LIGHTLY raced dog Sonny’s Brindle has made quite an impact since he arrived in Tasmania three months ago.
Last Thursday night in Hobart he gave his rivals a galloping lesson at his first outing on the Tattersall’s Park circuit.
He flew the lids from box five to quickly set up a handy lead and he stretched that in the run home to hit the line over eight lengths clear of National Vision with Macey’s Dream 1-1/4 lengths astern.
It was his third win in succession and his time of 26.14 for a first try on the track was a sensational effort.
Sonny’s Brindle (Our Spence-Sonny’s Fool) joined the Joey Sherriff kennel with handy form from only three starts in Victoria.
He won at Sale on debut in mid December and followed up with a third at the same track (440m) but failed at his only other try, also at Sale.
Sherriff sent him around at Devonport for his first Tassie outing and he finished fourth but over 13 lengths from the winner Regent Shiraz.
But a week later he tackled a juvenile over 452m and he gave his rivals a galloping lesson, scoring by four lengths.
He then delivered a similar performance at the same venue a month later in a strong grade five event over 452 metres.
