SHANLYN JOANEY produced the best win of her career when she powered her way to a three-length win over Megastar Spargo in a strong grade four event over 461 metres at Tattersall’s Park last night (Thursday).

It was the Graeme Moate-trained bitch’s second win in the space of a week.

Shanlyn Joaney began fairly from box three but mustered speed once balanced and engaged in a battle with Megastar Spargo to the home turn with Megastar Spargo gaining a half-length advantage turning for home.

But that’s when Shanlyn Joaney’s strength chimed in, stopping the clock at 26.17s which was a personal best over the trip.

The well bred bitch forged clear and extended her lead over the concluding stages to hit the line three lengths clear of Megastar Spargo with Bold Vista over three lengths away third and just in advance of Western Ruby.

Shanlyn Joaney is raced by the NSW-based Houndog Syndicate that is managed by Shannon Larson.
