Originally the 4YO was going to be called Carillon which, according to the dictionary, is defined as a full ‘peal of bells’.
Unfortunately the name was not available so the neddy was named Full Peal which caused the Stawell racecaller no amount of trouble when the 4YO scored over 1600m on 11 March.
Evidently the gelding got called Full Pedal, Full Cream and Full Pearl before both the horse and caller got it right when they hit the line to score an solid victory (Full Peal’s second from five starts after winning on debut at Hamilton in October).
It appears the Clangalangs are a good fit over a mile, especially as Hi Belle – stepping up to 1600m for the first time – grabbed the money at Sandown on Wednesday (23 March).
Full Peal is out of the West Quest mare Lake Solveig (also the dam of 7-time winner Lake Crescent), while Hi Belle hails from the Jugah mare Seldom Caught (from the family of Queensland Group One winners Court Ruler and Black Piranha).
