Reinswoman Jocelyn Young and trainer Debra Lewis teamed up to claim winning trebles together and steal the show last Friday night at the Albany Harness Racing Club.

Pierre Whitby started a great night for the duo in race four of the nine-race card, the four-year-old gelding justifying his $2.80 quote by winning the Zero Harmdash Pace (2690m), edging out Allwood Glow by a half head on the line.

Young and Lewis then made it a race-to-race double in race five when $1.34 favourite American Tour proved too strong for her rivals in the Jimmy’s Tribute Pace (2265m) prevailing by more than 6m.

Less than an hour later the pair had three winners for the evening at Harold Reid Paceway after Right Royal Cheer brought up her third career win, saluting by more than 5m in race seven, the Scooters Finale Fillies and Mares Pace (2265m).

Leading trainer-driver Nathan Turvey also tasted success, saddling up two winners and driving three to victory himself.

In race three Miracle Moose, the $1.50 favourite, took home the money after winning the HE McAleese Minute Pace (2265m) by 6m over Faiselle.

The Terry Ferguson-trained Beiderbecke won by a half neck to The Glass Ceiling in race six, the Hanson Handicap Pace (2247m).

Then Turvey added a third winner when his own runner Alfredi dominated the final race, the Hanson Quarry Run 3YO Pace (2265m), winning by 22.7m.

Leading Albany reinsman Corey Peterson guided Batavia Silverline home in the first race.

Then the Albany Cup winning combination of driver Emily Suvaljko and trainer Barry Howlett teamed up with Ohoka Titan to win race two, the Spuds Sprint Pace (2265m), by 1.2m.

AHRC will host their memorial night tomorrow from 6.35pm.
