Listen to what trainer Ben Yole had to say about the win of Happy Schnapps and hear why his stable is enjoying so much success this season.

Harness racing trainer Ben Yole has made a brilliant start to the season and that he keeps building on his successful team suggests he could emerge as Tasmania's premier mentor by season's end.

At UBET Park Hobart on Sunday night Yole added another win to his tally when Happy Schnapps led throughout to win the UBET Pace over 2090 meters with talented novice driver Taylor Ford in the sulky.

Despite being well placed in the C2-C3 event Happy Schnapps started at the lucrative price of $5.10.

Yole said Happy Schnapps had been going well enough to suggest the five-year-old gelding would make his presence felt and in the end the son of Grinfromeartoear made a one-act affair of the race scoring by over four metres from Soo Special with Laforce 1-1/2 metres away third.

The win took Yole's season tally to 32 to be 10 clear of his nearest rival Nathan Ford.

The trainer's younger brother Mark Yole has capitalised on the stable's success to be the state's leading driver on 26 wins and well clear of Ricky Duggan (15) and the injured Gareth Rattray (14).
