20171215 – Mandurah Friday

“Issue flashes around Mandurah for the Chilli Man”

Former Queensland sprinter Issue could not have been more impressive in winning tonight’s Book For Christmas Grade 3 over 405m. The son of Barcia Bale exploded out of box four and immediately found a soft, uncontested lead. The 35kg black dog increased his advantage with every stride, officially scoring by 6.25 lengths in a sizzling run of 22.50. The Lexia Isaac prepared Lord Reddan ran on strongly to claim second narrowly ahead of the John Iwanyk trained Panchorama. Issue is owned by the Dennis Kerr managed ‘On The Far’ Syndicate and is trained by Michael ‘Chilli Man’ Johnston (pictured). He has now started 40 times for an impressive 13 wins and 15 minor placings.


Race 5 Number 4 MARYDOLL : Sprinted brilliantly fresh, winning in a fast 22.58.

Race 7 Number 5 WHO’S GOT IT : After winning on Tuesday repeated the dose with a 22.76 win over favourite Miss Ammerica.
