TRAINER Mark Bell compared Miss Wing Wong to his former versatile star Jumpin’ Canary after Miss Wing Wong led throughout for a first-up Wentworth Park 720m win yesterday week.
When she scored comfortably in a respectable 42.74sec, Miss Wing Wong registered her fifth successive win.
Those wins, over 570, 630, 717 and 720m, have been posted at four different tracks, Nowra, Temora, Richmond and Wentworth Park.
“Miss Wing Wong puts me in mind of a good little bitch I trained called Jumpin’ Canary,” Bell said.
“She won 20 of her 57 races and was really versatile, winning over 520m at WP in 29.93 in December, 2008, and in 42.15 at the same track over 720m nine months later.
“With Jumpin’ Canary I discovered that she liked to race on different tracks.
“She seemed to relish going to a new course and was inclined to get bored, and not perform so well, if I took her to the same venue too often.
“Varying Miss Wing Wong’s track visits appears to be working well in exactly the same way.”
Jumpin’ Canary won at Bathurst, Dapto, Bulli, Canberra, Richmond, Maitland and Wentworth Park, while Miss Wing Wong’s 13 victories have come at five circuits, Dapto, Nowra, WP, Temora and Richmond.
“The plan is to take Miss Wing Wong to Ladbrokes Gardens for another round of the Ladbrokes Up For The Challenge pointscore, this time an event over 715 metres on Friday, May 18,” Bell said.
“She is on top of the leader board at present so I will be planning her future racing around the dates of the Challenge series.”
