Boom Tasmanian three-year-old pacer Jerrys Jet added another feature race win to his growing list of harness racing credits when he made a one-act affair of the $30,000 Globe Derby 3YO sires stakes final over 2200 metres at UBET Racing Centre in Launceston on Sunday night.

The talented gelding had no trouble to lead and when trainer-driver Rohan Hillier gave him more rein at the top of the home straight he powered well clear of a top quality field to score by almost eight metres from Four Ex Dan with Fioki coming from near last to run third about three metres astern.

Jerrys Jet is owned by Charlie and Connie Beadman in partnership with prominent harness trainer Paul Hill who prepared the gelding until he turned three.

In Hill's care the son of Jereme's Jet won multiple feature races including the rich 2YO Sweepstakes final that was regarded by many pundits as one of the best win by a juvenile ever seen on the Hobart circuit.

But after the gelding was placed second to No Spring Secrets in a race in Hobart in February he was sent to Hillier for whom the gelding has won four times from as many starts since returning to racing in early May.

Jerrys Jet's career record stands at 10 wins and two seconds from 12 starts for over $66,000 in stakes.

His best mile rate is 1.57.9 which he set in winning a C1-C2 in Launceston as a lead-up to this latest outing.

Because he is not paid up for the Breeders Crown series in Victoria and he also is not Vicbred there are no feature races left for him in Tasmania.

The Beadmans have owned and bred some top class performers over the years including Group 1 Tasmanian Pacing Championship winner Thomas Magnum but Jerrys Jet is rapidly gaining status and could soon be regarded as the best they have raced.

Beadman was non-committal in regard to where Jerrys Jet goes from here but given he is not Breeders Crown qualified he might be sent to the paddock for a spell.
