Weight Variations
SUNSET LASSO (Hard Style Rico-Sunset Kodiak) was able to get to the front underneath of Sassy Snickers going off the back straight before holding off Girls Like You to win the opening heat of the Gr 2 WA Oaks. The David Hobby trained bitch recorded just her second career victory from 21 starts with a 30.08 win.

SUNSET SERENGETI (Hard Style Rico- Sunset Kodiak) rattled home along the fence to claim Miss Envy on the line winning by a neck in 30 seconds in the second heat of the WA Oaks. The David Hobby trained bitch has now won 10 times from 28 starts and over $81,000 in stakes.

RACING BARBIE (Zack Monelli- Rekall Kelsos) led throughout in the third heat of the Gr2 WA Oaks holding off the late finishing burst of Shy Emoji to win by a nose in 30.02. The Christine Robartson trained bitch doesn’t turn two years of age until September and has now won 3 of 7 career starts.

SNEAKY EMOJI (Sunset Spitfire-Corona Monelli) ran past his kennel mate Sunset Frazier in the straight to win the Gr 2 Britton’s Formal Wear WA Derby final. The David Hobby trained dog had finished second in his heat the week before behind Fire Lighter. Once he sat so close to the favourite Sunset Frazier the race was his to lose and he won by 1 1/2 lengths in 29.72.
