Hawley’s Wild Fire stars in thriller
It was the final race of the day in the very exciting Culturama 40 Horse race meet on Sunday August 3rd at the Indian Castle race track.
Race number three was initially expected to be the race of the day, even without MR. BIG PEPE who passed away recently.
In that race WILD CANDY came out tops in what was considered a ‘good race.’
However, excitement mounted in the final race of the day, as the four horses increased their pace and kept close to each other on the first leg.
In the final analysis, there were loud shrieks and screams as three of the horses headed down the home stretch, virtually ‘neck and neck.’
As they crossed the finish line, fans and stable personnel were claiming victory for their specific horses.
It came down to a video replay in slow motion to determine the top three places with HAWLEY’S WILD FIRE winning by a head in the final analysis.
The summary of the four races for the day is as follows:
3rd GREY GHOST
1st WILD CANDY
2nd BIG EVERYTIME
3rd LOWETTE’S HILL
1st HAWLEY’S WILD FIRE
2nd LADY BOSS
3rd SHAKEN SHAYE
The next race meet will be the big one on September 16th when the annual DAN BARTLETTE MEMORIAL STAKES will be held.
