Mackalan mows em down!
Promising three-year-old Mackalan, who was bred, reared and sold by Benstud Standardbreds, came from absolute last to win at his first start for five months at Kapunda on Monday (January 7).
Forced three and four wide for the last lap, the colt was still spotting the leaders a tidy start on the home turn but clicked into another gear to prevail in the final few strides.
He has won three of his nine starts to date including the SA Sapling Stakes at two.
Mackalan is the eighth foal and seventh winner of the Group 1 winning mare Surstromming (by Panorama).
