With current racing having limited standing start events, Sanderson proved a deft touch at the art, with five of his nine winners for the week coming from the tapes.
Along with the dual wins of Orlando Jolt, the three winners recorded for Sanderson at Redcliffe’s Friday night fixture were all under standing start conditions.
Complementing the wins, two of the victories also resulted in new records being set, as mentioned earlier in the wrap.
The win of Clintal Do was the middle of the three winners for Adam, with the gelding overcoming a 30-metre handicap to score a stylish victory in preparation for his upcoming Redcliffe Cup mission.
Six meetings are scheduled this week where the focus will be squarely on Redcliffe.
This Saturday’s metropolitan fixture will be from the Peninsula Paceway with a programme jam-packed with feature racing.
Headlining the meeting will be the Final of the Group 1 Garrards Yearling Sale Series for two-year-old pacers with the field decided following two heats held last Friday.
The Redcliffe Cup is the other Group status event on the night, with the $50,000 Group 2 standing start always a keenly contested race.
Not carrying Group status, it could be the Redcliffe Derby that currently carries the most interest with the star New Zealand three-year-old Krug a likely starter in the race.
Having already accepted an invite to the upcoming inaugural Group 1 Rising Sun, a Derby start will be the first Australian appearance for Cran Dalgety’s talented colt.
Support races include the Redcliffe Oaks, the Garrards Showcase Final and the Kinghts and Dames Final.
Albion Park host meetings on Tuesday afternoon and Friday night, Redcliffe fixtures will be held on Wednesday night, Thursday afternoon and Saturday night.
The week will be completed with a meeting from Marburg on Sunday.
