JAKKALBERRY FINN continued his love affair with his home track and extended the stable’s strong recent record with victory at the Sunshine Coast’s Sunday meeting.
Hot on the heels of the stable’s Doomben double the previous day, the 6YO capped a weekend treble from just seven runners as he returned to the winner’s enclosure with a determined display in the Class 3 Handicap (1800m).
Both the gelding’s previous wins had come at the Sunny Coast and he promptly added to his home track tally under Ben Thompson, who was in the saddle for the first time since the pair finished second at Doomben in September.
JAKKALBERRY FINN settled towards the rear of the field early on, but when Thompson peeled him to the outside shortly after rounding the home turn, the son of Jakkalberry clicked through his gears impressively to score by a length.
From his eight career starts at the Sunshine Coast, JAKKALBERRY FINN has now registered three wins and three minor placings.
Congratulations to his owners: Mr P G Boyce, Mr M B Henzell, Fossickers Plus 1, Mr D M White, Mr R Henzell, Mr G R Waters, Mr S L Webb, Mr T M Payten, Mr S J Miller, Mr J A Fitzpatrick, Mr T Ryan, Mr G K Wood, Mr M S Walton and Mr P P Saad.
