Time Flies produces career best performance

Byford trainer Michael Rees won today’s Skyracing Novice over 509m with the pint-sized Time Flies. The daughter of Cosmic Rumble had only won 1 of her 17 career starts leading in and despite drawing box one was sent out at odds of $7.00. She flew from the boxes and held out early challenges to lead by a comfortbale six lengths. Leaving the back straight favourite Patchwork Patti thundered into second position but the 25kg fawn bitch had enough in hand and scored by three lengths in a smart 30.13. Patchwork Patti ran second four lengths ahead of the fast finishing Glassy.

HOUNDS TO FOLLOW :

Race 4 Number 3 ROGER’S DREAMIN : Struck traffic problems but persisted strongly and ran a solid second over 297m.

Race 7 Number 8 SHADOW RUNNER : Missed the start again from box eight but had time to recover and whizz around the outside.
