“Nashstar drops maiden tag for Cook”
Speedy youngster Nashstar broke through for a win at his twelfth start tonight, leading all the way in the Free Entry Maiden over 302m. Owned by Brad Cook, Karl Hassan and G Esmond the son of Dyna Lachlan has shown promise at recent efforts over 405m before fading at the business end. Tonight’s drop in distance played into his hands and after a fast getaway he always looked the winner. He posted 17.58 and defeated Single Bullet by two lengths with Tick The Box a nose away in third position. Nashstar looks set for a bright career over short trips and who better to train than the ‘Short Course King’ Brad Cook. Later in the evening Cook won with Lakoda Jethro and has won a stack of races in the past with the likes of Beaver, Coccolicious, Cheeky Cyclone, Coco Joe, Kristy Maree, Ten Carat Lankan and kennel spearhead Ledaro Holly.
RACE 3 NUMBER 2 GOLDEN TYPHOON : Rocketed out of box two and recorded a slick 17.26. Looks to be back to his best.
RACE 8 NUMBER 6 ALKA CASEY : Finished like a rocket to win over 490m and looks to be a stayer in the making.
