“Up And Above wins on debut for Chris Halse”

Nambeelup based leading trainer Chris Halse unveiled a smart youngster tonight when he took out the Get The TABtouch Maiden over 405m. Up And Above is a daughter of High Earner who turns two years old this May. She was heavily backed in to $2.00 with fixed odds and after an absolute explosion from the boxes victory was never in doubt. Second favourite Sittella jumped well and despite tracking wide for trainer Linda Smithson was second throughout and beaten four lengths. Another five lengths away in third position was the Southern River based Apache Gundi for Christine Bennett. Up And Above’s mother Gone To Heaven won 17 of 40 career starts for Halse and earned over $77,000 in stake money. Up And Above’s explosive box manners and winning time of 22.83 indicates she is on target to emulate her mother’s racing achievements.
