Double Ton For Pike

Friday, 27th July 2018

Meanwhile, displaying yet again why he is the darling of punters who invest in Perth racing and its surrounds, jockey William Pike took his seasonal tally to 200 wins yesterday at Pinjarra when scoring aboard Mystery Affair in the day's opening event. Reaching the milestone in the shadows of the season's close aboard the favourite that was crushed deep into the red, Pike eclipsed his tally of last year where he just missed the double ton. In the prior season he set the bar incredibly high at 222. According to punters.com, despite Pike's 33 win margin ahead of his nearest interstate rival (Brenton Avdulla in Sydney), his brilliant 26.3 percent strike rate aboard runners that are invariably near the top of the market still provided his supporters with a positive return on their investments. Perth Racing paid tribute to Pike's record-breaking efforts two years ago which can be viewed below.
