“Harper’s Hero wins A1 Salvage and Hardware Winter Sprint”
Nambeelup trainer Tony Scott took out tonight’s Winter Sprint final with track specialist Harper’s Hero. The son of Kinloch Brae relished box eight and after a moderate jump maintained a wide path and rounded up the field to win by two lengths. Race favourite Yarrinup Flyer was held up at a vital stage near the rail and finished fourth. The Chris Halse trained Fernando Star was prominent throughout before running second and Ballistic Bullet was close up in third for Terry Erenshaw. Harper’s Hero is owned by Leon Birch and has now started 36 times for 13 wins and 13 minor placings.
