Runs of the Month | September 2023

Form expert Dale Code has picked out a selection of runs from around Victoria that have caught the eye in the past month.

Breeding: February ’22 Shima Shine x Mepunga Molly
Trainer: Jeff Britton (Anakie)
Record: 5 starts 4-0-0

Dale says: Ridiculous effort by this rising star to overcome a slow start and almost falling over when turned sideways up the home straight in this top shelf win.

#2 RETRO AGOGO (Box 6)
Breeding: October ’21 Barcia Bale x Zipping Jamie
Trainer: Kathryne Tabb (Lara)
Record: 4 starts 1-0-0

Dale says: Not many dogs go around complete rank outsider ($31.10) and turn for home in last place and get up but that’s exactly what Retro Agogo did to record her first win in unlikely fashion.

#3 MR. LARSON (Box 4)
September ’20 Sennachie x Sly Shiraz
Trainer: Thomas Condon (Hampton Park)
Record: 29 starts 5-2-5

Dale says: What are the odds? The name of the race was called ‘Sennachie at Stud’ and the winner was out of Sennachie, and the winner wasn’t in the frame after completely stumbling out of the boxes yet turned on a railing exhibition to make up some remarkable ground to claim this stunning win.

June ’21 Sennachie x Fabwik
Trainer: Steve Bruce White (Buln Buln East)
Record: 18 starts 10-4-1

Dale says: The magnitude of this win cannot be underestimated given the fact that Professor Snitch gave rising star Zulu Blast and Group 1 winner Baby Jaycee a start and a beating in this red-hot run of 29.31 seconds.

#5 FLYING ZULU (Box 2)
September ’21 Orson Allen x Cyclone Jebel
Trainer: Jason Thompson (Pearcedale)
Record: 3 starts 3-0-0

Dale says: For pure time standard, it is hard to ignore the effort of potential star Flying Zulu when he turned on an exhibition of sustained speed in posting a flying victory in 24.82 seconds, which is just over three lengths outside of the Shepparton 450-metre track record of 24.59 seconds held by Rejuvenate.

November ’21 Shima Shine x Swift Current
Trainer: Rodney Clark (Echuca Village)
Record: 12 starts 3-3-1

Dale says: The effort by Mighty Quinn to go down by the narrowest of margins after bombing the start and getting pushed wide through the first bend was simply brilliant.

Consequently, he came out next start and won, which is quite often the case after viewing big runs, so it is always important to keep your black book open.
