HEATS AND FINALS
Last week we had 2 heats for the Grade 6′s over the 390 mtrs and didn’t we see something special.
Heat 1 was taken out by Superstar Jatt for Brayden Klemke in 22.11. He made light work of box 3 bouncing straight to the lead recording a 8.33 first split. Corless was 6.5L away in 2nd, Anitas Girl for 3rd and Miss Grace for 4th.
Heat 2 is were the sparks flew, Aussie Infrared, absolutely shangeyed from box 6, noticeably using plenty of the track but never the less scorched early to record an 8.18 first split (the record is 8.16 to the almighty Magic Diva) then power away to run a sizzling 21.74 (record is 21.63 held by Arizona Dozer) Fiery Felix was 7L away back in second running 22.22, Dyna Xanadu in 3rd and Pay the Boo in 4th.
Summery - Aussie Infared is poorly drawn in box 3 as he uses plenty of the track, Fiery Felix just keeps getting better with racing and is well drawn and if he can get the fence he’ll be hard to hold out.
We are also conducting 7 exciting GRV Vic Bred Maiden heats and watching the trials over the last few weeks there seems to be some nice ones kicking their careers off tonight.
Heat 1 – Maestro Destini, a classic Rinaldi bred chaser that will no doubt be strong late
