Four year old harness racing mare Big Mumma Fitz (Armbro Operative/Hi Ho Fitz) has certainly come of age this season, chalking up four wins from eight outings, the latest at her home track Dalvui Raceway Terang on Tuesday May 14 after a rather slow start to her career.

Trained and driven by Robert Arundell, Hi Ho Fitz first up since March, was successful in taking the Talisman Floats Terang Pace for C1 class over 1680 metres in a mile rate of 1-59.7.

Starting from gate two on the second line, Hi Ho Fitz was bustled in the early stages, lobbing four back in the moving line with the well backed pole marker Chasing Chelsea leading.

Despite making home turn four wide, Hi Ho Fitz at start number 13, finished all over the top of her rivals to defeat the pacemaker by 2.1 metres, with Bohemian Lombo third after trailing the front runner.

It was a great night for the locals, with the Marg Lee trained half brothers Keayang Starzzz and Keayang Rustler taking their respective races - Keayang Starzzz the Mt Noorat Freighters Pace for C0 class over 1680 metres and Keayang Rustler the Dick & Anne Box Pace for C4 & C5 class over 2180 metres.

Quality 3-Y-0 Four Starzzz Shark/Sayaka gelding Keayang Starzzz had nothing more than a "stroll in the park" in his race with Glen Craven in the sulky.

Leading out from gate two, Keayang Starzzz was never let go in accounting for the ultra consistent Arr En Special which raced outside him by 11.9 metres, with Life Is A Pleasure (one/two) third in a rate of 1-59.

It was a different story with 5-Y-0 Rustler Hanover/Sayaka gelding Keayang Rustler who over raced all though the event outside the leader and favourite The Noble Steed after being trapped wide and driven forward from outside the front line.

Surging to the front prior to the home turn, Keayang Rustler looked a sitting target on straightening, but defied all challengers to score by 1.2 metres from Giveusagrin (one/one) which also worked out of gate five, with the fast finishing Tasmanian My Micky Blue Eyes third off a three wide trail from last at the bell.

Keayang Rustler was driven by Marg's son Jason who has a huge future as a reinsman ahead of him.

Kerryn Manning's Kiwi bred Bettors Delight/Itz Got The Giggles gelding Itz Dreamin Jonesy chalked up his fourth victory in 7 outings when successful in the Cooinda Work Crew 3-Y-0 Pace over 2180 metres.

A winner of the Terang Guineas on April 16, Im Dreaming Jonesy from gate two on the second line settled five back in the running line after several runners made forward moved to sit outside the leader Lightning Shark.

Easing three wide racing for the bell, Im Dreaming Jonesy sustained a long run three wide uncovered to score from a death-seating Seven And A Half and Lightning Shark in a mile rate of 2-00.7.

Dunnstown's David Murphy is no stranger to Terang meetings and snared the Welcome Computers Vicbred Pace for C1 class over 1680 metres with One Fellas Fancy, a home bred 6-Y-0 daughter of Pacific Fella and Medarlinone.

Beginning fast from gate five to lead, One Fellas Fancy first up since March, was never headed in defeating Ruby My Love which trailed and Roman Way from last in a rate of 2-00.6.
