“David Hobby wins the Mandurah Oaks again”

Sunset Serengeti looks set for a big career in the care of David Hobby. The daughter of Hard Style Rico provided Hobby with his fourth victory in the Mandurah Oaks after winning previously in 2001 (Groovy Model), 2009 (Disturbia) and in 2013 (Sharon Monelli). Sunset Serengeti overcame plenty of interference to win her heat from box six and the slow time of 27.75 was a poor reflection on her magnificent performance. This evening from box two she avoided traffic by leaping to the front and scoring in deluxe fashion. The winning margin was a comfortable three lengths over kennel-mate Sunset Hornet and four lengths away third was outsider Lip Tricks. Her time of 26.98 was elite.

HOUNDS TO FOLLOW :

Race 1 Number 1 MRS CROPLEY : Mustered like the wind from box one to lead all the way in 17.06.

Race 3 Number 6 ALL ABOUT MARBLE : Stormed home to cause an upset and looks ready for a rise in distance.
