My Carbon Copy had led and won four times before contesting the 2130m The West Australian Pace at Gloucester Park on Friday night, but he showed his great liking for sit-sprinting when he produced a sizzling burst of speed to score an impressive victory.

My Carbon Copy ($5.50) was making his second appearance after a spell when he began off the back line and Gary Hall jnr quickly had him racing in fifth position, three back on the pegs, with the $3.90 second fancy Infatuation setting the pace from the $2.80 favourite Bettorstartdreaming in the breeze.

Hall bided his time until he eased My Carbon Copy off the pegs 300m from home and then took the five-year-old four wide 100m later. My Carbon Copy surged to the front 120m from the post and won by two lengths from $7 chance Vespa, with Queen Shenandoah ($11) running home solidly to be third.

This improved My Carbon Copy’s record to 41 starts for 12 wins, 15 placings and $140,831 in prizemoney. He is a full-brother to former star pacer My Hard Copy, whose greatest asset was his dazzling sit-sprint ability. My Hard Copy was the winner of two WA Pacing Cups and one Fremantle Cup before being retired to stud with a record of 89 starts for 27 wins, 23 placings and stakes of $1,271,592.
