Bullet Shoots Down Turbo In A Thriller

They covered 645m but when they crossed the line there was only a head separating Billys Bullet and Supreme Turbo in the 2015 Partex Marking Systems Prestige. We are only in January but you will be lucky to see a more thrilling race all year.

 

Cast your mind back twelve months and the Mark Wallis trained Blonde Razor was caught on the line by the Stuart Buckland trained Scala Dromin. This time around it was Stuart who had the front runner in the form of Supreme Turbo 8/1. He showed electric early-pace and connections must have had one hand on the trophy and the £6,000 to-the-winner cheque. Mark Wallis trained Billys Bullet 7/4F though had other ideas, he is strong over this kind of trip and after turning second he mustered up a huge effort to reel in Turbo right on the line in a very fast 39.07. The time was truly remarkable given the going was -30, the track-record was set all the way back in 2000 by Palace Issue in 39.01.

 

This was a quality race and the third Wiki Waki Woo 7/2 and fourth Dinzeo 4/1 ran with huge credit only being beaten a further 0.75L and Head respectively. The first four home look to have a very exciting year ahead of them. It would also be fool hardy to write off Droopys Kolarov and Jaytee Osprey both will surely have better nights.

 

MARK WALLIS ON BILLYS BULLET

 

'What a great race that was, exactly what we want to see in finals. Supreme Turbo ran a blinder but it is sweet revenge for last year, Billys Bullet is very strong, the 645m is on the sharp side but he ran a blinder. I did not think he was going to get there, I'm so pleased for the connections. A brilliant race that's topped a fabulous weekend for the kennel and now we've won our first Prestige. Must say a big thank-you to the sponsors Partex for everything they've done we must not forget about them'.

 

BILLY BOYLE (OWNER)

 

'He ran an absolute corker, it was nerve wrecking but he got there when it mattered. I've been unlucky in big races but to be fair he is a class dog, the best dog I've owned. I think he's exceptional but prefer to let him do the talking. I think there is plenty left in the dog. I owned his dam and it means so much for him to win this'.

 

SID HUETT (KENNEL-HAND)

 

'Very nice dog, look forward to having a lot of fun with him this year'.
