Bullock producers five winners at Launceston


By Mike Hill

TOP Tasmanian trainer Anthony Bullock had a night out last month, producing a five-win haul, a trifecta and two quinellas.

The man, who has won 11 of the past 12 trainers premierships in Tassie, was on fire at a Launceston Monday night meeting.

But it wasn\’t his best ever night.

In 2018, Bullock had greyhound racing enthusiasts running for the record books after he trained an incredible tally of seven winners at a Hobart meeting.

At the time, he said he had enjoyed many successful nights during his career but had never experienced a haul of seven.

\”I\’ve had any number of trebles over the years and my fair share of nights where I\’ve trained four winners and then the odd five thrown in but never six or more so to win seven races was something special that\’s for sure,\” said Bullock.
Last month\’s success included winners – Just Mercy ($8), He\’s A Minstrel ($1.80 fav), Tah Nora ($5), Bridwood Marshal ($10) and Ryan Keeping ($1.75 fav) – as well as seven placegetters.

Seven trainers across the country rugged up four winners at their respective meetings.

Leading WA conditioners David Hobby and Chris Halse landed quartets at different Mandurah meetings.

Hobby was successful with Sunset Wildfire ($1.40 fav), Farthing Monelli ($5.40), Japonica Monelli ($2.10 fav) and Cinnamon Monelli ($15.10), while Halse\’s winners were Chloe\’s The Boss ($4.50), Vitalogy ($6.10), Vapour Blaze ($5.50) and Sir Monty $2.40).

South Australian Ashlee Griffiths produced four winners – Charlie Bender ($1.40 fav), Uncle Drew ($2.90), Select Prize ($1.95 fav) and Select Hypo ($3.60) – at Murray Bridge.

Leading Victorian trainer Mark Delbridge rugged up his quartet at Geelong – Man Absconded ($1.80 fav), Fortuna Bale ($3.60), Ezra Bale ($2.70) and Leyenda ($2.60) – and Steele Bolton was the punters\’ pal at Darwin, leading in four winning favourites – Nay Glee $1.20, Black Rock $3, Swoop A Loop $2.80 and Lock In $3.10.

Queensland\’s Wayne Scott and Jamie Hosking were also in the money.

In a training triumph, Scott produced four of the eight heat winners in the Ipswich Cup series.

He was successful with Farmor Beach ($1.40 fav) – the eventual Cup winner – Farmor Watch Me ($6), Fernando Beach ($2.50 fav) and Mayoress ($5.50).

Hosking had success with Vitesse Earn, Detention ($8), Ritza Rocket ($2) and Columbian King ($1.90 fav) at Capalaba.
