“Hello I’m Donny handles red box to win over 302m”

Hello I’m Donny likes to use the width of the track in his races and from box one looked a bit of a risk in tonight’s Melbourne Cup Lunch Grade 4 over 302m. His four career wins had resulted from boxes 5 to 8 and his most recent victory occurred from box 8 when he maintained a wide path and circled his rivals. Tonight from the inside alley he bounded out quickly, held out race favourite Betty Gundi and despite coursing a bit wide as usual, was able to balance at the top of the straight and charge to the line. He posted 17.24 and scored by a length over a gallant Betty Gundi who did not give in. The North Yunderup based Nickanator ran on well to finish third. Hello I’m Donny is prepared by Shane Beard and has now started 32 times for 5 wins and 12 minor placings.


Race 5 Number 7 ST. KITTS : Displayed brilliant mid race muster to hit the lead and win by 8 lengths in 22.68.

Race 6 Number 3 CRUISER COIN : Hit the line hard and will surely break through for a victory soon.
