Respected harness racing trainer Phil Williamson knew his runner Pyramid Monarch would go her usual honest race last night at Addington Raceway.

" From the draw, I knew she would give a good account of herself" 

" She always gives you her best and the field wasn't as strong as she had faced in her last couple," Phil said.

The six year old daughter of Monarchy has been a great money spinner for her owners with last nights win taking her earnings over the $50,000 mark for a C2 trotter.

" We have taken advantage of all the concessions on the way through and its paid off."

" She has all the attributes of a high class trotter but just lacks that real staying ability to go with her speed," Phil said.

Sent straight to the front last night by driver Brad Williamson, Pyramid  Monarch always looked in control before brushing home in 58 and 27.6 for an easy win.

" I didn't really use her out of the gate as she is not the type of mare you can use at both ends."

" I let her get to the front under her own steam without pushing her."

" She was fair bolting off the back the last time and I was pretty confident a fair way out."

" The 1950 metres suits her a lot more than those 2600 metres races where she can battle to find the line.

" To be honest she is a lot better in front but she just doesn't get there very often," Brad said.

Pyramid Monarch is bred to be a bit better than average, coming from the Sir Roy McKenzie inspired "Diedre " breed which is red hot at the moment with Monbet and Conon Bridge just two of the many from the family who are flying at present.

" She should make a lovely broodmare when her racing days are over," Phil said.

Going by the ease of last nights win, that may be a wee while away yet.
