Shan­tui’s Amaz­ing Chase

The Press - - Racing -

An­tic­i­pa­tion around the in­au­gu­ral Amaz­ing Chase on Sun­day was height­ened by a shock re­sult in the first head-to head race at Manukau yes­ter­day.

The Karen Walsh-trained Thrilling Flo led and was too quick for Chase favourite Tom Tee. Thrilling Flo zoomed around the Manukau track in 30.24 set­ting a tough mark for the re­main­ing six con­tes­tants to beat. She earned $3,000 for her heat win and the $10,000 prize for the fastest time dan­gled tan­ta­lis­ingly for Walsh and owner Gary Hard­ing.

Big­time Paddy earned $3,000 in heat two but didn’t threaten the time of Thrilling Flo. But in heat three won by Walsh-trained Ridin’ Shot­gun the clock was stopped in 30.23 to put the Aussie im­port in the lead.

Then heat four win­ner Shan­tui stole the win off the Walsh ken­nel clock­ing 30.22 and the prize was head­ing south to Can­ter­bury to the ken­nel of Dave and Jean Fa­hey.
