‘Team Bond’ hot to trot in early races at Pace­way

Narrogin Observer - - Sport - Richard Bell

A crack­ing, cool Spring night en­thralled pa­trons at the Nar­ro­gin Pace­way on Satur­day for a bumper eight event card.

In the early events team Bond dom­i­nated with a quinella in race 1 when ta­lented three-year-old The Buck­eye Bul­let beat Tin­sel­ton.

Promis­ing four-year-old mare Our Al­fie Romeo dec­i­mated her male ri­vals in race 4.

The Bonds’ run came to an end in race 5 when Bright Di­a­mond re­lin­quished a clear lead, con­quered by a jet pro­pelled One for Sassy who came from last for Madeleine Young.

The main race saw an­other favourite bite the dust, with The Bucket List be­ing un­able to sus­tain his last lap burst and low­ered his colours to the richly ta­lented, fast fin­isher Royal Mach.

The nine-year-old has been brought along pa­tiently by trainer David Hunter with sta­ble driver Stu­art McDon­ald pro­duc­ing a per­fectly timed run from last at the fi­nal bend.

Pac­ing con­tin­ues at Nar­ro­gin with an­other Satur­day night ex­trav­a­ganza on Oc­to­ber 27.
