Past the Post - City Building Supplies Race Day - 16th April 2016
The annual City Building Supplies Race Day took place on Saturday where racegoers were treated to competitive racing.
The feature race of the day was the City Building Supplies Sprint where Tracey Frizzell continued her great form with Oosterman.
The Esperance trained galloper lead from start to finish in the feature when handled by up and coming apprentice Tayla Stone.
Frizzell and Stone enjoyed numerous wins during the Esperance season in which the success has carried through to the Kalgoorlie season.
Frizzell plans to start her star galloper on Saturday the 30th April.
Frizzell had a double on the day with chestnut Bear Trader saluting in the CSR Gyprock Handicap over 1300m.
Natasha Faithfull was aboard for the win settling the Esperance galloper on pace before proving too strong in the final stages.
Bear Trader has now won four races with Saturday's victory the first at the KBRC.
The highlight for many punters on the day was the win of Daradale in the James Hardie Handicap.
The Brett Mathews trained galloper was tailed off last in a position that most thought he could not win from.
Lisa Staples urged her mount from the 400m mark who picked up the bit and flew home 33:35 to defeat Butterfly Kiss by a head.
Dan Morton improved his already impressive strike rate at the KBRC with Kamballie in the Wespine Handicap.
The Blackfriars mare was given a perfect run by Sarah Bonner when settling just off pace.
Neville Newton notched his first win of the season with Bianconi five year old Killorglin.
The former Eastern States galloper let down with a big run under the riding of Mollie Clark to defeat Longschamp who had a big lead at the furlong.
The win on Saturday was the gelding's fourth run in Western Australia.
Here Comes Poppy took out the Cockburn Cement Maiden when given a great ride by Tayla Stone.
Punters were right on the money with the Merv Dellar trained galloper sent out favourite at his fourteenth start.
The Corinthian Doors Maiden was taken out by the Peter Fernie trained Brasco's Boy.
Brasco's Boy and favourite Crosswalk were stride for stride when entering the straight with the Fernie trained galloper proving too strong in the run to the line.
Racing continues ANZAC Day at the KBRC.
