“Vitalogy wins his fourth in a row for Halse”

Vitalogy turns two next month and chalked up his fourth consecutive victory in tonight’s Friday Buffet Stake over 405m. The son of Knocka Norris began cleanly from box one before zooming through on the inside and leading throughout in a flying 22.60. Three nights earlier he scored over 490m after displaying explosive mid race muster. This evening he saluted by a whopping ten lengths and recorded a wonderful time for a greyhound of his tender age. Black Cat Bar chased him home for second ahead of outsider Gentleman Fox. Vitalogy was named after one of the great Pearl Jam albums and is a full brother to fellow handy youngsters Chloe’s The Boss, One Times Square, Pacemaker Pete and West On Harmony.

“Mitchem produces unlikely Quinella”

North Baandee based trainer Trudi Mitchem prepared first and second in tonight’s Mandurah Mail Grade 6 over 302m. Kabarangi had only managed 2 wins from her 92 previous starts but made full use of box one, zooming through near the fence to win by a length. Her kennel-mate Simply Gifted followed her through near the inside to be the runner up and two lengths away third was the well backed Cranky Dave who was posted wide from box eight. Kabarangi is a three and a half year old who recently improved over 490m at Mandurah when third in a handy 28.05. The Mitchem Quinella on the numbers 1 and 2 returned $29.90 with the WA TAB.


Race 4 Number 1 TAKERS TO VEGAS : Scored impressively and clocked a sizzling 17.03.

Race 5 Number 4 ROLL OUT : Flew at his Mandurah debut and posted 17.07.

“Shantaram creates big impression first up”

First starter Shantaram could not have been more impressive tonight, leading throughout over 490m in a lightning fast 27.38. From box six he flew from the boxes and crossed the inside division easily before carving out one of the quickest runs of the year. The regally bred Desire Monelli chased him home and was beaten six lengths and another four lengths away third was Western Run. Shantaram is raced by the Mark Adams managed Crisis Creek Syndicate and was named after the 2003 novel written by Gregory Roberts. He is trained by Nambeelup based trainer Adam Smithson and looks set for a very bright future.


Trial 2 Number 1 PHANTOM MONELLI : Scored impressively and clocked a smart 22.86 for David Hobby.

Race 1 Number 1 STARLIGHT GUESS : Improved sharply to win in 22.59 after being placed in just 1 of her first 7 starts.
