A NEW star was born in the group 2 (425m) heats of the Bendigo Cup on Saturday night when Typhoon Sammy, trained by four-time Bendigo Cup winner Jason Thompson, broke the course record of former superstar Shima Shine. Shima Shina had set the record in last year’s Cup heats with 23.353 seconds, but Typhoon Sammy sensationally surpassed that benchmark and continued his unbeaten record since arriving in Victoria. The son of Aston Dee Bee, the 2017 Melbourne Cup winner and a Bendigo Cup placeholder, Typhoon Sammy began his career with John and Glenda Dart in northern New South Wales and had won four straight wins for Thompson when he did his had a first taste of the group action. Drawn into box 1, from where he won four out of four, Typhoon Sammy was sensationally supported in the sixth of eight heats with $ 1.80, with Tiggerlong Tonk, the double winner of Group 1, the only other runner with $ 3.50 was in the single digits. Typhoon Sammy came running out of Rails Alley and was in a race against the clock when he defeated Tiggerlong Tonk by 3.5 lengths in a sparkling 23.281 seconds, a record-breaking length. It was his 16th win of 23 starts and justified comparisons with Thompson’s former superstar Black Magic Opal, the 2013 Melbourne Cup winner and Geelong 460m record holder. “I haven’t had a dog to compare to Black Magic Opal, but I think this dog in the sections and times it runs has confirmed what I said,” said Thompson after the race. “He’s just a very good dog. It takes 10 or 20 meters of free wheeling and then it explodes. â€Look, I think if Shima Shine had been walking around tonight he might have walked faster than him. “The track is in perfect shape and when the wind eased the conditions were perfect too.†He had a few things in his favor, with a good pull and a dog on his outside (Handsome Rhino) to give him space. “In the dream of an organizer, the three-time Country Cup winner Ferdinand Boy will meet the new record holder in the final on Saturday evening. a crack number four with a brave win in 23.52 seconds, his 30th win out of 52 starts. “He won three and he has a good chance of making it four. I wonder if there is a $ 100,000 bonus for winning four trophies, â€joked Geall, referring to the $ 50,000 bonus Ferdinand Boy received for winning three trophies twice when he had to react the pressure was on him. “The second fastest qualifying performance came from Dr. Tucker in the last run, with Bill McMahon’s self-bred speedster with 23.38 seconds, just outside of Shima Shine’s previous track record, on his only third start back from a break and The first appearance in Bendigo. Another intrigue to the finals will be the easily driven Paua Of Buddy, trained by Steve White, who had a record breaking final win at Warragul over 400m with an emphatic 23.59 sec win, his seventh win of 10 starts. Catani trainer Graeme Jose enjoyed an unforgettable night claiming a heat double courtesy of Grand Veteran Lots Of Chatter (23.54 sec) and Aston Shine (23.75 sec), with an expedition to Healesville last week’s weekend where both were successful paid off.
