“Enzo Crudeli wins the Miata Final with Chloe Ant”

‘The Miata’ is a series conducted over 715m and was formerly known as the Distance Gift. The great stayer Miata won it twice in 2012-13 and in recent years notable winners have been Neil Monelli, Grace Ali , Zack Monelli and Speed Freak. West On Nugget was sent out a $2.30 favourite from box six tonight but was clearly the slowest to begin. Argyle Queen set the pace from box one and Chloe Ant settled in second position to give chase. With 100m to go it was clear West On Nugget couldn’t reach the pair and would have to settle for third position. Argyle Queen strayed from the fence and Chloe Ant drove through to join her rival on the line. Chloe Ant was granted victory by the judge by the smallest possible margin. She has now started 59 times for 10 wins and 25 minor placings and took her career earnings to over $142,000.

HOUNDS TO FOLLOW :

Race 1 Number 7 CHEERS MICK : Will win one very soon, performed well from a wide draw tonight.

Race 2 Number 5 SCRAMBLE BUTTON : Improved sharply at box rise to clock a fast 5.40 to the first turn before being beaten narrowly.
