Smart bitch Bell Oh Moss (Kiowa Sweet Trey – Marananga Moss) upset her more fancied rivals in winning the rich Launceston Veterinary Hospital Breeders Classic Final (515 metres) conducted at Monday night’s LGRC meeting at the Tote Racing Centre.
Despite having been impressive in firstly winning a heat and then a semi – final of the prestigious event in the time of 29.87, she was unwanted in wagering on the event, paying a win dividend of $19.
Prepared by veteran mentor Rodney Walker, Bell Oh Moss began nicely from the pink box and was able to track the leader Willy Wag Tail (Cosmic Rumble – Ricky’s Angel) throughout, before railing underneath him in the concluding stages to score an impressive victory.
The bitch had a length and a half to spare at the wire, the journey having been covered in the time of 30.09.
Roxy Rhythm (High Earner – Stylish Moon) filled third placing, with race favourite She’s All Class (Dyna Lachlan – It’s A She), a close up fourth after meeting early interference.
As always, the Breeders Classic Final proved to be a great spectacle, the $3.80 offered about She’s All Class an indication of the depth of the field.
Meanwhile a feature of Monday night’s LGRC meeting was the performance of the highly successful High Earner – Stylish Moon litter, members of which were seen in the winners circle on no less than three occasions.
Sing The Song, Pipstar and Kiss Me Elvis all greeted the judge to give Launceston’s Grubb family a night to remember.
Kiss Me Elvis was particularly impressive, taking out the The Vet Nurses Grade 5 (515 metres) in a best of the night time of 29.70.
The litter has taken all before it in recent months, carrying on the good work started by Stylish Moon’s dam Stylish Dotty, which produced the winners of 151 races in a litter by the top sire Where’s Pedro.
Smart bitch Tiza Gold (Where’s Pedro – Tiza Moment) continued on her winning way at the meeting when she took out the Dr Kim Barrett Invitation (515 metres) for Brighton trainer Laurie Hills.
The bitch led them a merry dance from the check box, defeating Tadmore Dunoon (Collision – Baretta Betty) in the time of 29.87 and paying a win dividend of $4.40.
Tiza Gold has now won four of her last six outings and nine of 44 lifetime, displaying a particular liking for the Tote Racing Centre circuit.
Smart bitch Lily Rocket (Brett Lee – Lily Eve) kept her unbeaten record intact at the meeting in winning the Dr Fiona Duggan Juvenile (515 metres) in the time of 30.19.
Only 23 months old, she has now won three from three from the kennel of astute Brighton trainer Rodney Ransley and appears headed for bigger and better things.
