NARROGIN/BUNBURY WEEKEND DOUBLE

The stable made a rare visit to Narrogin on Saturday, and was rewarded with success in the Healthway Healthy Handicap over 1190 metres. LE SACRE, under a very patient ride from apprentice Alex Hearn, had far too much fire power for his rivals, coming from 9th on the turn to sprint home for a 1 1/2 length win.

At Bunbury on Sunday we only had two runners, and managed a 3rd and a win. RIVERBEND COWBOY ran 3rd in the first race of the day over 1100 metres, and should soon win when stepped up to a greater distance.

HEY BLONDIE was hot favourite for the Toro Irrigation Handicap over 1400 metres. The race was run at a frenetic pace, with the ex-Northern Territory galloper Golden Shekels cutting out the early running, but Troy Turner was content to settle HEY BLONDIE mid-field. He improved her position on the home turn, and the Royal Academy  mare soon gathered in the  leaders and won comfortably, going away, by 2 lengths.

HEY BLONDIE should continue to give owner-breeder Owen Lindsay and his family more success in this current season.
