Trainer Steve Wolfe has dominated today’s meeting at Percy Spencer Racecourse in Albany, finishing with four winners.

Wolfe won the opening race on the seven-event program and then followed that up with three more victories, teaming up with jockey Peter Knuckey on three occasions.

Short-priced favourite Arrum Boy was a dominant winner of the Graham Manley’s Auto Repairs Handicap (1230m), bolting in by 1 ½ lengths after coming from fifth on the turn to shoot past Tranquilla Sunrise.

Knuckey won three straight races, firstly booting home promising type Mygirlfrankie and then Arrum Boy before Wild Fusion produced a fighting performance in the T-Quip Handicap (1600m) to edge out stablemate Chasing Chaos by half a length.

Dick Turpin three-year-old Amber Highway broke his maiden status at his third start, winning the USG Boral Maiden (1500m) comfortably for hoop Peter Hall, the first in Wolfe’s winning day.

Trainer Roy Rogers and jockey Daniel Staeck finished with a winning double on the card, Notta Mocha overcoming a wide draw to win race 2 and then red-hot favourite Ionyx justifying his short quote to win the Furphy Handicap (1450m) despite drifting to the outside rail in the straight.

Albany galloper Chengdu rounded out the day with an impressive second-up effort to win for local trainer Gerry Hughes.
