“West On Cheryl Claims Kanyana Cup”

The Prime Trophies Kanyana Cup is a Provincial Grade 5 Series conducted over the 490m distance. The Final was conducted tonight and promising youngster Pepper Fire was sent out a warm favourite from box two. After a slow getaway though the Chris Halse prepared chaser settled near the rear and a win was out of the question. Kennel mate West On Cheryl flew out of box seven and was able to cross the field before setting up a four length lead over nearest rival Defy All Odds. Interference occurred behind the leading pair and it was clear that they had the Quinella in their keeping. Turning for home Defy All Odds hooked off West On Cheryl’s heels to challenge and it went down to the wire with West On Cheryl prevailing by a head. Ten lengths away in third place was Pepper Fire who tipped out Trickster Lumik. The winning time of 27.44 was outstanding and it gave Nambeelup trainer Chris Halse another feature victory. West On Cheryl is raced by Gary Weston and Craig Weston and now has 6 wins and 5 minor placings from her 14 career starts.
