It must be hard at the moment for harness racing owners Lex and Heather Williams to stop smiling as their golden run continues on both sides of the Tasman.

Last night at Melton One Over Da Moon won again  for trainer driver Chris Lang in a 2:00.8 mile rate for 1720 meters as he continued his preparation for the Victorian Trotting Derby.

That was the icing on the cake after their Angus Hall two year old trotting filly Petite One gave a handy field of older trotters a start and a beating on debut at Addington last night.

Dropping out to last early from her bad draw, Petite One was sent forward three wide by her trainer driver Mark Purdon with 1200 meters to run before eventually getting up outside the leader Strathfield Son with 700 meters to run.

From there she sprinted strongly once they turned for home, putting the issue beyond doubt in a few strides.

Mark Purdon hardly moved in the bike as Petite One went to the line with plenty in reserve.

Petite One covered the 1950 meters in 2;30 with closing sectionals of 60.4 and 29.5 , an impressive run in the bitterly cold conditions.

When you look at the pedigree of Petite One it is little wonder she is so talented.

Not only is she by the great Canadian trotting sire Angus Hall but her dam is the very talented Sundon mare Petite Sunset (7 wins)($115,070) and her grand-dam is none other than the champion trotting mare Pride Of Petite (35 wins) ($811,816).

The manner of Petite One's victory last night would suggest that it might not be the last time she brings a smile to Lex and Heather's faces.
