Trainer Peter Anderson had mixed feelings when his promising mare I Am Special led throughout for Morgan Woodley in the $35,000 WASBA Breeders Stakes (1730m) on Friday night. While delighted to win a feature, Anderson could not help think about the following race (Sires) and what might have been had he not lost young champion James Mathew to a sudden illness earlier this year.

Champion pacer James Matthew is fighting for his life. The Parsons Den three-year-old is critically ill and under constant care at the Belvoir equine clinic in West Swan. James Matthew, a winner of 12 of his 17 starts for stakes of $240,981, has a serious infection of the intestine, and veterinary surgeons have been working day and night in a bid to help him to recover.

Henley Brook-based trainer Darryl Howes is a fireman by trade and his Village Jasper gelding Benditlikebekam 'burnt' at least one of the bookmakers last night when Brad Stampalia reined the 8YO to an all-the-way victory in the $16,500 Find Thirty Every Day Stakes (1730m mobile). Darryl actually used to share the same shift at Perth Airport with well-known satchel swinger Steve Mulhall and even though Steve lost his money on the race, I'm sure he would have still been happy to see his former colleague gain a rare Friday night victory.

The victory of Hy Royale in last nights $17,500 Point Fraser Discretionary Handicap (2503m stand) reaffirmed a couple of things to me. Firstly that Aiden 'Bull' Warwick is a very good trainer and secondly that Mark Reed has few peers at rating a pacer. With Hy Royale, Has The Answers, Fourmoore and Sportivo appearing to be the four major winning chances, it was highly probable the pacer that gained the early ascendancy over his rivals would be significantly advantaged.

Five-year-old gelding Fourmoore, bred and owned by former Australian Test batsman Mark Waugh, maintained his superb form and he graduated to open-class company when he outclassed his rivals in the 2503m Milwaukee Handicap at Gloucester Park on Friday night.

Champion juvenile pacer James Matthew is ready to bounce back to top form when he contests the Desperate Housewives Stakes at Gloucester Park on Friday night.

Daring tactics by teenager Morgan Woodley paid handsome dividends when rejuvenated nine-year-old Morganator gave a magnificent performance to win the Be Active Walk Instead Handicap over 2503m at Gloucester Park on Friday night.

Sensational two-year-old James Matthew lit up a cold, wet and miserable night at Gloucester Park on Friday night July 4th, with yet another scintillating display of raw speed as he annihilated his rivals in the $100,000 State Sires series for colts and geldings.

Rangy gelding James Matthew gave further convincing proof that he is the best two-year-old pacer in Australia when he annihilated his rivals in the $100,000 Veolia Environmental Services Pearl Classic at Gloucester Park on Friday night.
