North-East Wrap: Silence makes Noise in Shepparton Vic Breeders

Welcome along to this week’s edition of the North-East Wrap. It was a big week of racing that was highlighted by a wonderful night of racing at Shepparton on Monday Night featuring the GRV Vic Bred Maiden Final.
.
The week kicked off last Friday with a good card of racing at Lords Raceway in Bendigo. The main race was the GRV Vic Bred Final and it was taken out by the Narelle Tapp trained Noaki Buckley. He is literally low flying at the moment winning five of his last six starts and has now earned just under $20,000 in prizemoney.
.
It was a fabulous finish too with only three lengths separating the first five runners. Second was Zoe, who led them up and third in was Young Henry (Replay).
.

On a really competitive day of racing there was a number of highly impressive winners but for mine the pick was Hawka Tron. He has developed an enviable record winning 12 of 28 but he might just be starting to put it all together as he bolted in Friday winning in the fastest time of the day which as 23.93. He is very good and it will pay to keep following him as he will keep winning. Other strong winners included Crackerjack Bill in Race 3, who has now won three of eight, Seabrook Sam in Race 5, who won in good time, and Dyna Keitaro, who bolted in Race 7 by seven lengths in fast time.

Sunday racing went up the straight at Healesville and the pick of the action was the win of Soldier Spy in Race 8. This guy is truly in the zone and he brought up his sixth win in a row by coming from off the pace and winning in 19.31, which was also the fastest of the day (Replay). Trainer Michael Fox certainly has him in career best form and there is no reason why he can’t keep winning.
.
Another win that was top notch was that of Unquestionably, who came from last early, changing course and sweeping home down the centre to win well in pretty good time. Trained by Mark Filomeno, he has now won nine of 28 and has a tremendous record up the straight.

Monday Night saw a wonderful night of racing at Shepparton in the Goulburn Valley with the feature race the $7,500 to the winner GRV Vic Breeders Maiden Final. It was a race with a fair amount of interference on the first corner. Absolute Silence, which bounced out fast and led to the first corner, missed the scrimmage and subsequently was left a big leader ahead of Lee Brilliance, who chased hard but couldn’t bridge back the margin in the straight.
.
Crave was able to make late ground into third and has the unenviable record of nine placings from 13 starts without a win, so surely a victory is just around the corner. The two unlucky runners were the winner’s kennelmate, Unlawful Entry, and the favourite, Moreira, who got put out of play on the first turn (Replay).
.
It was a strange night with a few short priced favourites going under and plenty of value winning. The win of Mo Town San in the staying race was terrific, beating a crack field including Esparza and Seeking Justice. He has now won four of his five starts at Shepp over the 650. Triple Lindy bounced back to her best upsetting Group 1 champ Lamia Bale in Race 7 and Spring Missile, for Brooke Ennis, was dynamic in winning over the 450 in fast time, holding off his kennelmate Gaucho.

All in all it was a really good week of racing in the North East and I hope you found a winner or two. Until next time take care, good luck and good punting.
