An impressive start for Oz Racing Syndications new-comers at Mount Barker today, with an early double that netted a nice profit.

First starter MANHATTAN CAT ($10.00) for Nev Parker commenced midfield in the Magic Millions Sales Maiden 1200m, and hoop Mitchell Pateman tracked the Statue Of Liberty 3yo with precision into the straight to produce a dominant debut victory – a topresult for a horse that has turned it all around.

SHOTGUN ($2.70 fav) for Darren McAuliffe came into the Grapes & Gallops Maiden 1300m well in the market following a promising run-on performance on debut, and despite starting slowly – William Pike was able to stoke our Bushranger 3yo forward on the turn – and that was that – Shotgun putting in adazzling late charge to secure a 2 length winning buffer.

For the record: the double paid >$27.00 – hope you got on…
