The stable’s winning run continued with another double at Bunbury on Thursday.

After SATELLITE CITY had run 3rd in the first race of the day, PURSE SNATCHER was well fancied for the Geographe Civil Maiden over 1200 metres.

The lightly weighted Haneem Belle set the early pace, with PURSE SNATCHER settled at the rear of the field by Jason Whiting. The Natural Blitz filly was still in 9th place at the turn, but then Jason angled her outĀ to makeĀ a big run down the outside of the field, and she responded well, surging past the other runners to win a shade cosily by 1 1/4 lengths.

This was a good performance by horse and rider, and a great thrill for the owners, in particular the lead owner Andrew Porteous. Despite having been involved in the racing industry all his life, PURSE SNATCHER is his very first runner! The filly should mature into a nice horse next prep.
