MiRrOrZ will be staying at home over the xmas carnival, but will closely be following the interstate results. More interested in Colley Reserve, but after reviewing the marks of the LaTrobe meet MiRrOrZ thought to help out the Tassie journos in preparing the following article for post Latrobe Mile.
Tasmanian local Sam 'Ferg Burger' Ferguson won a closely fought Latrobe mile last night by a mere 12 secs from the next competitor in perfect twilight conditions. The crowd roared as Sam hit the front 900m out and was never headed.
"Ferg Burger" was confident going in after clocking 3.44 for the 1500m at the Prestgious Zatopek meet, and then receiving a handicap 60m more than expected.
"Yeah I was confident, but still had to get the job done. I'm rapt."
"Ferg Burger" hopes the big win will help build on his already impressive season as he looks to run in the A Series meets around the country.
The next meet in the TAL Christmas Carnival is in Devonport on the 29th and 30th December.
