2012 Bob Payne Summer Sprint box draw – heats summary

Golden Easter Egg winner Radley Bale successfully returned to the scene of the triumph when winning the first heat of the  $40,000 first prize 2012 Bob Payne Summer Sprint (520m) at Wentorth Park last night.

Radley Bale continued his love-affair with the track saluting in a quick 29.84 sec.

He recorded his fourth win in just five Wentworth Park starts in the heat that saw the demise of probably 2012 Bob Payne Summer Sprint series favourite Noble Pedro.

Radley Bale stepped outwards at the start bumping Main Drag and then raced to the front.

Kennelmate David Bale did his bit from box eight as he crossed sharply interfering with Noble Pedro.

Noble Pedro was still a chance but then knocked out of contention when Rybenbrook (box 4) smashed into him at the first turn.

Both dogs along with Gable Drum (box 6) caught on the duo’s outside, were no hope from that point.

Radley Bale was clear down the back straight with David Bale and Main Drag holding the placings ahead of Young Snozz (box 1).

Young Snozz circled the duo and came out after Radley Bale.

He railed up and missed by a neck with David Bale a long way back a clear third.

The 2012 Bob Payne Summer Sprint second heat impressively went to Oaks Road in 29.64 sec.

The first surprise was the slow getaway of favourite Fancy Dean (box 1) as Adam Meway (box 5) led.

Oaks Road (box 3) positioned up equal second with General Trigga going into the first turn of the 2012 Bob Payne Summer Sprint second heat.

Down the back, Oaks Road took the front as Adam Meway faded.

Oaks Road ran away to win by 5-3/4 lengths.

General Trigga narrowly held second in front of Fancy Dean who railed up.

The final heat went way of Kelly Bravo’s multiple Group 1 winner Kilty Lad who clocked 29.70 sec leading all the way.

A winner of 24 of his 48 starts, Kilty Lad from box 2 bounced straight to the front as Cold Fusion (box 1) was slow out.

The wide boxed runners position up behind with Undisputed Dos (box 6), Shereen Bale (box 7) and Dyna Kate (box 8) equal second going into the first turn.

Dyna Kate ran wide at that point and never recovered.

Kilty Lad held his opponents easily by over three lengths.

Undisputed Dos held on well for second while Shereen Bale nosed out Cold Fusion who railed late.
