Kadina trainer-driver Leah Harvey enjoyed a successful night at Port Pirie on Friday, driving a winner, training a quinella and placing in two others. In fact the only time Harvey was not in the placings was aboard the Bill Atkinson-trained Tell No Tales which finished fourth.
Harvey finished second in the first event on the Jayson Adams trained Atom Again and third in the second race on Contrarymary Lombo, trained by herself.
She was in the winners circle in the fourth event on the card aboard the Anne Rogers trained Fleetwoodjazz. It was the seven-year-old geldings first start since March and he showed great heart to find the line first.
Harvey then trained a quinella in the sixth event, where she drove Pacific Lignum into second place while Hyland Zali was the victor for Kapunda reinsman Matthew Smith.
Both fillies were racing for the first time this year with the three-year-old Alabar Southern Cross Series being a long term target.
Despite piloting the odds-on favourite Lignum Twister in the final event, Harvey was forced to settle for second place behind Our Deal, but must have finished the night satisfied with the results.
