‘Harness racing drivers from Sydney’s Bankstown Paceway are dominating the sport in New South Wales – and there is no better example than last Saturday night (October 5th, 2013), when Bankstown-based drivers claimed wins in five out of the nine races on the Metropolitan fixture card,’ Bankstown Paceway harness racing club president Les Bentley has told Harnesslink.
‘Bankstown Paceway’s 29th Schweppes Sydney Cup winner Lauren Panella repeated her victory with Freyberg NZ – the six year old gelded son of Washington VC USA and Sam’s Beach Babe NZ – in the TAB Rewards Heat One race,’ Mr Bentley said.
‘The triple Group 1 race winner and New South Wales’ twenty year old leading reinswoman also won the TAB Rewards Heat Two race with six year old bay gelding Franco Noriega NZ, by Artspace USA out of Notafella Franco NZ, who is trained by acclaimed third generation Bankstown Paceway horseman Darren Binskin,’ he said.
‘Not to be outdone, Mr Binskin himself claimed race wins from the driver’s seat with nine year old bay gelding Ohoka Nevada NZ and six year old bay mare Tact Hayleys Delight NZ, both of whom her trains,’ the president said.
‘Finally, dual back-to-back Bankstown Paceway premiership winning driver Joshua Willick took out the Slingsby Holdings Pace with Lee Van Cleef NZ with the same skill and precision as the six year old bay gelding’s Hollywood namesake could handle a six shooter in his epic Western flicks,’ Mr Bentley added.
