Victorian trotter Eurasian Hanover broke a long drought from the winners’ circle with her victory at Bendigo last night.

After enjoying a perfect trail two-back along the pegs, Eurasian Hanover registered her first triumph since January 2013.

Thrilled with the performance, trainer David Magri stated the victory didn’t come as a total shock despite the “long time between drinks”.

“She has been going better than it looks on paper,” Magri said. “Her last start when fifth at Maryborough was a nice effort and I knew all she needed was the right run and amount of luck.”

With Magri in the cart, the mare was pushed through from the inside of the second row as Toscano worked to the lead.

Finishing strongly along the sprint lane, Eurasian Hanover dashed to a soft four-and-a-half metre win from Good Boy Ali, with Toscano three-and-a-half metres away third.

“She can’t do much work, so getting a nice quiet run like that along the pegs is just what she needs,” Magri said. “Down the back straight I knew she was travelling comfortably.

“I was very pleased with the way she finished it off.”

By Sierra Kosmos, the squaregaiter is from former handy trotter, Columbias Gindin, which boasts two winners from four starters.

Columbias Gindin is also the dam of promising trotter Columbias Deejay, which is a member of the Magri stable.

“He didn’t have much luck when first-up from a break at Ballarat last week, but he is in the Final at Melton and hopefully things can go his way,” Magri said. “He will also be fitter for the run, now it’s up to the draw and luck.”
