DROPPING back to the short course in Hobart paid dividends for the connections of well bred dog Bulla Country in the Viv Beresford Free For All at Tattersall’s Park in Hobart last night.
Bulla Country (El Galo-Country Dawn) had finished well back at his previous three outings over the 461-metre trip in Hobart but dropping back to the 340-metres gave connections the desired result.
Wearing the pink vest the Michael Pearce-trained dog began well but not as quickly as Julia Fly’s that pounced when the lids opened from box three.
But it was obvious a long way out that Bulla Country had the leader’s measure.
He cruised alongside Julia Fly’s and half-way up the home straight he forged clear and went on to defeat Julia Fly’s by almost two lengths with Frytson running home well for third ahead of Hay Ty.
It was a strong win as Julia Fly’s was coming off a very impressive win over the same track and journey at her previous outing in Hobart a week earlier.
Frytson again ran wide in the home straight but stuck to his task.
