“Ragetime Thrill rails to victory for Ricky Walton”

Coming in to tonight the Ricky Walton prepared, Dardanup based chaser Ragetime Thrill had started 58 times for just 1 win and 21 minor placings. Despite being a runner up at her last two starts the daughter of Cosmic Chief was sent out at the juicy odds of $11.80 with the WA TAB. She settled midfield at the first turn but from box 2 was able to find the fence and make ground in the middle stages. She straightened third but had plenty of momentum and was able to zoom clear of rivals Jessie Quick (second) and Whitehawk Parker (third). Ragetime Thrill scored by two lengths in a solid 23.25 for her appropriately named Never Give Up Syndicate. Dardanup trainer Ricky Walton also deserves a lot of credit to have Ragetime Thrill in the best form of her career at the ripe age of 3 years and 7 months.

HOUNDS TO FOLLOW :

Race 3 Number 6 VELOCITY STAR : Chased tenaciously to win in a fast 17.08.

Race 4 Number 7 CHARCOAL AVENUE : Gave away a big headstart but rattled home for third.
