“Olivia Benson delivers over 647m”

Highly promising potential staying bitch Olivia Benson (pictured) made every post a winner in tonight’s NPB Security Grade 5 over 647m. The daughter of Bekim Bale dead-heated for second in the WA Oaks last month behind Milly Keeping and has won plenty of races over 490m. Tonight Nambeelup trainer Darren Rowe stepped her up to 647m and after a poor jump she found the lead after fifty metres. From that point she was able to zoom away and win by ten lengths in a mighty 36.75. That time is less than six lengths outside of the great Miata’s track record (36.40). Veteran chaser and kennel mate Jokes Aside hit the line hard for second, nosing out Swift Ripper who finished third. Olivia Benson has now started 26 times for 5 wins, 13 minor placings and over $27,000 in earnings.

HOUNDS TO FOLLOW :

Race 3 Number 1 SHE KNOWS FABIO : Displayed lots of energy at her first start in the west.

Race 5 Number 6 BETTY’S LEGACY : Hit the line strongly and wasn’t beaten far in fast time.
