4yo Bay Gelding

Four-year-old gelding, Pure Deal by Dundeal out of Elegant Attire had recent races up North though a trip down south proved valuable, second up from a spell when scoring at Echuca on May, 14 over 2100m.
Pure Deal was contesting on a heavy 8 at 0 to 58 hcp class under Aaron Lynch piloted the runner to score a convincing 3.75 length win after travelling towards the tale of the field at the 800m, took the lead with 400m to go and raced away to score in advance of Our Cavalier with Aragon the third runner in over the staying type trip.
A great performance so early in the prep over the staying type journey.

Four-year-old brown or black Mare, Gee Bee Ess, by Testa Rossa out of Nubian took only five runs to score a maiden victory for a valuable team of connections when scoring at Cranbourne on the 27 of May over 1200 m when competing on a soft (5) surface for Fllies and Mares scored the maiden victory under Thomas Stockdale from barrier (1).
Gee Bee Ess traveled better than midfield via the 800m, improving by the 400m as the mare raced to the lead to beat home Jebel Hafeet from Angel Of Boom with our runner at improving $8-1 odds.
Gee Bee Ess proved her hoof was heavily on the till prior to the victory after solid performance previously at Bendigo, Sale and Echuca lead to the maiden win.
Good luck to all connected with your runners throughout the month of June. (Team Laming)
