20210115 – Mandurah Friday – Dawesville Cup Heats

“Sole Trader causes upset result for Adam Smithson”

Former Victorian Sole Trader produced a surprise jump in tonight’s first heat of the Dawesville Cup when he speared out of box three and out-sped a zippy lineup to find the front. The son of American sire SH Avatar was winless after four Cannington starts since arriving from Victoria. However once the strong finisher found the lead he was always going to be extremely hard to overtake. Race favourites Sunset Kodiak, Wise El Nino and Aston Thunder all met with mid race interference and Sole Trader powered away to win by four lengths in 27.63. Outsider Production worked home stylishly from box eight to be the runner up for Kody Charles in advance of Aston Thunder who finished third. Sole Trader is raced by Shane Loftus and trained by Adam Smithson and has now won 8 of 36 career starts.

HOUNDS TO FOLLOW :

Race 1 Number 4 BUMPER BLASTER : Started $91.00 fixed odds and ran a great second in a handy time.

Race 8 Number 3 SHERIFF MAX : Stormed home along the rail and is close to a win.

20210102 – Cannington Saturday – Summer Chase Heats

“Kiss Me Linda retires on a high note”

Grand campaigner Kiss Me Linda (pictured) won her final race tonight for leading trainer Chris Halse. The daughter of Kinloch Brae hadn’t won for twelve starts but had drawn favourably in box one. Race favourite More Deductions ($1.65 fixed odds) blasted out of box three but Kiss Me Linda used her inside advantage to punch up and be level at the first turn. The duo recorded an electric first section of 5.42 before matching motors for most of the race. Just prior to straightening Kiss Me Linda held a narrow lead before saluting by half a length in a slick 30.00. More Deductions was the runner up two lengths ahead of the fast finishing West On Olvee. Kiss Me Linda is raced by the Ryan Hill managed From The Jockey’s Mouth Syndicate and ends her career with 19 wins, 34 minor placings and over $150,000 in earnings. She also competed in two Perth Cups and promises plenty in regards to producing quality pups in the breeding barn.

HOUNDS TO FOLLOW :

Race 4 Number 8 LE JURY MONELLI : Overcame box eight to beat a speedy lineup in 30.12.

Race 5 Number 2 WEST ON BLOOM : Motored home for a fast finishing second behind kennelmate Sir Monty.
