Into The Black Book – Gloucester Park


The OzRace Team comment on the ones to follow from the Fridays meeting at GLOUCESTER PARK

Friday 15th December 2017


“Gary Hall Snr has a 3YO that continues to improve and his narrow second behind Mistahmistah was excellent. The winner led throughout while Speed Man was forced to work and despite putting his head in front, he peaked late in 1:57.6.” – Trent Orwin


“produced a strong first-up performance to dead-heat for second after covering extra ground. The Gary Hall-trained five-year-old, who has won six races and run 15 minor places from 30 starts, is expected to build a better strike rate of victories in his current campaign. He is certainly capable of quickly ending a seven-run losing sequence. The gelding has not raced for almost four months when contesting his race on Friday night and is sure to benefit considerably from the event.” – Ernie Manning

“did it tough when dead heating for second with Glenferrie Rustler in the race won by Ruling Gold, hasn’t won in  seven  starts but was sent out as a $2.70 favourite, watch especially if he draws an alley.” – Robbie Dewar


“Another Gary Hall Snr runner up makes the black book. This time it is Runrunjimmydunn who raced outside of Vampiro and fell a half-head short on the line after a last half was run in 55.3 seconds. He will be winning soon.” – Trent Orwin


“lost 30m when galloping at the start of the mares race won by Dior Mia  More made up a  heap of ground to finish fourth, follow.” – Robbie Dewar


“faced a difficult task from gate 11 in the second Xmas Gift qualifying heat and there was a lot of merit in his third placing. The five-year-old, trained by Ray Williams, exhibited solid potential when winning the first four races of his present preparation. He has been defeated at his past five starts, but now looks primed for a return to the winners’ list. He could be hard to beat if drawing favourably in the gift final.” – Ernie Manning


“The find of the Inter Dominion series continued his stellar form by winning the open class event from the breeze. The mile rate was a quick 1:56.1 and Vultan Tin can be followed at big odds in the upcoming Fremantle and WA Pacing Cups.” – Trent Orwin


“punched daylight and got beat in the stand won by Always Arjay by just over a length in a clever stable don’t  jump off.” – Robbie Dewar




“revealed a glimpse of his true ability by storming home from eighth at the bell to run a close second. The five-year-old, a member of trainer Ross Olivier’s powerful stable, raced below his best when unplaced in Inter Dominion Championship heats. He has won five races and run five places from 12 Gloucester Park starts. Can be prominent next month in the Fremantle Pacing Cup and WA Pacing Cup.” – Ernie Manning
