Following her outstanding victory in Tuesday’s Betfair Tasmanian Country Oaks (452 metres), smart bitch Fulande (Surf Lorian – Portent) will be transferred to Victoria.
The Peter Phillips prepared speedster accounted for one of the best fields of her sex seen at the Devonport Raceway in recent times, when she recorded 26.03 in defeating Roxy Rhythm and Sing The Song in the annual feature and appears to have a very bright future.
“Fulande will do her future racing in Victoria from the Bobby Douglas kennel,” June Phillips explained this week.
“We are hoping that she will succeed in the new environment and as a result enhance her value as a brood bitch.”
Fulande is the winner of 11 races and is a full-relation to the well performed chasers Frytson and Falsetto.
“Their dam Portent is a daughter of the very good matron World’s Finest, which produced the standouts Damek and Decembrist among others,” Mrs Phillips explained.
“Unfortunately World’s Finest died recently, which was a great loss as far as we were concerned.”
Both Damek (45 wins) and Decembrist (30 wins), sons of Big Daddy Cool, are standing stud duty at the Phillip’s Copping property.
Meanwhile the David Crosswell prepared Chicka Scott ( Surf Lorian – Moonlite Teddy), finished off in brilliant fashion to take out the Rapidvite Industries Tasmanian Country Derby (452 metres), also conducted at Tuesday’s NWGRC meeting.
As predicted, the Eileen Thomas prepared Cointreau Cap ( Premier Fantasy – Alotta Mojo) led them a merry dance from the outset, but Chicka Scott finished over the top to score in the time of 25.75.
Raced by Reg Kay, Chicka Scott has now been seen in the winners circle on five occasions and is proving to be a very handy chaser.
Veteran chaser Rewind (Collide – Ricky’s Angel) was up to his old tricks at the NWGRC meeting, winning his 56th race by taking out the Rapidvite Spray Invitation Stake (452 metres) in typical gutsy fashion.
The old fellow had to call on all of his reserves on intestinal fortitude to run down Seagull Boy in the lane, but eventually prevailed in the time of 25.59, exceptional given the weather conditions.
A huge on-course tip, Captain Thomas (Collision – Lightning Moss) led throughout to take out Tuesday’s Decembrist At Stud Stake (452 metres) in brilliant fashion.
Having only his fourth start in a race, he recorded a slick 25.98 in defeating Winklee Wind (Cool Effort – Pitstop Ash) and Jamella Miss (Premier Fantasy – Contador) and ran right up to a recent sizzling Hobart trial.
The chaser is an occupant of Allison Walker’s Bagdad kennel and appears to have a very bright future.
