Within Site, who equalled the 411 metre track record last in her heat last week, lived up to that performance with an all of the way victory in the Ainsworth Game Technology Final this Friday.
Jumping brilliantly from box four, she raced straight to the lead and as they ran into the back, had set up a winning break. Although promising youngster Spin Me Round tried hard, she was no match for the winner who ran a very speedy 22.84.
Holidaying GRNSW Board Member Jack Primmer made the trophy presentation to trainer Darryl Schafer, who will now be looking for richer ‘spoils’ over a slightly longer distance.
Jason Fredericks’ Crown Town backed up from a maiden win at the last meeting, to lead all of the way in the Richmond Bakery stake. She had shown good speed from the traps on that occasion, and again was quickly into stride to take up the running. Beta Bear did take some ground off Crown Town in the run home, but Crown town held on well to score by a head in 23.55.
Go Yourself, a Lismore winner on Tuesday, continued the consistant form of the winners when she made it two in the week to take out the Richmond Valley Pet Foods stake. As was the case then, she came out running, and at the first turn had cleared the field. Kicking clear, she went on to win by three lengths in 27.89 for local trainer Annette Castles.
Adam Whitmore took the training honours on the day with a double. Refusal was his first winner when she railed through near home to get up by 1 1/4 lengths in 28.03 in the Mc Donald’s Pharmacy maiden, while Hippy Free Love also never left the fence in taking out the distance race. She outstayed her rivals to post a 3 1/4 length win in a handy 35.62.
Veteran performer Brother Tom notched up his ninth career win in the Ranvet stake winning by 3/4 length in 23.78 for Athol Bradley, and Gelegnite Kid exploded away with the Casino RSM Club Free For All, winning by 2 3/4 lengths in 27.21. Darren Russell is his trainer.
Ziplee made it two out of two at Casino when she ran 28.06 for Peter Simpson, whilst Mystic Rumble, a last start winner at Wenty, kept railing all of the way in the Madsen’s Gourmet Meats stake. The Steve Kavanagh trained galloper clocked 27.28 in getting home by a half length. Neville Robson’s Allegro Charm was the runner up, and a win for her is not far away.
Hospital bound Bob Thompson would have felt a little better when She Rose Hi won the Charcoal Inn stake in 27.80, and Glam Slam gave Faye Currey a welcome change of luck when she won the Casino Rural Traders maiden. She also was a leader, and held on to win in 23.54.
Casino will do it all again this Friday afternoon.
