20200731 – Mandurah Friday

“Incredible Ninja wins again for Fran Farrell”

Trained out of Harvey by Fran Farrell, Incredible Ninja (pictured) made every post a winner to take out tonight’s A1 Salvage and Hardware Novice over 405m.

The son of Barcia Bale turns two in December and looks to be well above average.

After winning his maiden at last week’s Sunday meeting in 23.11 he basically repeated the dose this evening clocking a smart 23.12.

The Bakers Hill based Wise Lightning gave pursuit but couldn’t reel him back and fell two lengths short at the finish line.

Sausilito notched her third consecutive minor placing in finishing third but extended her losing sequence to a whopping 61.

It’s astonishing that given she has only won once she has earned $11,500 from her twenty one minor placings.

Incredible Ninja is raced by the husband/wife team of Fran and Ben Farrell who have enjoyed plenty of success in the past with the likes of Incredible Hero, Incredible Bella, Incredible Bee and Full Soot.

HOUNDS TO FOLLOW :

Race 3 Number 7 CANYA GO WILD : Had plenty of excuses and will bounce back at his next start.

Race 4 Number 4 DUCK NORRIS : Stormed to the front at the first turn before flying away to win by seven lengths.

“Sheriff Max pulls off betting plunge”

Former Victorian Sheriff Max was heavily backed from box eight to win tonight’s Mandurah Stockfeeds sponsored Grade 6 over 405m.

The son of Black Magic Opal ran second at his previous run over 405m and clocked a smart 22.88.

The betting support saw him open up at $2.40 fixed odds before jumping at the skinny odds of $1.45.

He didn’t let his supporters down, zooming around his opponents to reach the lead before scoring by seven lengths in 22.87.

Owned by the Easi Beats Syndicate and trained by Pete Brown, he has now started 37 times for 5 wins and 17 minor placings.

HOUNDS TO FOLLOW :

Race 2 Number 8 SIMPLY QUICK : Zoomed around rivals from box 8 to win impressively in 23.02.

Race 5 Number 6 DASH FOR CASH : Caused a boil-over when she led throughout over 490m in 27.77.
