Fcee remains unbeaten on Australian soil after scoring another easy victory at Fairfield
Harness Racing NSW.

Former New Zealand gelding Fcee is headed to Brisbane. With the UBET Winter Carnival starting on July 2 at Albion Park, harness racing trainer Amanda Turnbull  has penciled in the Listed $25,000 Gold Coast Derby followed by the Gr.1 $75,000 Queensland Derby with their emerging talent.

Since arriving on Australian soil a few months ago, the Washington VC gelding remains unbeaten from four starts.

Earlier today (Monday), Fcee led throughout in the St Johns Park Bowling Club Maltese Drivers Pace at Fairfield when handled by Mick Formosa.

Fcee rated 1:59.2 for the 2113m mobile start event.

“He was good again today and continues to head in the right direction and the Queensland campaign fits his schedule quite nicely so we’re prepared to give him a crack at some of the better races. We think he’s pretty handy and the trip away will tell us a lot more about him.” Turnbull said.

The stable enjoyed a day out at Fairfield today after landing a one/two result in the main event, the Cabra-Vale Diggers J.D Watts Memorial with Oh Jonny Be Good defeating Betabcool in the 2533m standing start feature.

Oh Jonny Be Good was handled by Nathan Jack.

It was the final start on Australian soil for the Mach Three gelding after being sold to North American clients.

Meanwhile, stable star Tact Tate has been sent to the spelling paddock following his victory in Saturday night’s Gr.3 $31,800 Crown Hotel Mount Eden Four-year-old Stakes at TABCORP Park, Menangle.

The speedy pacer was being considered for the Brisbane winter carnival but has contracted a cold and will now have a break.

Tact Tate has won 8 from 12 to date this season while amassing more than $150,000 in prizemoney.
