Cleary Family Set To Clean Up At Queanbeyan Races

By Tony Megahey

The ACT’s most celebrated racing family offers prohibitive odds, but as guaranteed “bank interest” according to a bullish Joe Cleary at Saturday’s six-race TAB Queanbeyan meeting.

“Looking at the form, we should bookend the meeting with winners; like barrier trials for decent prizemoney, but real short odds,” quipped the popular larrikin who maintains his long and profitable association with entrepreneur and leading industry breeder Gerry Harvey.

They combine with former Hawke’s galloper Creative Vision, a More Than Ready four-year-old gelding in a Kambah Inn Cup (1200m) maiden, the final event.

“A real nice type, I’ve had him for just the one run for a placing here, he’s really progressed and I’m confident he’ll win races - starting here. They reasoned he wasn’t up to winning city grade and that’s fair enough.

“But he’s in his right grade, the maiden should be out of the way and I’m confident he’s up to a Highway race in the near future.”

Creative Vision carries 59kg for Brodie Loy from a handy barrier and will be “well into the red” according to Joe. And Joe’s Golden Slipper-winning father, Frank, might well be the only danger with dual maiden placegetter Marry Me Molly in a moderate form race. Joe has stablemates Seealla and All In the Sky in a Statesman Hotel Curtin Cup Maiden (900m).

“Seealla is a lovely progressive filly, she showed decent speed in a couple of Moruya placings, she’s come on, should get the maiden out of the way as well. I mean she led and wasn’t beaten that far by that good horse of Danny Williams’s Kopi Luwak, who ran super in Saturday’s Highway.” Seealla (Al Aseel) has 55kg, reduced by Chelsea MacFarlane’s claim in a small field.

Another popular local, Gratz Vella, is focusing on three restricted class gallopers after his stable star Wanna Get A What resumes at Friday’s Wagga Wagga TAB meeting.

“He threw a shoe and picked up a bruise, he’ll be underdone but might still be good enough,” Gratz offered. “On Saturday, Addchan is my best; just an honest consistent mare, won four races and won at Queanbeyan.”

Queanbeyan races on a good 3 and in fine to hot conditions.
