Racetrack success for Golden Paw – Thu Feb 2013

The Golden Paw has celebrated a golden week with a couple of wins and two seconds as well.

Our WA export, Just Tripping, continued his interstae raid with a second consecutive win at Cannington last night. Beginning in an uncharacteristically good fashion, JT held his position from the check and had the field covered very early before careering away to win in 30.56 by seven lengths. He is backing up at Cannington on Saturday night in a middle distance 642 metre heat of the Summer Cup. It will be interesting to see how he handles the short turn around and extra distance.

Black Veil had her second run at Ballarat and performed courageously after a fairly rough race to hit the line strongly for an eye catching second in the Maiden Final over 390 metres. The strength of her finish indicates she will certainly appreciate a gradual rise in race distance over her next few starts.

Finally, Elusive Ed went round last week at Ballarat and performed creditably to reward his patient owners with a TIer 3 second placing.
