Morphettville Races - Pictorial Report

8 June 2013

The first race was the Hurdle where Dumosa and Trenchtown settled in front from Best of Minx then Honour the Force and Macedonian with Sparkling Victory further back ahead of Bring Them On.   Around the turn on the first lap Dumosa strode to the lead as Trenchtown momentarily eased back from Best of Minx then followed by Macedonian along the inside.  Passing the post on the first occasion Dumosa led from Trenchtown then Best of Minx Macedonian and Honour the Force.  Aling the back Dumosa led from Best of Minx then Trenchtown followed by Honour the Force and Macedonian then Sparkling Victory and Bring Them On as the field started to pack.  BY the 1200m Macedonian had moved around the field to join Dumosa with Trenchtown next followsed by Best of Minx and the others making a line of three at the back.  Over the 4th last jump Dumosa & Macedonian led as Sparkling Victory went up to third on the outside of Trenchtown and Best of Minx.  Over the second last Macedonian had taken control from Dumosa who tried to fight back then Honour the Force ahead of Sparkling Victory.  On landing over the last Macedonian raced away to record his second win from two starts over the jumps from Dumosa who again got a little close on takeoff to the last jump but regained momentum to hold second as Sparkling Victory ran on to take third ahead of Honour the Force.

Macedonian is from the Victorian stable of Peter Moody and takes his overall record to 41 starts for 7 wins and 8 placings while both Dumosa and Sparkling Victory (making his jumps debut) are from local stables as the South Australian jumping ranks starts to slowly build up (recently around 20 SA trainers gained their qualifications to train jumpers)

  In the second race after sitting fourth and fifth throughout Print Money was momentarily blocked on straighting but when the gap appeared he ran on strongly to defeat Sasenkile with The Yowie third.  Print Money is trained by J O'Connor at Morphettville and is by Publishing from the Pentire mare Penury and was sold through the Adelaide Magic Millions sale in 2012.

Due to illness I left after two races so this weeks report will only feature those races.
