She showed potential at three, winning impressively at Roxburgh but since then She's Allthe Craze hasn't shown a consistent formline.

However when it counted in the first $12,000 Gold Chip Trotters Final at Wyndham today she showed her true worth. 

"She's been racing well below her best. She's had numerous health issues but today she showed she's starting to get on top of them. She's been training fine but racing poorly. It's just been in the last two or three starts that she's started to get on top of things. In the last month or so she has really put condition on," said trainer driver Nathan Williamson

The five year old Crazed mare is owned by Brian McCully, (who bred her, Hugh Catto, Ian Pitches from Oamaru and Bill Johnson who owns the Waimate Hotel.  

"They've been great. They've stepped back realising that we've been having problems. I'm glad they were able to win that nice race today because they've been so loyal."

She's Allthe Craze is out of the Monarchy mare Kylie Ree which won four of her eleven starts. She was trained primarily by Mark Purdon and Grant Payne. As a two year old she won the Group Two Two Year Old Trotters Championship beating Paramount Geegee and also won the Group One Two Year Old Ruby at Cambridge.

At three she won the Hambletonian at Ashburton.

She's Allthe Craze is Kylie Ree's first foal while the talented Springbank Lachie is her second. Williamson bought her next foal Hawaiian Hula (two year old filly by Dream Vacation) and then last year he purchased the mare. He also owns a Trixton yearling colt which is due to foal to Father Patrick in the next few weeks.

"The owners have an option of taking a share in every foal she has." 

In today's race she settled four back on the inside. She got off the running line with 500 metres to run. After getting a check with 400 metres to run, she came wide but was still five lengths away from the leader at the top of the straight. She let down nicely in the middle of the track to beat Southern Alps by a neck.

"We were left parked early. I thought 'I won't overdrive her.' I knew she was good with one sprint." Williamson said the mare was checked at the 400. And stated it would have been a travesty to have been beaten. "She was too good on the day."
