20150313 Mandurah Friday

By Taylor Courtland

Crashing Packs won the Kanyana Cup Final over 490m at TABtouch Park Mandurah tonight.

The Steve Shinners-trained chaser jumped well from box two, but found himself chasing Hallpack Turbo into the first turn.

Hallpack Turbo still led around the home turn, but was overrun when Crashing Packs hit top gear 100m from the winning post.

Race favourite Stanga Doug was the strongest to the line and halfway down the home straight, looked a chance to overrun the first two runners.

He finished third, just one length behind Crashing Packs and Hallpack Turbo who hung on for second.

It was career win number eight for the two-year-old chaser from 15 career starts while also improving his record to three wins from five starts in the black and white rug.

Crashing Packs won in a time of 27.47, a personal best time, to take home the $5000 winners cheque.
