STAR sprinter Farmor Beach will be shooting for seven straight wins in Thursday night’s Motorhub Rising Stars Final (520m) at Albion Park.
But to do so the son of Fernando Bale will need to overcome box five and a star-studded line-up all vying for the tidy $17,500 first prize.
“It’s a very strong field and we’ve got box five to contend with so we’ll need a lot of luck,” said trainer Wayne Scott.
“The main thing for him on Thursday night is that he finds the rail. Whether he’s in front or midfield he just needs that fence. He rails like a bird around Albion Park and the best thing is he’s a winner.”
Winner at 12 of 19 career starts, Farmor Beach has been in intoxicating form for Churchable based Scott, last week’s gritty 29.77 heat win capping off six straight Albion Park victories.
“His heat effort was very gutsy; definitely one of his better wins,” Scott said.
“In the final his kennelmate Libby’s Girl is drawn inside him in box four and she’s generally quick out. Hopefully she can drag him across into the race and he can find that rail.”
Setting the pace for Thursday night’s finale is the Tony Zammit-trained Frieda Las Vegas, the powerhouse daughter of My Bro Fabio recording 29.65.
Other heats were annexed by Magical Hope in 29.86 and Hara’s Clyde in 29.91.
Frieda Las Vegas has drawn box six in the finale while Hara’s Clyde will exit box eight for Tony Brett, a draw he’s scored from on three of four occasions.
“It’s a very, very good field,” Scott added.
“If I had box one or two I’d be a lot more confident than I am. The main thing is he gets around safe and gets his chance.
“After Thursday night we’ll head towards the Ipswich Cup with him. He loves Ipswich as well, winning the Vince Curry earlier in the year.
“But we’ll get through Thursday night first and go from there. I couldn’t be happier with him going into the race.”
In another sensational siring performance, Fernando Bale boasts six of the eight Rising Star finalists on Thursday night.
