The partnership of trainer Ray Williams and driver Aldo Cortopassi’s strong month continued at Pinjarra this afternoon, notching up another winner with exciting pacer Magnificent Storm.

In conditions that matched his name, Magnificent Storm turned in another dominant display in the Contact @ 3YO Pace at the Paceway.

Magnificent Storm, who won on Australian debut last Tuesday night at Gloucester Park, showed there was plenty to like long term with a 9.2m win in the gloomy conditions.

The American Ideal gelding worked to the front from barrier three and never looked in any danger of being beaten.

Magnificent Storm rated 1.59.6 for the mile and ran home in a slick 57.7, given the rain-soaked track.

Since the start of the month, Williams and Cortopassi have teamed up for six winners and two placings from 12 starters.

They very nearly scored a seventh win for the month in the Allwood Stud – Breeding Your Future Champions Pace (2185m) with Shadow Roll, who went down a neck to Kilowatt Kid in a gripping battle down the home straight.

Kilowatt Kid had to sit in the breeze for much of the last mile but was strong enough at the finish to score his third win in four starts in Australia.

It was the third leg of a winning treble on the day for Greg and Skye Bond and Ryan Warwick, who also teamed up to score with Parmesan in the Rock N Roll World – Pedigree of the Future Pace (1684m).

The Betterthancheddar gelding has now scored eight wins from 12 starts in his short career to date.

Rebel With A Grin’s win in the Allwood Stud Stallions Pace (2631m) was the first winner on the day for Warwick and the Bond stable.

Chris Voak also enjoyed a winning treble on the day, steering Chumani, Star Of Willoughby and Classic Choice to victory in the first half of the day.

Meanwhile, three-time WA Pacing Cup winning driver Clint Hall has been disqualified for eight years after stewards found him guilty on three separate charges.
