No trouble for Tony

Thursday, August 30, 2018

Lochey Swift defeats Filthy Phantom (No. 1) and Sanya Bay at Tara Raceway last week.

Monarto South trainer Tony Hinrichsen continued his successful run this year at Tara Raceway’s time-graded fixtures, landing a double at last week’s meeting with Lochey Swift and Trouble Waters.

Actually, Hinrichsen ran the quinella in the Trackside Meats Stake (400 m), Lochey Swift and Filthy Phantom, with only a neck separating the littermates, finishing over the top of Sanya Bay in 23.65 seconds.

And in the Gambier Vets Stake (600 m) Trouble Waters came from a fair way back to grab Oemi Allen close to home for a half length win in 35.91 seconds.

The 24 kilogram white and black bitch, sold originally as a pup for $10,000, has now won two races at Tara Raceway and one at Gawler since Hinrichsen purchased her in early June for $2000.

“It wasn’t that I was really looking for another racing dog but more so a bitch that I could breed with later on,” he said.

“So when this daughter of boom sire Fernando Bale and Hope’s Up came up for sale I jumped at the opportunity because of her outstanding bloodlines.”

By El Galo out of Little Looper, Hope’s Up won 39 races, ran 22 minor placings and amassed $86,000 in stakemoney. Her litter to Fernando Bale also includes Waterloo Kate ($31,000), Abuzz ($22,000) and Uptime Girl ($13,000).

Hope’s Up is also a half-sister to former SA champion sprinter Worm Burner, a winner of 48 races and close to $400,000 in stakemoney.
