Broodmare gem Monaloo completed a rare harness racing feat last night.

Boasting a perfect strike rate as a matron, Monaloo produced a pair of winners in the space of a couple of hours.

Even more impressive is the fact the dam’s progeny were successful in two states.

Promising pacer Freds A Safari kicked started proceedings when triumphant at Globe Derby for trainer-driver Darren Billinger.

Rating 1:59.6 for the 1800 metres, the four-year-old continued his unbeaten run from three outings this season.

By Safari, the feature race winner extended his record to 10 wins and eight placings from 25 starts.

Lord Monaloo then matched his half-brother’s feat when victorious at Shepparton for astute horsewoman Kylie Sugars.

Driven by Sugars’ brother, Greg, Lord Monaloo enjoyed a three-wide trail during the latter stages before scoring in 1:56.8 over 2190 metres.

Racing in consistent fashion this term, the son of It Is I has notched three wins and three placings from six starts for an overall tally of 22 wins and 24 placings from 59 starts.

Monaloo next foals is an unraced two-year-old daughter by It Is I.
