20180705 – Northam Thursday


“Faulkner causes major upset at Northam”

Veteran chaser Faulkner produced a stunning upset in today’s Afternoon In The Valley Mixed 5/6 over 297m. The son of Magic Sprite turns five this month and despite his ripe old age put in a blinder of a performance. From box five he launched himself to the front and while favourite Joe Man worked into second at the first turn he was unable to catch Faulkner who scored by two lengths in 17.61. Joe Man was the runner up a length in advance of Party Goer who battled on well for third position. The victory took Faulkner’s win tally to an impressive fourteen and his career earnings over $23,000.

HOUNDS TO FOLLOW :

Race 1 Number 8 JUNK YARD HUTCHY : Relished box eight and scored by a comfortable six lengths.

Race 6 Number 1 DUNGEON MASTER : Appreciated box one when he held up from the inside before charging away to win by six lengths.
