20180427 – Mandurah Friday

“Aeroplane Tommy resumes with outstanding performance over 405m”

Former topline chaser Aeroplane Tommy produced a mighty first up performance in tonight’s Free For All over 405m. The son of Turanza Bale hadn’t raced for ten months and when last in work was racing against the best in the state over 600m and 647m. Tonight he began fairly against a bunch of fellow greybeards (four years plus) and settled second behind the pace-making Jamaica The Fun. He reached the lead in the middle stages before charging to the line and clocking an amazing 22.64. He finished 6.25 lengths ahead of Jamaica The Fun and a head away third was race favourite Bill’s Desire. Aeroplane Tommy has now started 46 times for 16 wins and 15 minor placings. Unfortunately the box draw for the Mandurah Derby didn’t take place due to ongoing steward enquiries but the Mandurah Oaks draw was conducted by stewards Carlos Martins and Cameron Kerr :

  1. POPPY MONELLI
  2. STARLIGHT YOYO
  3. AZALEA MONELLI
  4. PETRIA MONELLI
  5. LEISEL MONELLI
  6. CROPDUSTER
  7. QUIDS IN
  8. RAW LUXURY
  9. MISS GREER
  10. WEST ON BAMBOO
