David Hewitt - enjoyed his first Metro Treble
Goulburn harness racing trainer David Hewitt enjoyed one of the best nights of his training career on Saturday at Tabcorp Park Menangle when he trained a treble. Hewitt's winners were Super Sea, Mach Cade and Eclipser and he is confident the team will continue to race well going forward.

"It was great to get three winners at a Metropolitan meeting, it is the first time that I have done it and it is a real credit to the stable," Hewitt said.

"I thought Mach Cade deserved to win a race because he had been racing so consistently through the heats of the Carousel and I knew it was only a matter of time before he got some luck in his race, his win was very satisfying."

Super Sea is raced by Hewitt and recorded the 19th win of his career.

"He has been a super old horse for the stable, he didn't race as a two year old because he needed a bit of time and he can be a bit of a handful but he always had some ability and is consistently in the prize money."

"I've nominated him again for Saturday night and if they run the race to suit he will be in the finish again, the other winner Eclipser was on his worst behaviour at Canberra recently after a false start but he did everything right on the weekend and at his best he is a very talented horse."

Hewitt is still recovering from a fractured collarbone he suffered in a nasty race fall at Canberra in January.

"The recovery has been pretty good, I had a plate and screws put in to hold it together so it is a bit like a hardware shop in there but I will be going back to the doctors in the next week or so to get the all clear."

"I've managed pretty well, though about a fortnight ago we got a really cold weekend and that made it ache and tough to deal with but things could have been worse."
