TALENTED pup Miki Moto Mite ended the juvenile chapter of his racing career with a brilliant win in the Launceston club’s Breeders Classic final over 515 metres on Monday night.

The Gary Fahey-trained dog showed blistering early speed to cross to the fence from box seven and once on the lure he gave his rivals a galloping lesson.

Miki Moto Mike sped clear down the back stretch to set up a winning break and went on score by almost eight lengths from Three Tradies with Bosco over four lengths astern.

The dog impressed in winning his qualifying heat and then dead-heated with Buckle Up Dozer in their semi-final last Monday week.

Miki Moto Mike was bred by his owner Brett Davis who is a thoroughbred race commentator and race caller in Hong Kong.

Davis spent about two years in Tasmania as a caller and race day coordinator with TOTE Sport Radio in Hobart before moving to Hong Kong.

During his time in Tasmania he purchased Brami’s First and when she finished racing Davis opted to breed and Miki Moto Mike is from her third litter.

This latest win took Miki Moto Mike’s win tally to seven from 14 starts with four minor placings helping to take his stake earnings to almost $14,000.

While Miki Moto Mike was impressive there was a lot to like about the effort of the runner-up that stuck to his task at the business end of the race and Bosco made up good ground to fill the minor placing.
