Making Shadows Hangs On

On a wet Friday night at the Sunshine Coast the consistent Making Shadows broke his maiden status when winning over 1400m on a heavy 9 rated surface.

Although not the best away and forced to travel in what was possibly the worst part of the track all race Making Shadows had the fitness to cope in the testing conditions.

Approaching the home turn Browne looked to push his way out but instead was held up and forced to stay closer to the fence on entering the straight.

Approaching the 200 metre point Browne was able to get through on Making Shadows about three away from the fence and establish a two length break before Drovers Yarn flashed home late to be in the photo finish.

After a few nervous moments all were relieved when number one Making Shadows was declared the winner.

Congratulations to all the owners on the break through win by Making Shadows.

On this occasion Making Shadows was strapped by Lyn Henderson.
