The promising Demon with his - owner-trainer, Cleone Hill.

Hobby harness racing trainer Cleone Hill is only a novice when it comes to training standardbreds but seven-year-old gelding Promising Demon proved she knows a bargain buy when she sees one. Hill handed over a modest $1500 for the gelded son of Pacific Rocket-Paksa Punch that was bred by Fred and Pauline Barker.

Promising Demon is the only horse Hill has in work and in Launceston last Sunday night he gave a bold display of front running to register his second win fort his owner-trainer.

Hill’s father is prominent owner-breeder John Jetson.

It was a courageous performance from Promising Demon that was tested in the lead throughout the race but when driver Kate McLeod called on the gelding for the supreme effort in the home straight he responded magnificently and went on to win comfortably from Break Of Nite and Pretyboytoby.
