Hunter Valley harness racing trainer Shane Tritton brought up 100 winners for the season in New South Wales when he produced four winners at Tabcorp Park Menangle on Saturday night. It is the second time Tritton has completed the feat and it is an achievement that he finds satisfying.

"It is good to crack the century for the second straight year, I would have hoped that I could have brought up the milestone a little bit earlier because we started the season off very well," Tritton said.

"Credit must go to the drivers, Lauren (Panella), David (Morris) and Jack (Trainor) all do a great job and they are a big part of the success for the stable as too are my workers."

One of Tritton's top performers Suave Stuey Lombo was scratched from last Saturday night but has been nominated to compete this weekend.

"What made the stable's performance at Menangle so good last week was that I had a virus go through the stable and in the space of two days I had 14 horses suffering with high temperatures including Suave Stuey Lombo."

"They didn't get physically sick but their temperatures were a big concern but everything has gone back to normal in the last couple of days so it is business as usual."

Tritton is planning a raid on the upcoming Queensland Winter Carnival and could take up to a dozen horses to Brisbane.

"Suave Stuey Lombo, Ardghal and Yayas Hotspot are all confirmed to go, hopefully Mach Beauty will be ready but I will just have to wait and see plus I will target races with Aspiring Artist, Marty Monkhouser and possibly Light In Every Day."

"I still have to work out where I am going to stay so that will probably decide on just how many I can take up but most of my Metropolitan class horses will be making the trip."
