Bren­nan, De Campo dom­i­nate

Albany Advertiser - - RACING - Cameron New­bold

The lead­ing sta­bles of Michael Bren­nan and An­drew De Campo dom­i­nated Sat­ur­day night’s 10race card at Harold Reid Pace­way, with the vis­it­ing pair of train­ers tak­ing out six races be­tween them­selves.

Bren­nan and top reins­man Michael Gran­tham com­bined to score a win­ning tre­ble in Al­bany, while Capel fa­ther-son train­er­driver An­drew and Ai­den De Campo achieved the same feat.

The De Cam­pos be­gan their win­ning night with $2 favourite Rag­ing Romeo jump­ing well from the sec­ond row to lead and hold off all chal­lengers in the Al­bany Scaf­fold Hire Pace (2258m), by 3.7m over Jil­liby Jake.

Walsh then made it two wins from two starts in Al­bany this sea­son, show­ing ter­rific speed to lead from the out­set and win by a con­vinc­ing 11.2m in race 4.

The De Campo tre­ble was round- ed out by three-year-old Tell­me­toat­tack, who con­trolled the Jock Whitelaw Me­mo­rial 3YO Pace (2258m) from start to fin­ish and won by 8.3m to make it two wins in eight ca­reer runs.

Hot favourite Mach­lani, with Gran­tham in the sulky, proved too strong for his ri­vals in race 3 as they pow­ered to a dom­i­nant win be­fore $1.85 favourite Woodlea Rag­nar edged out sta­ble­mate Muffins in the Al­bany Stock­feeds Pace (2683m).

The Kings As­sas­sin, un­placed at his past four runs, bounced back to the win­ners’ cir­cle after charg­ing home on the fi­nal lap in the SOS Of­fice Pace (2258m) to salute at $7, de­feat­ing Just Bar­ney by 3.7m.

In a night when there were plenty of star train­ers and driv­ers, Ross Olivieri and driver Chris Voak teamed up to win race 5 with pro­gres­sive pacer At­mo­spher­i­cal.

At­mo­spher­i­cal led on the bell lap and was able to hold off Disco Un­der Fire in the home straight, mak­ing it three straight vic­to­ries this cam­paign.

Rag­ing Romeo cruises to vic­tory for Ai­den De Campo in the Al­bany Scaf­fold Hire Pace (2258m) on Sat­ur­day night.

Reins­man Ai­den De Campo fin­ished with a driv­ing tre­ble at Harold Reid Pace­way on Sat­ur­day.
