Clyde harness racing trainer Jayne Davies collected two of the six winners at Monday's (March 19) Warragul harness racing meeting. Davies trained the quinella in the third race when Now And Forever defeated its more fancied stablemate Baccarat, while Passions Promise won the last race.

Both horses are owned by United States based standardbred owner/breeders Gordon Banks and Marc Hanover.

Trafalgar pacer Hiflyin Crusier broke back into the winners list when leading all of the way in race two.

Starting an odds on favourite in the sprint race, Hiflyin Cruiser led throughout for reinsman Glenn Hunter.

Glenn's father Chris trains Hiflyin Cruiser, raced by breeders Peter Ransom and Rowan Blackshaw.

Sunbury pacer Wahush flashed home to win the day's feature race, the $7500 Eastern Challenge Heat, while St Arnaud based trainer Brian Kiesey made the long trip to Warragul a successful one when Candy Digger won the Trotters Handicap.

Local pacer Gordons Ville recorded just its fifth placing from 52 starts when it ran second in the fifth race, the first time the horse filled the placings since September 2009.

The harness racing focus now centres on the Rapidvite Warragul Pacing Cup on Easter Sunday, April 8.
