Tas Man Bromac out

Southland pacer Tas Man Bromac is under offer and likely to be sold to an Australian buyer in the next few days. Invercargill trainer Nathan Williamson confirmed that he withdrew the 10-win stable star from the Hannon Memorial at Oamaru on Sunday due to the impending sale.

Bull bounces back

Chicago Bull bounced back from a flat fresh-up fourth to score brilliantly at Gloucester Park in Perth on Friday night.

The Gary Hall Jr driven five-year-old son of Bettors Delight settled back early but powered around the field and took over with 600m to run, giving nothing else a chance in scooting away to win by 12.5 metres.

He clocked 2:30.2 for the mobile 2130m, a mile rate of 1:53.5, with the last 800m in 55.7sec.

The second favourite for the Perth Inter-Dominions in late November behind Kiwi champion Lazarus, “The Bull’’ looks back to his best.

Hall Jnr earlier piloted former Kiwi pacer Lets Chase The Dream to an easy win to boost his Inter-Dominion claims.

Mr Mojito strong

Mr Mojito made it four straight wins by scoring narrowly after a tough trip at Melton on Friday night for Victorian trainer-driver Kerryn Manning, as he eyes an Inter-Dominion series start.

The former Kiwi-trained Real Desire gelding was caught wide early then sat parked, taking the lead halfway down the straight and staving off Maximan by a head in 1:59.7 (1720m, mobile), a mile rate of 1:52.

Manning secured three wins for the night after flying Kiwi-bred mare Ameretto made it six straight and Kiwi-bred trotter Matatoki also won.
