Domerin is led home after his Pinjarra maiden win

The stable has been in great form over the weekend. After two close 2nds at Bunbury on Friday, WATERMANS BAY did everyone proud with a brave 2nd in the Group 3 Sir Ernest Lee Steere Classic at Ascot on Saturday. The Eternity Range gelding was only beaten a long head by the boom filly Night War, to whom he was conceding 3 kilos. More success awaits this honest gelding.

On Sunday we had four runners at Pinjarra, and every one finished in the frame! After PURSE SNATCHER was a fast-finishing 2rd in her race, SUGAR BUN, despite a disrupted run, finished 3rd in his maiden.

In the Europa Saddlery Mandurah Maiden over 1000 metres, DOMERIN was one of the outsiders of the field but, under a great ride by young apprentice Alex Hearn, the Oratorio gelding battled on strongly to win by a hard-fought long head from a pack of pursuers.

This win was some compensation to owner-breeders John and Sharon Molloy after their disappointment of going so close with WATERMANS BAY yesterday.

Bionicle, ridden home by Jason Whiting

Our final runner of the weekend was BIONICLE, who was coming back from a lengthy spell.

The Work Clobber Mandurah Handicap over 1200 metres was a competitive affair with many fancies. Jason Whiting positioned BIONICLE perfectly, mid-field on the rail, before making his challenge at the 200 metre mark. The Oratorio mare quickly sprinted clear of the field and won by an eased-down 3/4 length.

It was great to see BIONICLE return to form, and let’s hope there are more wins ahead for her patient owners.
