Veteran pacer Fanci A Dance dropped back from Free-For-All company at his two previous starts, and he appreciated the easier opposition when he was not extended in setting the pace and coasting to victory in the 2130m Gold Medal Xmas Ham Classic Pace at Gloucester Park on Friday night.
Fanci A Dance, the $2.30 favourite from barrier three, dashed to the front after 400m and he sped over the final 800m in 55.8sec. to beat $6.50 chance Queen Shenandoah by four and a half lengths, rating 1.55.7.
“He is doing nothing wrong at the moment and there are more wins in store,” said reinsman Chris Voak.
Fanci A Dance, bred, owned and trained in Busselton by Barry Howlett, is racing in a purple patch and he now has earned $118,491 from 13 wins and 19 placings from 58 starts.
He is by Rock n Roll Heaven and is the fourth foal out of the Fake Left mare Fancipance, who won 11 times in Queensland before arriving in WA in 2007 when she had ten starts in the State for one win, in a C5 event at Gloucester Park.
