LE SACRE brings up a hat-trick!

Another busy day for the stable at Bunbury on Thursday. The team performed well, and finished up the day with a winner, two very close 2nds – SATELLITE CITY and RAGTRADER – and two promising 4ths, FULL REIGN and PURSE SNATCHER.

Our winner was the much-improved LE SACRE, who completed a hat-trick of successive wins when he took out the Rossiter Painting Contractors Handicap over 1100 metres. The Oratorio gelding was not really fancied in the betting, despite winning his last two races.

As the race itself unfolded, Troy Turner anchored LE SACRE at the rear of the field, as the hot favourite Sky Balloon set off at a cracking pace, endeavouring to make all. The tactics nearly worked, as most of the runners were soon off the bit, but Troy timed his run on LE SACRE to perfection and they swept past the leader in the last 50 metres to win, going away, by a length.

LE SACRE has been a revelation this prep, and after this win carrying 59 kilos he will probably step up to mid-week City class in the near future.
