Sandown success continues for Hamillson

Up-and-coming sprinter Hamillson further promoted his ‘track specialist’ status at Sandown Park with a victory in Thursday night’s Free-For-All.

‘Randy’, as he’s known at home, improved his Sandown record to a stunning six wins from eight starts and boasts an overall record of 14 wins from 24 starts.

Trainer Richard Hill was extremely proud of his boy.

“He’s unbelievable our Randy,” said Hill.

“He’s very talented. In fact, it’s more natural talent than training. He’s just very special.”

Trained from a residential block on the Mornington Peninsula, Hamillson is quickly becoming one of the most reliable beginners the sport has to offer.

His excellent box manners earned him a placing in last Friday’s Warragul Cup final.

“He’s always over the odds but if you look at his record it makes him an outlier. He’s too reliable to be $5 for a place.”

Hill and Hamillson will look to target next Thursday’s Australia Sprint special event at Sandown Park along with its $15,000 first prize.

Earlier in the night Dailly-trained Fabriola Ximenez pulled out a career-best performance to topple Group 1 winner and kennelmate Zippy Tesla in a best-of-night 29.24.
