Down Under harness racing representatives have yet another huge stakes night at The Meadowlands.

Trainer Brett Pelling led the charge on Saturday night training a winning double.

His first win came in the $401,850 Governors Cup Final for 2yo Colts and Geldings, where Papi Rob Hanover (Somebeachsomewhere - Panera - Rocknroll Hanover) was successful with David Miller in the bike. Papi Rod Hanover shot away from rivals to score in 1:51.1. This two-year-old's record is now six wins from 12 starts for $756,783 in earnings.

His second win came from top mare Caviart Ally ((Bettor's Delight - Allamerican Cool - No Nukes) in the $175,000 TVG Mares final, with Down Under reinsmen Andrew McCarthy doing the steering. Caviart Ally for Pelling and McCarthy nosed out the fabulous Down Under mare Shartin N in a thrilling finish to take home the prize in a scorching time of 1:48.3. Caviart Ally's record is now 25 wins for $1,828,016.

Andrew McCarthy was also successful with a double on the night but in the drivers seat. His first win was with the Andrew Harris trainee Rock Lights (Rock N Roll Heaven - Nuclear Light - No Nukes) in 1:50.1, followed up later on with the stunning Caviart Ally.

Down Under trainer Nifty Norman and driver Dexter Dunn also teamed up and grabbed a victory with the New Zealand bred and Australian raced Franco Totem N (Changeover - Treaty Franco - Badlands Hanover). The trio scored in a $22,500 pace where Franco Totem was a bold winner in 1:50. Franco Totem N was formerly raced in Australia by the Graham Family. He recorded 17 wins and over $120,000 in stake earnings while racing Down Under. In the US he has only had 7seven starts for three wins, two seconds and a third for $38,600 in earnings since his arrival in August this year.

Down Under trainer Chris Ryders top 3yo colt Bettors Wish (Bettor's Delight - Lifetime Star - Western Ideal) ran a huge race in the $350,000 TVG Open Pacing Final where he came in second place. A remarkable effort for the only 3yo in the race up against the top Open Pacers in the country. With Dexter Dunn in the bike, the pair flew home from far back to record a time of 1:49.2.

Dunn was again very narrowly beaten in the $350,000 TVG Open Trotting Final with exceptional trotting mare Manchego (Muscle Hill - Secret Magic - Cantab Hall) . Working overtime early in a 26.3 opening quarter, the pair found themselves on top just prior to the half. That being clocked in a lightning 53.4 trotting, giving a huge sight up the final stretch but just being nipped on the post by classy European trotter Six Pack (Muscle Mass - Pleasing Lady - Cantab Hall) who now retires to stud. Manchego and Dunn can be extremely proud of their second placing in 1:50, a super effort from a mare racing against the Open Male Trotters.
