Addington Raceway runs an eleven race card on Friday with a number of races looking likely to hold the attention of harness racing fans.  

Arguably the highlight on the card would be the 4th race, the Compass Pools 2yr Mobile Pace. Over the 1980m the field showcases a limited two-stable offering with depth from both the All Stars and R Dunn barns.

Punters and breeding boffins will have a field day here with the daughter of Adore Me in Darling Me (Adore Me and the smiling All Stars team pictured) making her racing debut. The 2yr old has been most impressive in all public workouts and trials and should take a fair amount of beating. Other prospects to make their debuts include a son of Bettor’s Delight in Pace N Pride who will be driven by Natalie Rasmussen and a son of Sweet Lou in Aladdin. Aladdin, J Feiss owned, looks a most natural mover and shouldn’t be out of his depth here.

The remainder of the field includes a son of Art Major out of the nice mare in Minnie Moose and a Bettor’s Delight colt out of Solandra, a mare who has already left the eight time winner in Samskara.      

All of the above appear destined for careers of some worth. A pleasant and interesting watch seems assured.   

Other races to catch the eye include the 10th on the card the Curle Contracting Mobile Trot over the 1980m mobile. The race pits the 3yr-old rocket fuel propelled Cracker Hill against the All Stars trained Enhance Your Calm and the Greg and Nina Hope trained Midnight Dash, the latter of these rivals has been in most impressive form of late notching up two wins and two second placed finishes from his last four starts. His last start second coming in behind the flying Majestic Man.

The 11th and 12th races of the night are headlined by Spellbound, the 3 race winning daughter of Return to Gold and It’s All About Faith the big, rolling son of Captaintreacherous who has already shown that there’s more to him than just his glorious frame. The 2yr old has conjured up 1 win and 2 placed efforts from his three starts to date.

A good night of action at Addington with some genuinely interesting races.
