“Jen Thompson Magic”

Race Two tonight produced an upset result when outsider Chrissy’s Double improved at box rise and led throughout at $18. The short-courser had been unplaced at her last 6 outings and was slowly away at her last 5 over the distances of 297m and 302m. The daughter of El Grand Senor bucked that trend this evening when she pounced out of box 3 and found the front at juicy odds. The Kylie McLennan trained Lil’ Miss Minnie was having her first run this year and motored home to challenge late, but fell short by half a head. Chrissy’s Double is prepared by Southern River based trainer Jen Thompson and has now won 12 of 59 career starts. Thompson has enjoyed success in the past with the likes of Around A Buck, Contessa Gundi, Director, Harvester, Miss Hendrix, Obe Obe and kennel stalwart Sky Shadow.

HOUNDS TO FOLLOW :

RACE 1 NUMBER 3 BELLA’S MIRACLE : Made up many lengths at the business end to be an eye-catching second.

RACE 3 NUMBER 1 RIVERSIDE SMOKEY : Looked inexperienced but showed she has a good engine and will win a maiden very soon.
