 starts.

Race 5 Number 8 RENEGADE COCHISE : Was responsible for one of the greatest short-course victories of all time tonight.
