Four of the best for Mackalan

Four of the best for Mackalan

 

Promising three-year-old Mackalan, who was born and bred by Benstud Standardbreds notched his fourth win from eight starts this season and earned a new speed badge of 1:58.3 when he comfortably defeated older, more experienced rivals at Port Pirie on Saturday night (April 6).

 

After enjoying a soft passage, the colt was angled three-wide on the home turn and sprinted sharply to score by 3.1 metres.

 

The winner of six races, Mackalan is out of the $150,000 winning mare Surstromming and is her eighth foal and seventh winner.
