Justin Prentice’s classy mover Bettors Destroya snapped her lengthy winless streak on Saturday night at Donaldson Park. The pacey North Boyanup filly — who had been a consistent performer despite victory eluding her since November 2020 — scored by 2.6m from Nevermindthechaos in The Flying Painter 3YO Fillies Pace (1609m). Minor Catastrophe, driven by Capel’s Aiden De Campo, ran third. Piloted by Gary Hall Jr, the heavily backed three-year-old burst clear following the release of the mobile and enjoyed a tidy buffer over her rivals for the majority of the trip. Heading into the bell lap, De Campo managed to place Minor Catastrophe directly behind the leader, in a bid to figure in the finish. In the blink of an eye, the overall tempo rose several notches. Aware something was needed to upset the favourite, Shannon Suvaljko elected to send Nevermindthechaos three-wide down the back straight, which gave Hall Jr something to think about heading into the home turn. Although he was positioned in the sprint lane as the leading pack entered the straight, De Campo was denied space by Hall Jr, and the filly managed to see off her rivals comfortably. However the closest victory of the night came later in the Equissage Fillies and Mares Pace (2100m), with Bunbury’s Kitty Go Round pipping Shakira Blue by half a neck. It was a positive outcome for the mare, who initially created a false start after galloping. However all was forgotten quickly, as driver Emily Suvaljko managed to get her firing during the early stages, and the pair comfortably settled on the pegs for the remainder of the journey. Trailing by three quarters of a length with less than 400m to run, Hall Jnr sent Shakira Blue three-wide and the filly gradually began to eat away into the Bunbury mare’s lead. Facing stiff resistance — Shakira Blue to the outside and Juslikeroyalty nipping away on the pegs — Kitty Go Round and Suvaljko managed to hold their nerve in the dying seconds, to record the mare’s second victory in 2021.
