Gold Nugget bonanza

Now prepared at Sutton Grange, former West Australian galloper Coming Around comfortably took out the feature event at Ballarat races on Sunday.
Trainer Brent Stanley said he would see how the five-year-old pulled up, with future races likely to include some country cups and races just below Group 1 level.
The Mortimer Petroleum Gold Nugget, run over 1600m, attracted a small field, and topweight Coming Around started a $1.70 favourite and was ridden by record breaking Perth jockey William Pike.
Positioned perfectly in the run, Coming Up moved up on the home turn and then held off Barry The Baptist to win by three quarters of a length, with outsider Cape Richards third.
From 18 starts, Coming Around has now notched up seven wins and earnt stakes of $332,940.
Western Australia’s top trainers, Grant and Alana Williams, presently have several quality gallopers in work at the Sutton Grange training complex, and have high hopes of winning feature events in Victoria this spring.
