Turanza Bale Wins the Group 3 Silver Bullet

Aside from the highly anticipated Group 2 City of Hume Cup Final, the other notable race held Monday night at The Meadows was the Group 3 Sport 927 Silver Bullet (525m) won by Turanza Bale a length ahead of Velocette with Dyna Lachlan a further two and three quarters of a length back in third.

Turanza Bale proved too quick on the night for the recent Group 1 Topgun place-getters Velocette and Dyna Lachlan in the $15 000 to-the-winner event. Runner-up Velocette won the Group 1 Australian Cup and Dyna Lachlan was runner-up in the Group 1 National Sprint Championship, so the competition was fierce.

It was a glorious and very lucrative night for trainer Graeme Bate whose runner Amity Bale took home the Hume Cup in magnificent fashion following his quinella in the Silver Bullet as he is the trainer for both Turanza Bale and Velocette.
