How good is Keayang Cullen? The 'Terang Terminator' said hasta la vista to harness racing superstar Smoken Up and a field of other strong free-for-all horses in tonight’s Melton City Council Sprint over 1720m.
Glen Craven said post-race the Marg Lee-trained gelding was improving with every race and tonight had won comfortably.
“We didn’t take him up to Brisbane … instead there are plenty of good races down here at the moment so we’ll keep hopefully picking them off,” he said.
“The first aim will be the Breeders Crown Free for All.
“Hopefully he can continue improving with each run.”
Keayang Cullen went 1:53.9 tonight, finding the lead easily from his wide front-row draw before reeling off comfortable sectional times of 28.8secs, 30.6secs, 27.8secs and 27.7secs.
Scott Stewart trained-and-driven Bitobliss showed a win isn’t far off with a strong second placing, while superstar veteran Smoken Up battled on for third after punching the breeze throughout.
