20150227 Mandurah Friday

The A1 Salvage and Hardware Great Western Trophy is headed to Collie after Stangafied won by the smallest of margins at Mandurah tonight.
It was a strong win by the Jason Marley-trained chaser over race favourite Downlight and Mike The Knight in third.
Favourite punters would have been licking their lips after Downlight sprung the boxes from the wide alley and led heading into the turn of the 405m feature.
Stangafied, a black dog by El Grand Senor, hugged the rails and made a length and a half on the leader in the home straight.
A photo was required to separate the two chasers as Stangafied stopped the clock at a time of 22.59.
The win is due to a great training performance from Marley who had the dog in great condition first-up a week ago in the heats.
Stangafied, first-up after almost six months, qualified for the Great Western final with a victory over Cosmic Hope.
