'Kahnage' at Bung Fritz Day

Female jockeys were ‘on fire’ winning seven of the eight races at the Gawler and Barossa Jockey Club meeting on Wednesday, November 29.

Leading jockey Jamie Kah committed her own ‘Kahnage’ by winning three races including the feature Gawler Hi Beam Car and Pet Wash Bung Fritz Cup.

Others to ride winners were Anna Jordsjo, Kayla Crowther, Raquel Clark and Clare Lindop.

Apprentice Justin Huxtable was the sole male to greet the judge.

The Hawaiian shirts worn by the members of the Bung Fritz Club were right at home on a hot Wednesday afternoon.

Colourful shirts and shorts were the order of the day and the Bung Fritz Club members celebrated the trophy presentation of their Cup by singing their special Christmas carol.

Top jockey Jamie Kah brought up a winning treble from the first four races when she took out the main event, the Hi Beam Car and Pet Wash Bung Fritz Cup (1500m) on the Tony McEvoy-trained Cobbmore.

A red-hot $1. 70 favourite, Cobbmore sat back in the field before Kah moved him up to challenge as the field turned for him.

The four-year-old drew clear to score by a length from Red Dazzle ($6), with Supreme Polarity ($3.80), a neck away third.

Assistant trainer Calvin McEvoy said Cobbmore had come back in good order from a spell.

“Jamie rode him beautifully today,” McEvoy said.

“She was patient early, then timed his run perfectly.

“We will look for a suitable 1600m event, around the bigger Morphettville track before stepping him up even further in distance.

“Cobbmore has been a consistent performer and looks headed for a good preparation and I’m sure he can pick up a city race.”

The excellent winning run of trainer Lloyd Kennewell continued with track specialist Angelucci winning the Barossa Volkswagen Class Two Handicap (1700m).

Heavily backed from $2.25 into $1.85 favourite, Angelucci won his third race from as many starts at Gawler, scoring by a length from Cool Fonzy ($2.80) with Moonies Choice ($31), a head away third.

With Kennewell, who had a double at Ballarat on Saturday, now in Perth with Viddora, senior part-owner Luke Koumi greeted winning jockey Justin Huxtable on his return.

Mr Koumi said the winner would be set for a 2000 metre race in Adelaide following his win.

“He has been racing well but not having much luck,” Mr Koumi said.

“His own finishing sectionals have been very good, but he has just had to give away too much of a start.

“He has always shown ability but there is no doubt gelding him had helped his form turnaround.”

Strathalbyn trainer Philippe Huserot believes regular trips to the beach is the secret to good form by five-year-old Silent Ice.

Ridden by Clare Lindop, Silent Ice ($4.60) finished best to win the Goldin Farms Class One Handicap (1200m) by three-quarters of a length from Ewan Mine ($6.50) with Amative ($10), a length away third.

The five-year- old was a recent Morphettville placegetter and Huserot believed the gelding had been close to a win.

By the Angaston-based Cornerstone Stud stallion Good Journey, which had also sired the previous winner Dancing Journey, Silent Ice has had a few trainers but judging by today’s win is enjoying life with Huserot.

The next Gawler meeting is on Saturday, December 23.
