Kotare Madhi made it back-to-back wins when he led throughout to take out the Luxbet Club Extra Stakes over 2200 metres at the Luxbet Harness Racing Centre in Launceston on Sunday night.

Kotare Madhi notched his first win for Brighton trainer Dylan Ford in Hobart last week with his sister Taylor Ford in the cart and she again teamed up with the five-year-old gelding to repeat the dose.

The Christian Cullen gelding has taken a while to come to terms with racing in his adopted state but after he won last week his trainer predicted the gelding could string a few wins together.

Kotare Madhi ($5.40) showed brilliant gate speed to lead from barrier four and once in front he was rated superbly by his talented young driver who made the winning move when she released the deafeners 400 metres from home.

Thirlstane King ($3.30 fav) trailed the leader and Glenenise ($9.90) had the coveted one-out-one-back position but they were left flat-footed when Ford called on the leader to sprint.

Kotare Madhi won by over 12 metres with a half-metre separating Thirlstane King and Glenenise while Cheshire Cat ($10.20) rattled home from near last turning for home to finish fourth and only two metres behind the minor placegetters.
