Oamaru Race Review 13th September 2015


Fratellino sat parked for the last 1000m and just did enough to get up and win in the line….Blazing Under Fire did well to run second. After an early gallop he caught the field and shot to the front with a lap to go but was run down in the shadows of the post. It’s How You Use It trotted all the way and battled on into third and Majestic De Fence ran home well after galloping early and losing 50m


Amazon Lily led and was too strong winning narrowly but well from Rock Diva who ran on home well from the 1 x 1 and they were well clear of the rest who just battled headed by Sifty Tuesday


Ralph Elliott led for the last 1400m and held easily to the line to beat Monkey Puzzle who finished on from the trail…Lis Rulz was late clear and ran home well from deep on the fence…Culley Backy made good ground from back in the field in the straight.

Flagpole raced in the 1 x 1 for most of the race and was too strong in the straight winning well despite pacing roughly near the line… Tuapeka Troy sat parked and fought well for second and Formula One led and faded to third…Articulight put in a big run to grab second after breaking early but was disqualified for galloping in excess of 150m

Race 5

October Rain won well after a slow beginning with a big run from the 400m to lead at the 200m and hold well to the line ….Insignificant made up a lot of ground from the 600m to run second and Little Mo and Jean Sebastien both made a little ground in the straight….Shadow Galleon was unlucky getting squeezed into a break at the 400m when looking to run into a place.

Race 6

Tangos Delight had a good run while the fireworks were happening up front then pooed out to sit parked with 800m to go….

Mighty Flying Mac was a big winner.. He had a go at getting to the front early then had a good run on the outer to the turn… Just when it looked like a place was his best he found another gear in the straight and ran past the favorite to win easily..Christen Me was game in defeat sitting three wide for the last lap on a quick speed and looking the winner 100m out…Mossdale Conner was also game after leading and then getting attacked several times in the running, he fought on well for third…Bettor Dream ran on well in the straight and Franco Harrington looked unlucky running on with little room at the line…


Pulp Fiction settled near last of the big field and was still well back starting the last 600m… He boomed home wide to get up on the line and beat Canardly Lover who ran on from a handy spot on the outer…Titan Banner was good sitting parked and fighting hard to the line to be a close up third…Ideal Arden did well for fourth after leading and getting attacked by Titan Banner during the running…Devil May Care, Jerry Garcia and Canndew all made ground in the run home.
