Budd Sidewinder salutes for Markham
Busselton’s Budd Sidewinder continued his form with an all- the-way win in the Callows Southern Stars Series on Friday, January 5.
The Four A Reason four-year-old trained by Michael Callagari started safely from the stand and was sent forward to take an early lead for driver Ash Markham.
Abetta Tiny Dancer continued her run of good form when the mare took out the third heat of the Albies Sweetheart Series.
Starting off 30m, reinsman Kim Young set the mare forward to sit outside the leader and when asked for a supreme effort the mare proved too strong for stablemate Lady Azalea, both trained by Matthew Scott.
Collie horse Hillbilly Time scored a tough win in the Geoff Foster Memorial when he worked hard early to face the breeze and pulled clear for driver Trent Wheeler to defeat Our Bobbydazzler.
Trent also drove the Matthew Scott-trained Riri Rihanna in the Tax Taxi Graduation.
The mare placed second in her previous two starts and was due a change of fortune.
It came with a well-timed run from near-last to hold off a fast-finishing Mossdale Flynn. The Lou Torrent Memorial produced a start of long-priced winners when Riverdale Joker sat parked in the breeze and drew clear in the late stages to hold off Five Star Major.
Cavalry Call reversed fair form when the five-year-old came with a well-timed run from midfield for driver Ryan Bell to grab frontrunner My Names Bob.
Jax Or Better closed the night out for trainer Mark Lee with a well-timed run for driver Shane Young to hold off Kamendale Lass.
The next meeting is on Friday, January 12.
The first race starts at 7.06pm.
