Race 6 – Aldebaran Park Lenin Trotters Free For All – This main event will see a total of $20,000 in prize money on the line. Red Hot Tooth will start as the favourite here thanks to her last start win by an immense ten lengths at the end of her last campaign. She will resume here after a near 6 month spell. She has won previously first up and will be right at home at this track and over this distance. Expect her to be very strong in this. Sparkling Success has been in strong form since resuming, featuring in all of his three runs so far, picking up a win two races back. He has 21 feature finishes in his 25 race career and is in close to peak form right now. Will be a big win chance if the favourite doesn’t fire in her first up run. Vincennes is priced further back despite being in great form in his two runs since resuming. Will be in the mix.
Betting: Red Hot Tooth $2.45; Sparkling Success $5.50; Maori Time $5.50; Sky Petite $7.50; Sundons Courage $8.00; Vincennes $9.00; Glenferrie Burn $11.00; Heavenly Sister $13.00; Tough Monarch $18.00.
