Four horses with Southern connections had a good night at the office at Gloucester Park in Perth on Friday night.

Eloquent Mac – One of four winners with Southland connections in WA on Friday

The southern winning streak started in the first race when Rakasinc won for trainer Nathan Turvey.

The Changeover gelding, bred by Brendan Fahy has won eight races this season. He started his racing career in New South Wales, winning two races for John McCarthy before transferring  to Western Australian in December 2019.

Rakasinc is a half –brother to Rakarazor the winner of twelve races and Rakarebel which won twenty five races. Rakarebel was trained initially by Peter Hunter at Ryal Bush before heading to WA where he won his first eight races for Gary Hall.

Fahy of Rakauhauka still has a share in Rakasinc.

In the very next race Mach Three gelding Eloquent Mac won his eleventh race. He was bred by former Southlander Michael Turner and was developed next door to the Fahy property by Clark Barron.

He had two starts as a two year old for Barron before being sold to clients of Gary Hall.

He’s out of Letatalk which was bred by Tuapeka Lodge.

Washington VC gelding Sir Galahad won the next race. He’s also trained by Gary Hall.

The six year old was bred by Vin Nally and has had limited starts because of injuries.

Friday night’s race was only his fifteenth. He’s won eight times and has been placed in four other starts.

Three races later the night of success was completed for southern breeders when The Buckeye Bullet bred by former Southland trainer Tony Barron won for trainer Nathan Turvey.

By Well Said out of Titan Bloss, The Buckeye Bullet won his first race at Addington before running third at his next start.

He has now won ten races in Australia.

The night would have been capped off if either Chicago Bull bred in Winton, or Galactic Star bred by Tuapeka Lodge had won the feature pacing race. Chicago Bull ran second beaten by a half a head while Galactic Star ran fifth.

Chicago Bull is fast closing in on two million dollars in stakes  money. The Bettor’s Delight gelding has won $1,898,531. to date.
