Good evening all

As you will all know by now the Thunder ran into a credible 2nd this afternoon, after coping a couple of checks on the turn.

As Luke Nolen said upon returning we just got beat by a slightly fitter horse given that the winner was second up. Luke commented that it would be nice to get a photo on the wall with the horse and as he stated there are some nice good money races at the Thunders disposal in the coming months. Reviewing the footage when I got home the commentators all agreed that our race was the hottest on the day. Luke also commented that the race will be a form line moving forward.

For a horse that we consider to be better up in distance the Thunder acquitted himself well yet again, which is a testament to Shane’s training ability.

Thanks to Jaye our strapper who put the finishing touches presenting the horse in the mounting yard looking an absolute treat, well done Jaye.

The horse pulled up well post-race and I will speak to Shane tomorrow to see how he comes up tomorrow.

Thanks to all the owners that made the effort given that it was father’s day, it was great to see a big turnout of the Bradfield family however in saying this they did have home ground advantage.

Until you here from me next week

“Good Luck and Good Punting”

Cheers
