Cullen Keefe maybe one of the best he has trained says Ashburton trainer Laurence Hanrahan. The fluid pacer stepped like a seasoned pro and jumped straight to the front in his first start to the races and maintained a strong clip for driver Ricky May. At the line he had more than a length to spare from another impressive trialist in Franco Nate.  Cullen Keefestopped the clock in 3:01.6 for the mobile 2400m and he whistled over his last 800m in a slick 56.8 seconds and the final 400m in 27.2 which gave nothing else a chance of making ground in the run home.
