20170705 – Cannington Wednesday

TROUPER MONELLI (Fernando Bale- Bingle Monelli) led from box 8 and recorded an impressive 13 1/4 length win in the opening heat of the Winter Maiden Classic. The David Hobby trained youngster clocked a PB 30.35 on a rain soaked track.

CANYA CONNOR (Fernando Bale- Rinoa Bale) also crossed from box 8 and settled behind the leader Frida Monelli before claiming her on the line to win by a head in 30.51. The Steve Withers trained youngster was having his first race start at Cannington.

EXONERATED (Cosmic Rumble- Sarandon) led from box 1 and wasn’t headed as he held off Pete’s Eagle by 3/4 length in 30.55. The Eric Campana trained dog turns two years of age in October and had recently won a qualifying trial after leading.

BLACK FUSILEER (Kelsos Fusileer- High Recall) led from box 6 and then with his large group of cheering owners trackside was able to hold off Backpacker Jack by a half head in 30.24. The time was very good considering the amount of rain that had fallen on the track earlier in the day. The Chris Halse trained dog has now won twice from 5 starts.
