Miss Crazed Back to Winning Habit
31st March 2022
Oamaru trainer Phil Williamson was not surprised to see Miss Crazed return to winning form at the Wairio Trotting Club meeting at Winton today.
Her form line was looking poor, but there were reasons.
“She went poor last start and when we investigated she had a virus. So we backed off and she’s come back like her old self,” said Phil.

“She’s a capable mare but she’s getting on a tough mark. Nothing is easy for her now. They had to trot 3-04 today which is a good trot.”
Miss Crazed is owned by Woodlands Stud and is by Crazed out of the Pegasus Spur mare Miss Pegasus who’s a daughter of champion mare Merinai.
“I’m pleased for them. She’ll probably go to the stud next year. I’d love to get a mile race for her because she’d have no problems going under two minutes.”
Miss Pegasus won nine races including seven for the Williamsons.
“She was a lovely mare too. This mare is not quite as good as her. Her size is a wee bit against her because when they’re that big it takes a while for them to mature.”

In today’s 2400 metre trot Miss Crazed was driven by Kerryn Tomlinson and she settled well off the early rush. When Don’t Ask improved three wide with 700 metres to run Tomlinson jumped on the back to get a cart home, but was left three wide inside the last 500 metres.
Leader Port Pegasus looked to be in for the win 50 metres short on the finishing line but Miss Crazed came with plenty of willingness to get up, and beat Port Pegasus by a nose.
It was the mare’s first win since winning on the grass at Wingatui at the beginning of December.
Meanwhile Allamericanlover added to the list of candidates for next month’s Southern Belle Speed Series Final when she won her mile in a respectable 1-53.0.

The four year old who is trained by Steve and Amanda Telfer brought respectable metropolitan form south and in the hands of the stable’s junior driver Ellie Barron she proved too strong for Mabalene.
