Master trotting trainer Paul Nairn made it four wins in the Banks Peninsular Trotting cup when Habibty Ivy won the time honoured race at Motukarara on Sunday in the hands of driver Blair Orange.

Nairn had previously won the cup with Call Me Now in 1994 and Call You Later in 2002 and 2003.

Habibty Ivy (Love You - Ten To One) who was the favourite, led for the last 1400m of the race and held on to beat the second favourite Destiny Jones by a short margin. 

The winners time was 3-44.2 for the 2810m with a fast final 800m on the dead track in 59.2.

Blair Orange also won the last race on the card with the Nigel McGrath trained Goodlookin Chick.

That win gave him his 27th win this season which increased his lead in the national drivers premiership. Orange is currently 12 wins clear of Matthew Williamson who is second on 15 wins for the season, with David Butcher third on 13 wins.
