Rocky TAB meeting winner has rivals Running Scared



GLADSTONE'S Lord Glenbury certainly tried hard enough, but was outclassed by an impressive Running Scared in yesterday's Rockhampton TAB meeting at Callaghan Park.

The regally-named five-year-old put in a brave effort to finish fourth, but was one of a number of horses in a different class to the in-form winner.

Running Scared, the son of Lion Hunter, started as a red-hot $1.30 favourite and even though he ran off the track in the straight, scored a comfortable victory.

Unfortunately for trainer Lee Kiernan, his other hope of the day Errol Street was a late scratching.

Kiernan will now shift his focus to tomorrow's Thangool meeting where he saddles up Outlay in the Class 3 plate.

Keeping on the racing theme, look out for former Gladstone jockey Brad Pengelly to be among the winners at today's Sunshine Coast TAB race meeting.

Pengelly, who is dominating the jockeys premiership at Corbould Park, has five rides on the program.

His best are easily the Bruce McLachlan trio of Zeakial (race 2), Ontheroadtonowhere (race 4) and Jackpot Jazz (race 7).
