“Hickory Monelli storms to victory in 22.58”
Promising youngster Hickory Monelli overcame box six to power home and win tonight over 405m against a high quality lineup. Turbo Fun from box one was well supported having won 19 races over the distance and Rippin’ Memphis who was returning from Victoria started a warm favourite. Rippin’ Memphis set the pace but was reeled in effortlessly by Hickory Monelli who saluted in a slick 22.58. Trained by David Hobby, Hickory Monelli has now started 23 times for 7 wins and 6 seconds. The Terry Erenshaw prepared Aston Casino ran a handy second while Rippin’ Memphis looked tired on the line but still held third.
