Hot Currie dominates Clifford Park with Appo

The partnership between Ben Currie and Beau Appo was in full flight at Clifford Park on Saturday night.

Currie had a night out as the Toowoomba trainer prepared four of the six winners on the card, with Appo in the saddle for three of them.

The pair has teamed up and enjoyed plenty of success of late.

The meeting started in great fashion for them as Rockabella Boy hit the front with about 500 metres to go and ran on for a two-length win over She’s A Kicker in the Hannas Rating 0-62 Handicap (1625m).

It was Rockabella Boy’s ($4) third win from as many starts at Clifford Park as he develops a strong record at the track.

The Currie and Appo connection backed that up with a second with Thin Disguise in race two but it was Nozi Tomizawa who piloted the other Currie runner in the race Nyrambla to a commanding five-length triumph in the K&R Plumbing Supplies Class 1 Handicap (1000m).

Nyrambla started as a $2.25 favourite and repaid the faith shown by punters with an eye-catching front-running win.

Currie’s night then got even better in race three when Invitto made it two straight wins with victory in the Coca Cola Amatil Class 3 Plate over 1050 metres.

Invitto ($2.60fav) ran down $18 chance Interlude in the closing stages with Appo on board to post a one-length win.

Not done just yet, Currie and Appo combined with the race four winner as $2.25 favourite With A Promise romped to a four-length victory in the SEDL Agencies Class 2 Handicap (1200m).

Currie and Appo were then not far off the mark in race five when their hope Stellar Knight ($2.80) finished 1 1/4 lengths back third behind Winsome Sam.

Phyllis Kalinowski-trained Winsome Sam ($6) finished strong to edge out $1.90 favourite Temujin’s Rule by a half-length as someone else finally got the chance to occupy the winner’s stall.

The night finished off with Dazzle Em Sid kick-starting his career with a win in the GC Event Hire QTIS Three-Year-Old Maiden Plate (1625m).

Currie did not have a runner in the last race had a great strike rate..
