“Destroyer wins staying Free For All for Chris Halse”

Ex-Victorian based stayer Destroyer put in a solid performance this evening when he took out the 715m Free For All. Odds-on favourite Scott Keeping began only fairly from box two and was headed off at the first turn by Destroyer from box six. The son of Spring Gun soared clear with a lap to go and established a five length lead over kennel-mate Ramifications who was the closest pursuer. Outsider Chezzy Allen raced in third position ahead of Scott Keeping who began to build some momentum. Turning for home it was clear that Destroyer was going to lead all the way and while Scott Keeping rallied late he was beaten four lengths. Ramifications was another two lengths away third in advance of Chezzy Allen (fourth) and Moment To Jive (fifth). Destroyer was having his second start in WA after finding early trouble and running sixth over 520m. The Neil Young owned chaser has now started 46 times for 9 wins, 23 minor placings and over $64,000 in earnings.

HOUNDS TO FOLLOW :

Race 1 Number 1 FUNKY FACTS : Rocketed late to snatch third and won’t take long to win one.

Race 2 Number 5 LORENZO BLUE : Steamed home strongly again at long odds after flying home at his previous start.
