PANSPACIFICFLIGHT gelding Wattlebank Flyer posted a best time of 1:55.2 when he won his eighth race on the same track, Albion Park in Brisbane, on 03 October.
The six-year-old led from the start in the 1660-metre sprint and gave those back in the field no chance with a 55.5 second closing half mile. He’s proving to be a good bread-and-butter horse for his Queensland owners. Wattlebank Flyer is out of the Courage Under Fire mare Careful Seznicki.
Of Panspacificflight’s New Zealand-bred progeny, only Wick (13 wins), Last Flight In (11), Little Rascal (11) and Glenisla (10) have won more races. Wattlebank Flyer won one race for Canterbury trainer Tim Trathen before he was exported.
