FIZZING OPENS MEADOWLANDS ACCOUNT
Former Kentuckiana Lodge pacer Fizzing has opened his winning account in North America with a Sunday, December 29 (NZ time) win at the Meadowlands, New Jersey.
Now five, the Mach Three-Frizzante entire did a good job in West Australia, after being sold out of the Cran Dalgety stable, winning 12 across the Tasman and taking his earnings to $135,811.
A winner of the Listed Classic $25,000 Garrards Horse & Hound Botra Cup last July, Fizzing left for North America two starts later with an Australasian record of 15 wins from 46 starts.
He’d placed in two of his previous six New York starts for the Shaun Vallee stahle, then punched out from the five barrier to lead early in a $11,500 pace on Sunday, before easing to third, then finishing best in 1:52.2 (fifths).
Fizzzing, who rated 1:55.2 over 1950m in his Addington maiden two years ago, won three of 13 NZ starts for the Cran Dalgety stable.
