20170202 – Mandurah Thursday

“Hobby lands Quinella with litter sisters”

It’s not often two full sisters Quinella any form of race but it occurred in tonight’s Mandurah Mail Novice over 302m. The David Hobby prepared Queenie Revenge (box 1) and Sunset Stella (box 5) were born in a February 2015 litter sired by Barcia Bale. Their mother Starlight Acacia has been a wonderful producer and the pair have only just turned two years of age. The speedy pups both flew from their respective boxes with Queenie Revenge making full use of the red box and enjoying an outright lead at the first turn. Sunset Stella was within a length as they turned for home but Queenie Revenge responded, scoring by 2.25 lengths in a solid time of 17.20. Five lengths away in third position was Freeway Blaster who returned the juicy place dividend of $5.80 with the WA TAB. Both Queenie Revenge and Sunset Stella are blessed with abundant early speed and as they mature will become stronger and hopefully win over longer journeys. Later in the evening another Barcia Bale sired bitch called Tatiana Monelli sizzled over 405m for Hobby, leading throughout in a blistering 22.68.
