“Sunset Viper improves sharply for David Hobby”

Nicely bred youngster Sunset Viper began a lot faster tonight from box seven when he led throughout to win over 400m. A quality field of novices were assembled in the KCR Pet Transport sponsored event but after a fast exit and a quick first section of 6.29 Sunset Viper found the lead. He sailed away to score by three lengths and clocked a new PB of 22.43 for David Hobby. Outsider Stylish In Black ran second for Diane Carmody and the Kody Charles trained Tick Tick Tick finished third. Sunset Viper had only managed 1 win and 1 third from his first 8 starts but will have gained plenty of confidence from tonight’s all the way win.


Race 2 Number 1 OHANA RANADI : Led throughout to make it 2 wins from 2 starts in WA.

Race 4 Number 7 WEST ON MILEY : Worked hard from the wide draw to take the lead in the middle stages and win by four lengths.

“Taco Time wins again for Terry Erenshaw”

Promising sprinter Taco Time proved last week’s debut maiden win was no fluke when she led throughout again over 380m. The 27kg fawn daughter of Barcia Bale scorched out of the boxes last Tuesday and clocked a sizzling first sectional of 6.39 before winning by six lengths in 22.02. This evening on a rain affected surface she worked to the lead in the back straight before winning by one length in 22.24. Whilst she did look tired late she was never going to lose and her terrific box manners and early speed will see her win plenty of races. Outsider Pop’s Gift ran second for Phil Worthington and another half a length away third was the Michael Rees prepared Greek Sensation. Taco Time turns two in October and her mother It’s A Maybe was lightly raced but was a full sister to quality chasers Dark Titan, Red Titan and It’s A Babe.


Race 3 Number 6 ROMP TIN : Hustled quickly to find the lead from box six before winning on debut in 22.13.

Race 4 Number 2 SIMPLICITY : Did everything right from box two and scored by seven lengths.

BUSTER MOON (Fernando Bale-Rockabye Izzy) recorded back to back victories when he recovered from a moderate start to rail through and find the lead into the back straight. The Dwayne Jovanovic trained dog cleared out to win by 8 1/4 lengths in 30.11.

GRAY GREY (Aussie Infrared- Amo Bailar) led from box 7 and never gave her rivals a look at the arm with a 3 1/4 length Maiden win over Fit In Five in 16.17. The Jodie Reichard trained bitch was having just her 4th career start and was placed first up over the 275 metres the week before.

TACO TIME (Barcia Bale-It’s A Maybe) pinged out of the boxes and led throughout on debut over the 380 metres. The Terry Erenshaw trained youngster defeated Chippin’ Away by 6 lengths in 22.02. The fawn bitch doesn’t turn two years of age until October.

CROSSING (Mepunga Blazer-South Coast Elle) was impressive winning his Maiden by 10 lengths over Brockton Lover in a slick 21.72. The Kevin Phillips trained dog had no luck on debut back in early June before recording the brilliant win second up.
