The Echuca meeting on Thursday (Jly 17) belonged to the Jack brothers Nathan and Daniel, who finished the night with three winners.

Nathan being successful aboard father Russell's 4-Y-0 Armbro Operative/Pilularis gelding Arma Harris in the Echuca Steel Pacers Handicap for C1 or better class over 2130 metres and Chiltern trainer Peter Romero's ultra consistent Panorama/Regal Sarnel gelding Regalramapleasure in the Campaspe Park 3-Y-0 Pace over 1755 metres.

Arma Harris enjoyed a cosy passage on the back of the leader Bubble Art, before using the sprint lane to gain the verdict in advance of her, with Low Velocity which raced in the open third in a 2-05.2 rate, while Reganramapleasure having his 23rd start for the season, led throughout in defeating Lucky Joker and Double Possible.

Daniel Jack driving the Ian Ward (Invergordon) trained Jet Laag/Miss Kenru gelding Old Warandyte Road from gate three in the Moama Electrical Services 2-Y-0 Pace over 2160 metres, gave his a sweet trip on the back of the leader and hot favourite So Divine driven by Nathan.

Coming away from the inside on the home turn, Old Warandyte Road made a last stride lunge at So Divine to get the judge's nod in a punishing finish which tricked many, with Delta Khan third in a 2-05.7 rate.

A DOUBLE DOUBLE

Bacchus Marsh reinsman Michael Stanley also landed a double on the night at Echuca, steering father Ian's Island Fantasy/Bold Sapphire filly Sapphire Island to an all the way victory in the Moama Bowling Club 3-Y-0 Pace in advance of Davids Lady along the sprint lane from three back and Manou which trailed the winner.

The mile rate 2-02.1. Michael then guided his own charge Morningglory to success in the M & J Everett Pace for C2 & C3 class over 2160 metres.

Settling a mile off the leaders from gate two on the second row in a fast run affair, Morningglory a Northern Lights/Alicia Lady 6-Y-0 mare, sprinted brilliantly in the last lap to sweep to the front well before the home turn in running out an easy winner from Final Answer and Lisas Lad in 2-02.9.
