“Sand Cruiser sizzles over 300m for Damien Crudeli”

Sand Cruiser hadn’t raced since April 2023 when he finished down the track in a 509m event at Northam. Last Thursday he completed a Steward’s Trial over 300m and recorded a fast 16.99 over the 300m journey at Mandurah. The son of My Redeemer had only managed 1 victory from his 17 career starts when last in work but on the strength of his trial time was sent out a $3.00 favourite tonight. He began swiftly and quickly took an outright lead before sailing away to win by five lengths in a blistering time of 16.88. He is raced by Mandy Crudeli and trained by Damien Crudeli and given the terrific time a rise in class and distance will be on the cards. It’s also an elite training effort to have a dog off for ten months and deliver a performance like this, regardless of the grade/distance.

HOUNDS TO FOLLOW :

Race 3 Number 5 FULL OF SURPRISES : Burst home to win over 405m for Kylie McLennan.

Race 5 Number 2 TARZAN : Caught the eye with a strong third over 488m.
