Ecklin South trainer Peter Fulton landed his first Tara Raceway winner last Friday when Noosa Parade scored an impressive win in the time-graded JB Irrigation Stake (512 m).
Noosa Parade, who had put the writing on the wall for a Tara Raceway win when running a 1¾ length second to Lektra Lucy on September 22, turned the tables on that greyhound on Friday when leading all the way to win by 2¼ lengths in a pretty handy 30.12 seconds.
Fulton, 24, who has been training for four years, has now won four races with Noosa Parade which he took over 12 months ago for the three-member Noosa Fishing Syndicate prior to the black dog commencing his racing career in January.
Whelped in January 2015, there’s not much wrong with his breeding as he’s by high profile sire Collision out of the unraced Miss Black Fern and boasts a couple of handy littermates in Kiwi Collision and Night King.
Miss Black Fern also has an interesting pedigree, being by the Irish bred Spiral Nikita out of another unraced bitch in Miss Yap (Brett Lee x Leprechaun Miss) with this litter including Hurunui Hitman, a winner of 20 races and $182,000 in prizemoney.
Noosa Parade, also a winner at Warrnambool and Ballarat, will now line up on Tuesday night from box five over 485 metres for what will be his first race start at Horsham.
