Should Have Won & Is No Doubt Now A Definite Sydney City Highway Candidate!!!

What A Run By Clap Chap Who Ran An Amazing 2nd At Taree Over 2000m Watch Replay!!! When Missed The Kick & Had To Go Back To Last & Then Stormed Home To Place 2nd On The Line!!! Simply Amazing Because He Is A Natural Front Runner & To Come from Last After Missing The Kick at The Start Shows How Versatile He Really Is & They Definitely Don’t Make Too Many Stayers Like This Bloke Anymore, So His Price Goes Up Accordingly Because At His Rating In NSW, He Could Easily Win His Next 3 Races On The Trot Which Amounts To 30-40k In Prizemoney & Not To Mention What A Sydney City Highway Race Win Is Worth!!!

Superb On Pace Triple Winning Victorian Rated NSW 50 Provincial Country Galloper On The Market!!!

Most Consistent With 18 Top 5 Finishes from 31 Starts & Most Versatile Racing from 1600m To 2200m!!!

Ran A Mighty 5th 2 Starts Ago At Grafton Placing 5th Over 2220m, When Was Still In Front At The 200m Mark & Was Beaten Only 3 Lengths In A Top Class Field Inc The 2nd Placegetter “Real Time Warrior” Who Only Beat This Bloke By .6 of A Length & Then Came Out Next Start & Won A Highway Race At Randwick, So Boy!!! Talk About This fine Front Running Stayer Having So Much Potential & Scope To Go Through The Rest of His Grades In The Right Areas 🙂

In Fact The 3rd & 4th Placegetters Who Just Beat Clap Chap By A Long Head & Neck Both Won Their Previous Races At Murwillumbah & Lismore, So This Bloke Has His Foot On The Till on These Type Tracks & Clap Chap Was Actually Set for A Ballina Race Over 2150m Next Start & Was One of The Favourites As Well & Then The Meeting Got Called of Due To The Rain, So This Was His Race for Sure & Then Had To Go To Grafton In A Tougher Field & A Longer Distance As Well, So Get Him Back To The Ballina Type Areas & Off Ya Go!!!

So Completely Forget He Went Around Last Start At Grafton As The 2350m Journey Was A Tad Too far for Him Considering He Copped Barrier 10 & Had To Use Up A Heap of Petrol Getting To The Front & To Be Fair Was Still In 3rd Place Right Up Until The 300m Mark & Did Kick On To Fight off The Back Markers Anyway, So Ideally Suits 1600m fresh To 2200m

Previous 9 Starts In Victoria 1st At Colac 2000m, 4th At Stawell 2000m, 5th At Ararat 2000m Then Spell & Then First Up 4th At Casterton 1400m, 2nd At Murtoa 1600m, 2nd At Donald 2008m, 3rd At Coleraine 2250m, 4th At Coleraine 2250m & 4th At Casterton Last Start Over 2000m, So Talk About Being A Model of Consistency & from 1400m To 2250m & On Good To Heavy Tracks As Well, So Talk About Versatility Plus Plus Plus!!!

Rated A Perfect 54-55 In Qld So Would Make An Ideal Front Running Stayer In That Area As Well As Northern NSW for Sure & At This Amazing Price of 11k With One TAB Win & Ya Quickly Out of Him 🙂

Wow!!! This Fine Front Running Fella Has Miles & Miles of Potential for Any On Pace Staying Provincial Country Tracks Around Australia Inc Ballina, Lismore, Beaudesert, Warwick, Toowoomba, Gatton, Kilcoy Rockhampton, Mackay, Townsville, The Gold Coast, The Sunshine Coast & The List Goes On & On 🙂

Owner Has Only Had Him for A Handful of Starts & Knows He Will No Doubt Win Races, Though Has Very Genuine Personal Reasons for Moving Him On & All Vet Checks Are Welcome Anyway, So This Is One of Those Unfortunate Decisions The Owner Had No Choice But To Make 🙂

Clap Chap Will Definitely Be A Nice Front Running Country Cups Type As Well One Day & Once He Wins A Few More Races As Well Because He Is Only A 6yo Stayer Which Is Young for A Stayer Type Regardless & So Has Plenty of Time & Preps Left In Him To Get To This Level 🙂

Talk About A Mr Consistent Front Runner!!!…
