Ka­paulenko’s hot run con­tin­ues

The Weekly Advertiser Horsham - - Sport -

Horsham trainer Paul Preusker is en­joy­ing a real pur­ple patch of form and this con­tin­ued at Nara­coorte.

The Preusker sta­ble had Ka­paulenko, who was shoot­ing for three wins in a row, lin­ing up in a bench­mark 64 1430-me­tre hand­i­cap.

Reg­u­lar rider Holly Mck­ech­nie was back aboard the geld­ing af­ter win­ning at Terang 10 days ear­lier.

Ka­paulenko showed good speed leav­ing the bar­ri­ers, set­tling on the pace and Mck­ech­nie gave the five-year-old a beau­ti­ful ride from the box seat.

Ka­paulenko loomed large be­fore the home turn, cruis­ing into con­tention.

When bal­anced in the straight, the son of Ka­phero dashed to the front. In a gal­lant per­for­mance Ka­paulenko scored by al­most one-and-a-half lengths.

Patch takes cup

Stawell train­ers Terry and Ka­rina O’sul­li­van re­turned to the win­ners’ cir­cle at Co­lac, also at the week­end.

The O’sul­li­van’s had their tal­ented gal­loper Patch Adams lin­ing up in the $50,000 Co­lac Cup over 2000 me­tres.

Rid­den by Jack Hill, Patch Adams en­joyed a nice run from the box seat, set­tling just be­hind the lead­ers.

The Dane Shadow en­tire hooked to the out­side at the top of the straight, begin­ning to let down with a strong run.

Patch Adams showed an ex­plo­sive turn of foot over the con­clud­ing stages, dash­ing to the front to score a dom­i­nant win by a length.

The Co­lac Cup was Patch Adams’ third ca­reer vic­tory from 27 starts, for stake earn­ings of $198,450.

Sa­ri­manok salutes

Terry and Ka­rina O’sul­li­van con­tin­ued their good form at Wer­ribee on Mon­day, when Sa­ri­manok won the cash.

The Lookin at Lucky four-yearold proved too good in a bench­mark 58 high weight hand­i­cap over 1615 me­tres, scor­ing by two lengths with Tom Ryan aboard.
